Oh absolutely. I used to joke that you could convert C# to Java by replacing "string" with "String" and changing the extension.

But really, most of the C-family of languages are similar enough that you can kind of hack your way through pretty quickly, and become mostly-productive in a few weeks.

The family of Go, Java, C#, Python, Kotlin, Javascript, etc etc are all similar enough in theory that "working code" is as close as Googling the right syntax.
