Discussion on: Are newer developers pushed too exclusively towards web development?

I personally had a different experience, but I could be an exception to the rule. In 2016 I started a traineeship to become a Java developer. The traineeship was organised by the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration. The main focus for me at the time was Java SE and Java EE, I only got the basics for front-end technology (some HTML, Javascript and jQuery, but no actual front-end technologies like Angular, React of Vue). For the first two years of by Java career I also mainly worked on back-end systems. Nowadays I'm working more on a full-stack solution.
