This week's book giveaway is in the NodeJS forum. We're giving away four copies of Serverless Applications with Node.js and have Slobodan Stojanovic & Aleksandar Simovic on-line! See this thread for details.
The reason why C# isn't used much in Big Data is that Big Data is not that much of a Windows World. These days, most Enterprise servers are Linux machines. And though technically C# can be compiled and run on Linux, almost nobody trusts Microsoft enough to commit a major project to C#.
Many other languages can be used with confidence to produce Enterprise-grade products that can run on both Linux and Windows from the same source codebase. Languages like Java, Python, Go, C/C++ and even PHP. And quite a few apps get produced simply out of whatever language is fashionable this month. C# is no longer glamorous (not that Java is, either). Since C# doesn't offer any actual functional advantage over other languages for Big Data services, it's just very low down on the candidate list. Private open-source developers are rarely Windows fans, and corporations large enough to sponsor creation of their own Big Data apps are usually complex enough not to be pure Windows shops.
When it comes to destroying a civilization, gas chambers cannot hold a candle to echo chambers.
