Are you thinking of picking up a Programming Language?

I’ve been thinking of picking up another programming language for the new year, you know, just to keep them wits sharp about the web. Even though I know what I wanted to pick up, I decided to find out what the web has to say about it all, and I stumbled on this wonderful infographic from Udemy. Mind you, it is a little dated (from back in early 2012) but I think the information expressed in it is still relevant.

I primarily program in PHP, and in my early days have dabbled in Ruby and Ruby on Rails (RoR). I think I ended up using PHP solely when I picked up the Symfony Framework for a project to build a Facebook app back in 2007 and I stuck with it for good. Symfony was the only real RoR like framework out there at the time and it was/is amazing.

Nowadays, I mainly build WordPress themes and plugins and dabble on the side with a few personal projects using PHP/Symfony. But I think I might give Python a go just to add that notch under my belt (and because it looks like a lot of fun).

And from the non-serverside programming languages, JavaScript with Node.js is something that I’m considering heavily. More on that soon.

What languages do you work with, and why? Answer in the comments.
