|So, I'm mostly a .NET and Node.js guy (with front-end experience as well). I wanted to branch into the Java ecosystem but having prior experience in Java, I was not a fan of the syntax.|
I have heard a lot about Scala and I decided to jump into that (without enough research). I got a Scala book and I'm about a 100 pages in and I must say I do like the language, its seems very interesting and productive to me thus far. However I decided to google about language usage, future and jobs.
The results weren't very motivating and now I'm doubting whether I should keep going? Are companies choosing Scala nowadays for new projects? (not talking about legacy systems)
