Hello everyone,

While I am looking for new job, I came across a contract role for over an year on GOSU. I was told its similar to java. Did a bit of internet research to find that its a language that runs on JVM and uses java as the baseline. However, my worry is this language worth picking up and deviating from java? IF any one has used it and see the potential in the job market that it seems to sustain and grow. Please advice. I will continue to learn more about it. Your suggestions will be helpful.

Deviate from Java programming language, where is the problem?
You aren't considering spending your whole career knowing only one programming language, are you?
At the end of the day, programming languages are only tools, don't tie yourself to any.

If the job suits you then go for it, you might also love Gosu language.

I'm doing Scala and Clojure programming in my current job and I can't be happier, actually I wish to continue working with functional programming languages for many years to come.

sweet, thank you. if I don't see anything coming up in the next couple of days, might as well take it up. The only pinch is, its close to 2 years contract and if I don't like it.. I might have to abruptly terminate my contract. Will try and negotiate contract term.

I agree. Here's the link:
