Which Language To Learn?

LordStormes writes “I’ve been a Java/C++/PHP developer for about 6 years now. However, I’m seeing the jobs for these languages dry up, and Java in particular is worrisome with all the Oracle nonsense going on. I think it’s time to pick up a new language or risk my skills fading into uselessness. I’m looking to do mostly Web-based back-end stuff. I’ve contemplated Perl, Python, Ruby, Erlang, Go, and several other languages, but I’ll put it to you — what language makes the most sense now to get the jobs? I’ve deliberately omitted .NET — I have no desire to do the Microsoft languages.”
