Discussion on: Stop telling people what are the "best" programming languages to learn

Yes, people should use what they want, but that doesn't mean it's always a good idea.

Not every language is the best choice in every case. For example JavaScript is not fast enough in some situations - that's why ffi or wasm exist.

Also using only JavaScript (or any other language) can be contraproductive in sense of developing yourself as a developer - understanding different concepts of different languages and technologies.
