The first of a series of posts I’ve wanted to write for years to educate recruiters about how to do their jobs from a frontend developer’s (used with the old school lack of capitalization and one-word format intentionally, also intentionally avoiding the more novel full stack term that’s co-opting frontend) perspective.
In more length, Java is a big heavy costly language which mostly large banks and high demand systems use due to its high ability for scale. It never drops a transactions thus is apt for banks. The big downside is it’s difficult to deploy, has a very steep licensing requirement, requires specific also costly hardware, and generally is overkill for most situations especially given superior cloud infrastructure competitors.
For recruiters to made it this far, kudos.
