    I was wondering if you could help me with an issue. I currently know about web development in Javascript and I would like to start learning a new language. Which language would you recommend for me to start learning?

    Honestly - stick with Javascript, and play around with node.js. It's essentially a development framework, much like Ruby on Rails, but it's focused around Javascript. Super easy to use and quite scalable - companies like LinkedIn are using it in fact. You can stand up a web application with it in no time if you are pretty familiar with javascript.

    But, if you want to learn something new, Python or PHP seems to be a good choice.

    PHP would probably be the most beneficial. Since you already know javascript then it will make it a bit easier to learn.

    Get a good grip on js, and then if you already haven't for jQuery.
    I would recommend PHP next, and if you want to be a web designer or make themes and such, go for CSS.
    Python and Ruby are also a good choice, though honestly I don't have any experience with them.

    Learn jQuery and then learn coding in PHP and mySQL databases.

    This is the right choice or you might like to go for html5/css3. Don't just over python,vb,net, and others unless you learn these basics...

    Why do you want to learn a new language Eminenz CW? Have you considered specialising in Javascript, to the extent that you become a real expert in that?

    PHP / MYSQL is most important. All popular shopping cart, blogs & forums are based on php.

    I feel like you'd be able to do and earn more if you just focused on JS. PHP would be handy to know, but I wouldn't focus on that unless you absolutely need to.


    Stick with what you're good at. You'll probably enjoy it more and it will make things a lot easier.

    I'm not really sure what kinds of programming languages you like to focus on but I suggest trying out some of these: C++, Python, Java, HTML5, CSS, Javascript, Ruby and VB.net

    You must be very clear on what you going to do in future. If you wan to be a designer, HTML5 and CSS3 is a must. If you want to be come a programmer, you may study .net, java and SQL.

    By study .net and java, you can either specialize yourself as app developer or web developer.

    altcom I've learned some Java as part of a college course and it is an industrial strength language. Most web development that I've seen, uses PHP and MySQL. How do you feel that Java compares to PHP, when it comes to web development?

    I heard that many people nowadays are starting to learn Java and Python.
    Would love to learn programming but I lack knowledge...

    According to my opinion, ASP.NET is the best language to learn for the website development.

    Ruby on Rails is a great way to force yourself to become a full-stack developer. If you start building Rails apps, you assume responsibility for everything from defining schemas to handling model-level validation to writing the application-level (backend) logic and doing the client-side and design work. My progression to Ruby on Rails was PHP -> Python (Django) -> Ruby on Rails. I've worked with all in professional capacities so I've been around and make this recommendation with confidence.
