It seems to me to be somewhat opinionated in favor of churning out enterprise CRUD apps. Am I right, and if so, is that related to the fact that it tends to be less favored by startups and young people?
A question I posted in the /r/cscareerquestions chat thread:
” I’m learning ASP.NET because it seems like everything in NYC is either that or Java, and I’m a noob who really needs a job. But I also want to become a part of the meetup scene, ideally finding some people who want to hack on fun projects with me and making some friendships and contacts in the area. I feel like there might not be a lot of young people looking to make a fun consumer website with ASP.NET, as it doesn’t seem to be a technology designed for that type of person/project. It feels kind of awkward and opinionated in favor of enterprise CRUD apps, and it’s making the development of my simple projects a bit unpleasant.
If anyone has any info or ideas that could help me on that front I would greatly appreciate it. I’m wondering if I should even try to learn a different framework, like Django. “
