Googles Disastrous changes to Mobile platform

Google supported Kotlin to be it's first class citizen. In the meantime flutter was also introduced. While Google was busy in their shenanigans the mobile industry (outside of Google) was moving towards Rxjava where devs only knew a handful of methods to pretend to be Rxjava experts. Then came the dagger DI with it's immensely shitty documentation and lots of problems. And now comes flutter just to fuck with devs time. Honestly React seems more stable than whatever Google shows up with for the fact that FB doesn't keep on making disastrous changes every second to their platform and it's not hard to learn react native. But to put it all together with whatever Google comes out with, followed by the enormous amount of problems you run into, I'm honestly sick and tired of upgrading my self every second to support a mobile shitty app for less pay and all the extra hours of hardwork. Honestly, Is it worth it?

    I must be old. You said a bunch of things I never heard of.

      Do you think flutter is better than react?

      I do but that’s probably a minority opinion. I use it for side projects. I’m not a front end dev

      Azure. Nothing front end. Opinions here are only based on my side projects.

      Oh that's ok. I was asking to learn more about other technologies. So I can learn more and take an informed decision.

    You remind me my old days when I decided to move from front end to back end. I bet, I am very glad I moved on👌

      I would say start thinking of career as full stack and gradually move to back end. Good news is, language-wise it is fairly straightforward choice either java or python( you can do lot of other things too, e.g. scala, serverside scripting but let’s keep simple to start with...)
      You just need a patience to invest little time and wait little to see the fruits. But you will not repent 2-3 years down the line. Front end is really sh***y, and that space is occupied by lots of funky cool aid people who alway try every new language they hear in market without any depth or long term thoughts. It is not Google problem, it is the problem of these new jumping kids everywhere.

      I was planning for it but I don't have any expertise. Companies would ask for full stack expertise and experience which I don't have... BTW what about bigdata? Do Big data analyst makes any money?

      If you are talking about money then front end, back end, big data... everyone is making money. You just got to be in right place with right skills and at right time.

      True but who can make more matters. And one of these girls can offer more money, I can incline myself towards it.

    Well that’s your problem... don’t work for a company making shitty app for less pay.

      For Texas it ain't even close to 200k or atleast I haven't heard of any. And no you cannot compare 300k to a base salary here of 150 k or less.

      Where did you mention Texas in your post?

      OP
      Hehe well I mentioned it now. In the long run though still it doesn't seem as stable technology to me... Stability matters otherwise I'll have to keep updating my self for trivial things like displaying a list of items and data manipulation for UI, which really doesn't count much. Every big company would expect more from me and not just this.

    You know, you could just ignore these things and keep coding Java in Eclipse until flutter has matured (or not)?

      Support for eclipse was discontinued in 2013/14.
