I have an offer in hand from Byjus. I'm still interviewing with other companies to make a better decision.
Ninjacart is ready to make an offer but they want me to take up Node js/React js development(Web/Hybrid Android) while my 6 years of experience is in Native Android Development. They're willing to train me on those technologies as my experience doesn't match. Is it worthwhile to switch to new Technologies for an experienced professional?
