You are going to need to learn things your entire career. It's more than just syntax to relearn though. It is libraries and the like as well.

However, it is a paid opportunity to gain experience in something else so I fail to see the problem. .net is used in industry. It isn't as if they have you using a proprietary language nobody else uses.

I can think of two concerns here that the original poster might be thinking about:
  • the person being switched has a bunch of experience in Java and is concerned about splitting beteen the two stacks on his/her resume - I think this is ok. If you want your next job to be in Java, work on side projects in Java to keep it fresh.
  • the person is new to working and wants his/her first job to be in Java - Why would it matter which language one starts with? I think this is ok too, I just understand the domain less.


  • In college I knew a few equally well. My first job that involved coding was in Java. Which wound up taking me down the path I am on today. It could have easily been a different path though. And I work with many people who used to program in something else.

    In the field of software development you are going to unlearn and learn quite a lot of things. So this isn't a surprise. If you are working on C#, you are still in a familiar territory. People have been moving into totally different programming paradigm like Object oriented to Functional. Or may be from statically typed to a dynamically typed language.
