    I’ve been learning development for a while now, and while I consider myself pretty capable I haven’t written much code in close to a year. I definitely prefer the backend side of things, and I’ve built projects in Node and Rails, usually with a Postgres db. I’ve just gotten a job in tech support, and expressed an interest in moving to the dev team eventually. I don’t even start the new job until Wednesday, but they asked me to come in tomorrow for an interview with the dev team. They plan on expanding the team relatively soon, so I don’t think I have a chance of immediately getting a dev job, I think it’s more of an introduction and to see if I’d be a candidate in the coming months (but who knows). I’m guaranteed the tech support job, so there’s very little pressure on me. Anyways, the technologies they use are VueJS, Coldfusion, Java and Postgres. I am familiar with Postgres, but I’ve never used the other three. I’m sure I could pickup VueJS pretty quickly since I understand JS quite well, and I’m certainly not intimidated by learning Java or Coldfusion (should I be?) – but obviously I have 0 experience with them. I barely even understand what Coldfusion does, and why. So any advice is more than welcome! Like are there any pitfalls about Java/Coldfusion I should know about? Any other thoughts/questions/opinions? Thanks r/webdev! – by hq overview MyDogLikesTottenham – –
