Hi Guys

Completely new with reaching out to coders/programmers/itguys online. I am normally an analyst guy, whom are about to get signed up for a scholarship type of deal learning proven methods in Java with a guaranteed job. Trust me, it is serious, and especially to me as I been wanting this for the past 5 years.

I would be insanely happy if anyone with a reasonable experience in going from a junior developer to working in the industry for the next 5 years to help me with some questions? If so, here they come:

1. With a good foundation in Java programming, an understanding of sql, javascript, react. What Is the possible futures here?

2. I have a personal interest in fintech, security and big data. What would be the most beneficial languages to learn for each of these?

3. A typical Java developer, am I correct? They have sporadical deadlines, and meetings, while spending most of the time looking to solve complex issues as a daily task?

4. Why will Java work for me who is new and blank on programming? I have extensive experience in management across hospitality, finance, sales, business management

Any input will be highly appreciated. If I have done anything wrong, apologise in advance and send me in the right direction please.

Thank you,

Dear Kvitebjorn

I Have a lot of experience now. But I started out as a junior dev so going to answer anyway.

1) Pretty much anything. Tech careers tend to lead you from one thing to the next to the next. Plus tech changes so quickly. When I started, very few people were into big data.

2) For Fintech and big data, Java and Python are common choices. Security is involved in everything. But it's more concepts than language driven. FInancial places tend to care about security a lot so your interests converge nicely.

3) Not everything is complex . And deadlines vary by company. Where I work, we do Scrum. We commit to two weeks of work as a team at a time.

4) Sure. There's no wrong "first language"
