Hello, is there any (java) body out there?

I'm seeing a decreasing or just out right distinctive lack of any Java or even sensible backend post or discussions going on.
A quick search for the Java tag on Dev.to reveals less than a handful of posts in 2019 and the majority of those are interview questions and techniques. This seems to be the theme across development communities.

Are we experiencing a backend (I say java as an example because that is my bread and butter) resource shortage? Are backend Devs less communal about knowledge sharing? What gives?

I'm pretty new to Dev.to, but my impression is that this is a more beginner-friendly community, which means that people generally are using more trendy technologies - for better or for worse. I believe that dzone.com has a very healthy community of Java developers. FWIW, I've made my living for the last 10 years resuscitating legacy enterprise apps with modern frontends, so I live in both worlds. My last enterprise project was replacing a gnarly JSP mess with a modern REST/React/Responsive UI while leaving the core J2EE application untouched. Good times.


You might be right. I am also a backend Java/Scala developer but I also touch the frontend. Guess I should share something in the near future as well...

Let's talk about an unnecessary but popular Vue plugin

Do we really need a plugin for everything?
