Allow me a short addition:

Today, more and more web development seems to take place in
Javascript, either for client-side browser logic, or for
server-side stuff (Node.js), usually accompanied by the
famous "framework of the week", which is the one that once
you've learned it, it will be declared obsolete and not
supported anymore.

Javascript as a language has many "interesting" things to
pay attention to, like == != ===, non-commutative + in
regards or array and object, nested calls, no regular
integers, and so on, so there is a lot to learn.

If you're interested in what I'm talking about, here are
two Javascript-related videos by Gary Bernhardt:

and:

The Birth & Death of JavaScript

And I'm _not_ saying Javascript is bad... ;-)
