The sheen of Java is dull to me. However most of the largest Banks and Huge Retail companies aren't moving off of Java anytime soon. Java is massive, maybe larger than .Net!

So, is Kotlin a “projection” of that they MIGHT switch to?

My most recent experience with the largest electronic retail company in the U.S. only saw Kotlin as good for Android work, but it had not become official to use it at all. Everything else was Java with some .Net back end work.

Ok, so what would you suggest for someone to go for? Front end, or python or Java or Kotlin?

Thank you

I'm biased frontend Typescript back end C# and Asp. Net Core.

One very large Health Insurance company in Minneapolis is using Python like crazy.
