As my opinion you have to focus on only one language but day by day things are changing so you can't stay on only one language. For example suppose once a time java was popular but now a days python is popular or artificial intelligence is popular.

Insted of learning many languages try to learn basic concepts which are common in all languages such as variable initialization, operators, functions etc then try to learn OOP concepts such as inheritance, polymorphism etc because in all languages almost every thing is common but the way of doing it is different soo if you know these concepts, you can easily grab different language. hope it helps .

Focus on that language which is today's need 👍👍 All the best

My opinion is to learn all the languages that I'm gonna use in the future or right now for eg. Recently I was developing websites with a club for my school(which I'm still doing) so I'll learn html javascript and css....it depends on what you are and will be doing

Master in one programming language will help you to learn other programming language easily So learn one programming language and master it. after learn any other programming language depend on your needs

Focus on a few

Try to avoid learning many languages. There are libraries and frameworks for each language. Some languages will not be on the scene after a few years, like Ruby or R, and you may not even use them for real work. Mastering in complex languages like java or c ++ takes years.

I think it's a waste of precious time to commit to learning all programming languages on this platform. Learn only what you need on as needs basis. Your learning curve is acute and exponentially heightened when you're learning a language because you have to build with it, as against learning for chewing gum knowledge. As long as you understand all the basic concepts like OOP, etc. you can export that knowledge across languages. Why learn Ruby if you ain't coding Ruby? Better be deep than broad.

Well there are many different answers on this. First, you need to chose with field of study you would like. Then chose your language. Fields of study include Web Development, Data Analysis, etc. Once you've mastered a language in let's say Web Development, then master another language in the same field. Mastering two languages would be gold. Three? Even better. I wrote another detailed explanation on this is you want to read it hear. I highly recommend it to check it out: "Guide to getting started with programming" Just don't get distracted into learning as many languages as you can, It'll do you little good in the future. For me right now, I'm into game dev, working with Unity (not really a language, but it's great help when used with C++) and C++, and I plan to stick with it in the future.

I firmly believe the more you learn, the best You'll learn all of them

Will be better if u will learn only one language with some framworks and libraries for start. When u will be building a cool projects u may start to learn other language which not harder then first

+4

My personal advice is to learn the basics of all the languages you will use but pick one you like and specialize in that. This will allow you to know other languages in case you need them but also still be able to use a language you like more often and easily

+4

just learn one everytime

It is fun and nice to learn multiple languages but can you do it properly? Learning the basics is easy, but to master one language you need year(s). So do you have time to master multiple languages? And if you do it, does it help you? Best for me is mastering one and then for fun or pleasure or i dont know, go to another. But first learn one well.

Focus on algorithms coz if you know 1000 programming languages and can’t get a logical solution to a problem, Programming syntax won’t help you. Also, each programming language is better adapted to create software solutions in a particular domain. You wish to work on websites: do html, css, javascript, php and sql. Don’t go start trying to use c to build the website. You may succeed but it will be more stressful.

In this Solo learn will help!

just learn one

In this IT industry everything changes so fast. I've chosen to acquire knowledge in one of the languages that have been around awhile. And let everything else I learn happen on a need-to-know basis.

Try to develop logic ability learning language is not big deal

At start try to catch all that is possible, it is wide knowledge, then let's learn 1-2 main language, that you like, it is deep knowledge.
