Which other languages than JavaScript and SQL should I learn, to store user data from my website in a SQL database?

I’m currently enrolled in the Front End Web Development track. I’m working toward a project that also require me to store user data in a SQL database. Eventually I would like to be able to code the backend too.

What language/framework should I learn for the backend stuff?

And while I’m learning the front end at the moment, is there a “shortcut” for the back end so that I can use my project that requires SQL to practice the front end?

There are several language choices for server development.

The choices include JavaScript, so you don't actually need to learn any new languages. The "Full Stack" track includes courses about using JavaScript in the server.

However, other languages are more popular for server development, so you might also consider Ruby, PHP, C#, or Python, depending on your interests.

Thanks Steven.

I think I'll have a look at the track you mentioned. Also Python sounds interesting since I already know that language.

I appreciate your help, thanks again.
