Despite what stack you're developing on, at the end of the day, programming is programming. As a new dev looking to break into the industry, I'd suggest you begin focusing on JavaScript. It's such a versatile language and solid JS devs are some of the most sought after positions on the market. First start by mastering JavaScript as a language and then try to venture off into different frameworks depending on what you want to focus on. Meteor is a really cool full-stack JS framework that's very mobile friendly (for both iOS and Android).

Eloquent JavaScript by Marijn Haverbeke is a good complement TTH's JS track. http://eloquentjavascript.net/

Hope that helps, Dylan

What do You mean "JS takes 5 years to learn"? I think it's individual thing...like someone can get basic knowledge in JS in 1 month and someone else it will take much longer / shorter. jason chan do You think that after 5 years of learning JS You won't need to learn JS anymore? For me web-dev is continous learning.

Cheers!

thanks for the input
