@rotespferd I spent my formative years hating it, and then when I got into legitimate enterprise-level development I realized how many problems it solves. Now I get spooked when I see people doing Dangerous Things
@level2wizard At my day-to-day work we use PHP for web projects. In contrast to that, java is heaven 😉 I mainly use it for private projects and learning some Spring Boot now.
@rotespferd Nice, I've done a couple of internal REST APIs with Spring; fan of it, but I prefer vertx
@rotespferd compared to Spring it might be overkill, but the ability to have reactive distributed applications in a large-scale system is a neat feature. If you've ever had to wrestle with a classloader as part of your app then vertx becomes more relevant :D
