What's the best programming language to learn?

Recently I've been learning Python a lot and could make some small programs but I'm also thinking of learning Javascript.

here are my questions.

1: What is the most lucrative programming between Javascript and Python? which will land me a job faster by learning the language.

2: How long does it take to learn Javascript if you know some Python.

3: Is possible to learn two programming languages at once, because I have been going back and forth learning Javascript and Python at the same time.

My opinion:

  1. The answer is relative, it will depend on the field you choose. And by the way, Python isn't really a competitor of Javascript. Most of the time, they will be great friends in web development.

  2. It depends too, but it will be certainly less time because you have been in contact with a language first.

  3. Definitely, you are the only one who can set limitations on yourself. I would recommend learning languages whose purpose could be related. For example, HTML, CSS, Javascript, etc.

We see the most jobs in PHP, Java and Ruby on Rails. We're doing some research to confirm this though.
