What will your take when put into the situation where it’s expected from you to work in new technology ( or prog. Lang...that you are not aware of ) while Interviewed for different one.
Here is the scenario: let’s say I have 14-15 years of experience in Java.. I gave interviews for S/w engineering role in Java... I been selected for the role. Now, after joint org. They say we need you to work on “Go” Lang.. and then contribute to DevOps.. however I have no prior experience of Go and DevOps...
What should I do ? And why ?
It’s more like will you keep your expertise in Java or you are ok to shift your expertise in other technical work.. it may not be programming but let’s say DevOps/automated testing/ server configuration/AWS ...
- SpaceX / Eng plokjimnbIf you have 15yoe in Java why worry about adding another year. I'd be utterly bored of java and excited to use Go at that point. Though if it was 100% excel vba or something I'd start planning my exit.
- Amazon / Eng netscapeOGStop complaining OP. A good developer should be able to pick up any language.
Also, Go is a super easy language to pick up from Java.
- Microsoft 🐙M🐙morePicking up new languages and technologies is easy for a good engineer. It’s the concepts that matter so as long as you’re good on those you’ll find that you can figure out Go just fine
- Amazon / QA hiiS13Was it a bait and switch in the job description? If yes then you have a reason to be upset. If there was no mention of Go or DevOps in the job description you should correct this asap, if you cannot have your manager back you up, it maybe time, however short, to leave.
