I know the community is centered around front end (this question is more backend related) but I wanted to know what your thoughts were on transitioning from a React Developer to a C# Web programmer (.NET).
I’ve started dabbling into C# and I’ll be honest even coming from a TypeScript background, it’s hard - real hard; Object Oriented Programming is very different from functional programming.
I am finding that even with some experience, React jobs are very competitive which I guess shouldn’t be a surprise since there are so many courses/videos/bootcamps that teach it. I feel that learning something like C# would help give an edge since it’s not something everyone’s trying to jump into but still widely used in corporate environments.
While I do know there’s still a lot I need to learn on the front end NextJS(SSR , SSG), Redux, and Testing. I do find some diminishing returns here as I continue to learn front end and do wonder if it’s better I put more effort into a backend language like C# or Java (I know Java is more popular but I think C# has a bright future).
