    You should learn the language your client prefers you to use, because they are more likely to hire you if you can fulfill their specs.

        Juniors? Wow, what a blast, I haven't seen one of those since 2020. Most common language... I guess whichever one the unemployment form is in?

    Don't bother. The tech sector is currently hemorrhaging, so unless you're way better than your peers, you're better off doing something else.
    But to answer your question, there's no such thing as just a "coding job." A job coding what?

      websites I guess, it's what is the most in demand where I live.

        You don't work on "websites", there's like six completely different specialties with different toolsets, foundational knowledge, career tracks and so on.

    you don't just learn one language unless you are planning to overspecialise and make programs that have to be 100% optimised
    If you are however learn FORTRAN

    Different problems require different skills and tools. If you aren't an expert in multiple languages you aren't a well rounded programmer.

    If you enjoy coding, you would already know a language, and you would learn whatever language is needed for whatever job you are applying to. If you are only trying to learn coding to get a job and don't actually enjoy the activity, then you should consider a different career path. We're full, and have no room for people just chasing whatever seems like good money at the time.

      You're full of people who can barely write code, anon. He might not be passionate about it, but if he can actually do it, then he is a more attractive candidate than 98 of every 100 people currently in the field.

    Job offers nowadays are about filling out ALL the specs on the job offer or lying about it, or else you're just going to get filtered. Nobody is going to train you, they expect you to show up knowing all the random bullshit they have in their company's trash tier stack. I would worry a lot more about that, and just know the common languages. Browse l*nkedin for awhile and you'll know what the common languages are. Even if you come across a job offer requiring a lang you don't know, it should be easy to pick up what's different about it if you're used to the fundamentals that are across most languages.

    you're not going to get a job for years if you're asking this question. Just focus on getting better at programming for now. Language doesn't matter.

    Ruby. It's easy to learn and there is a shortage of ruby developers. Also learn javascript because almost every job requires knowledge of the web.

    Javascript and python for the most part
    HTML/CSS as well
    and in general, probably Java, C++, C# and a new language like elixir

    So you want a starting/junior programming job?

    You MUST master the basics of programming, and be able to implement your programming knowledge using any language. That means solving problems without relying on a particular syntax. If you cannot separate programming syntax from programming concepts/algorithms, then you will need to go back and focus on the basics.

    After mastering the basics, you want a starting job. Let us look at languages that will help you launch your programming career. And no, you will not be earning $300k/year when you are just starting, but you may do so if you persevere.

    1- Java. Enormously popular, Java is everywhere, and everyone wants a Java developer. A must for Android applications.

    2- Javascript. It runs most of the internet! A must for website developers, (with CSS and HTML.)

    3- Objective C/Swift. The languages that power Apple gadgets. A must for iOS applications.

    There are more languages in high demand, but they require more experience. Master the following to expand your horizons:

    -SQL. Databases for select programmers in key positions.
    -C. Real programmers point to this language.
    -C++. For classy programmers.
    -Python. Come see the versatility inherent in the system.

    >WHAT OTHER LANGUAGES ARE IN HIGH DEMAND?
    Other than what was mentioned above: C#, Ruby, and PHP.

    >I WANT TO WORK WITH HARDWARE DIRECTLY. WHAT LANGUAGE IS CLOSEST TO THE METAL?
    Machine code. Good luck, friend.

    >WHAT HUMANLY-READABLE LANGUAGE IS CLOSEST TO THE METAL?
    Assembly. When it comes to programming, Assembly is the apex predator.

    >I WANT TO KNOW ABOUT THE LATEST NEW MODERN not-a-fad LANGUAGES!
    Take a look at Dart, Erlang, Go, Hack, Julia, Rust, and Scala.

    >THOSE LATEST not-a-fad LANGUAGES WILL GUARANTEE A JOB, RIGHT?
    No.

    >I STARTED LEARNING [language x] BUT YESTERDAY MY [friend/lecturer/uncle] SAID TO SWITCH TO [language y]. WHAT DO?
    You have already started, so stick. That other language will still be there when you are done with your current task.

      This is part 2/2. I am thinking, since we are in 2024 and things are different for webdev-notpoopy-friends, we need a third part for webdev frameworks?

    I knew C C++ Python Ruby JS/Node Go, multiple FE frameworks when i got my first job. Then also all the relevant tooling and methodologies (oop, functional, tdd, agile, scrum, kanban), also algorithms and data structures (use leetcode, its only useful for the job interview but youll need that most likely), git, packaging tools, jest, cypress, linux, kubernetes, docker, bash scripting, aws/azure, sql, nosql. It took me 1 year to get the job in 2021 knowing all of those things.

      you don't know all those you know how to google all of those. you might actually KNOW one of those.

        Somewhat true but it was googling andknowledge at a level that allowed me to finish tasks using that tech. I programmed since i was 13 i think its fair to say i knew a couple of those things decently well and was also well versed in unix and C. Btw the job i got was frontend shitter, made a couple of jumps and now im go backend dev

        and you're saying this is for... entry level anon?
