Really depends if you even like Java. If you don't like it, you should be able to pick up another language fairly quickly. (Assuming you understand programming and can currently build things in java)My focus is on learning languages that will have job Stability over the next 5-10 years and skills that I can use for my entrepreneurial ventures.
So my purpose to learn coding is to
1. Get a stable job to provide decent lifestyle & cashflow while I work on my fast lane ventures
2.Possibly build apps/software to sell in the future
3. Maybe even start a development firm one day?
The thing that confuses me is I See dev jobs looking for people with HTML/CSS/JS and even more (php, node.js, react,angular)...
Should I just focus on the first three and then add on as I go?
If so, I'd go to Ruby/Rails. Then pick up JS later on after you have a good understanding of Ruby/Rails.
Java isn't going anywhere, it'll likely always be used for android apps.
Ruby/Rails, 100% isn't going anywhere, you'll always be able to find work.
JS is good, but personally I used it for mobile apps (react native) and React only if I want to spice up a front end with a reactive component (something that changes often, can't wait on page refresh.)
That's as much as I can give you on the advice side since I'm not really sure the extent to which you know Java. Have you built anything functional and online with it that I can physically go test?
