Perhaps this is a newbie type of question and open ended at best..
I come from a systems admin/engineer background and was seeking to learn a programming. I see that .NET is popular and php, node.js. I have a bit of scripting experience and I am eager to learn.
I’ve been on plenty of freelance sites and see that most projects require a plethora of programming languages. For example, I understand that if a client is looking for a web developer (full stacked) it is expected to be able to tackle any programming language tossed your way.
However, I want to specialized in one language in particular that doesn’t require for you to learn other languages to combine then to complete a project.
I want to aquire SMB’s and potentially enterprise level projects. However, I don’t want to become a senior architect just yet. I simply want to venture into freelancing aside from my sys admin gig I already have. Yet, want to master a single language as I was told specializing is the way to go.
With respect to want the market is demanding for and you guy’s experiences, what do you guys think?
One that only requires to learn the language with no requirements to venture into other unless you would like to do so.
