I love your journeys Michael, my mentors are always saying to learn one language first to be…

Hey Peter! Thanks for the feedback.

I’d say it entirely depends on the priority of that. As I mentioned in this article, I judge what to learn next by what can have the most impact in my career. For me, I’ve been looking at moving into a full-stack developer role so learning Elixir/Phoenix made a lot of sense.

If I had a current job as a frontend React developer, there might be more important things to focus on before jumping to a whole new language. However, this made a lot of sense for me since I’m unemployed and able to test out the waters to see what I want to do as a career.

In short, don’t get tossed to and fro with every new technology that you can learn but learn a technology that makes the most sense in your current context and goals.
