- Switch to Java? [closed] 4 answers
I'm primarily a VBA/VB3-6/VB.Net developer of 15+ years with several years of C# experience. Myself and another developer (a seasoned senior level java developer) were hired on at this new company at the same time. Our goal is to replace an internal web application built (in flash) by a third party. Since my coworker is at a higher level and has more knowledge overall for all the moving parts required for this project, the decision has been made to go with java for everything. I have very little java experience. Any recommendations for surviving the transition and not being a total ball and chain on this new project? Should I take a class? Buy a book (which one(s))? Watch youtube video tutorials? Does anyone recommend I look for a .NET shop job instead? I like this company a lot and would rather stay but I'm a huge Visual Studio/.NET fan. Thanks in advance!
