Its up to you. But let me clarify one thing Node.js is not any backend language its just a runtime environment where we can run JavaScript files consider just like JRE. Even for learning front-end react or whatever JS framework available we require Node.js knowledge. But my suggestion is don't waste your time on learning another backend tech Which is Node.js + Express or whatever, if you are really good at Java and falling love for it, until you dont have any other option to sustain in that project/organization. There is plenty of topics we can explore more on Java with respect to each versions. But If you focus on Node.Js + React / Angular or other frontend it will boost your profile as Full Stack. I can suggest you to learn Java in depth by learning frameworks, solving algorithms, participating coding competition, doing certifications etc.. If you still interested to grow your career towards Full Stack then you can consider learning Front-end frameworks. Good Luck.!

Someone may need to hear this today: a staff/senior kissing your a** doesn’t make them a high performer. Your highest performers are probably quieter and don’t seek out attention for their hard work. Make sure you still pay attention to them and recognize them for their efforts, and for f**k’s sake please be able to distinguish between a legitimate high performer and someone who’s just a kiss-a**. You should be rewarding the former, not the latter.

I went to an AD in Paris to buy Girard Perregaux Classic Laureato and they literally said they have 2 years wait for it 🤯! I’m so shocked!!! Didn’t know there were so many GP fans and more importantly that there is a supply issue with them as well! I’m from Chicago, US; so wanted to buy it in EU as no GP ADs in the US (+ cheaper by approx €1.5K)

Help!!
I've been working in IT for approximately 3.5 years (partly java). However, due to poor projects, my skill level is on par with or slightly below that of some of the talented new graduates.

All of my friends still make at least twice what I do, even after switching jobs. Additionally, the most of my team members are also losers with worse knowledge and abilities than I do.

My interest in IT is almost gone, and I can't imagine switching to management. How can I get out of this situation.
