Discussion on: Which Programming Language Should I Learn First?

Agree. Python + JavaScript + SQL will cover a lot of ground. These form a good first set for anybody beginning in 2020.

What the next set for those who are pretty good with the first set should be is the tough question. Scala, Go, and Rust maybe. I probably won't need them any time soon though. Python+JS+SQL got me covered for a good while I reckon.

I am starting with Go right now but just to see what these new languages can offer to me. Maybe I will use, maybe not..but it would not hurt to learn something new. For sure Python, Javascript and SQL get you covered for a loooooong time!!
