    I wonder what language you need to know, in order to understand that chart.

    If you guys are looking to learn a programming language to freelance / work. Please checkout the job market around your area or the area you're planning on working. Some areas, like mine for example, JavaScript and PHP are in high demand, while others it's Ruby.

    If you're planning on learning for personal reasons, I recommend Ruby or Python. Both are really easy to read syntax wise, helps you learn programming patterns that can be applied to other languages, and there's tons of resources to learn from Google.

    Yup, it seems like a TON of people are looking for a Ruby or Python developer in my area. There's more work than there is available employees.
