What back-end language should I learn?

    I would go against the grain here and say that with Serverless (focusing purely on FaaS) being on the rise, the industry is moving towards the trend of "writing infrastructure, not code". When it comes to FaaS (functions as a service), the big three (AWS, Azure, GCP) support different languages, but all share JavaScript/Node at the core, with Python as a close second.

    Disclaimer: I work for a leading cloud training provider.

    But to expand on this, as a front end dev, you and I are so used to calling REST API endpoints that return JSON and we then manipulate this into the outcome we desire. If you can get on the other side of fence and control the JSON, you now control your own destiny.
