I am currently attending college and majoring in computer science and I wanted to a get an edge over my peers by learning another language. I want to know which languages I should pick up, would a newer language or an older language work better?
The language you want to learn is a language in demand. Interestingly enough it also matters what you want to focus on. Are you trying to be a full stack guy? Maybe you like the front-end? How about big data?
