Learning C# as a Front end developer
I'm definitely aiming to be a front end web developer, however, I would like to learn a lower level language such as C#. What are your opinions on this?

If you want to learn C#, I would say ... "go and learn it."
I've always been of the opinion that there is no such thing as "useless" learning. I learn everything I can. So, if you have the time, and it won't interfere with your primary endeavour... learning other languages can only benefit you down the road.
Keep Coding! :)

Even if you're doing "front-end" work, you're usually going to have to work with "back-end" code at some point. Where I work, even the "responsive web developers" (our front-end people) have to write scripts that make database calls and perform business logic stuff. We use Classic ASP, C#, Java, and Php fairly often. Out of the four, I'd recommend C# anyway. It's a useful language. Not as pretty as Ruby (my opinion), but in demand for sure.
