There are several common languages used for back-end programming taught here. These would include C#, Ruby, PHP, and some special extensions to Python and JavaScript.

If you're learning this for career potential, you might want to see what the typical job openings in your area are looking for. But if you just want the quickest way to create server functionality, and since you've already started JavaScript you might want to look into the "Express" extension courses for it.

Further to Steven's recommendations, the full stack javascript track is pretty good, it teaches Nodejs and Express together with a few other technologies, and Node is a very popular technology right now. If you like javascript and want to build on what you've learned, go for it - that was my way to go as well.

You may just want to look around a bit before you decide, see what other languages are out there. StackOverflow posts a yearly survey with popular languages and technologies and there's a State of JavaScript survey as well which focuses only on JS related technologies.
