good list
Good list of languages to know. Go seems to be getting a lot more attention. I know someone that was just hired and the whole team is starting to learn Go right now. I like the idea od Groovy as well. Which of these languages to all of you want to focus on learning this year?

Client Side Only?
Interesting how this implies everything is client side now. Where is all the data coming from that these client languages are manipulating?

Amazing how much the definition of a programmer/analyst has changed since I started my career in 1985. Back in those days, you weren't defined by what language you happened to be using. If you were a programmer/developer, it meant you could program in any language. I took course in school called Comparitive Languages, focused on the elements every programming language needs to deal with. Seriously, is it really that hard to program a Do While loop in any language syntax?

"Back in those days, you weren't defined by what language you happened to be using. If you were a programmer/developer, it meant you could program in any language"

@TerryB: I think this still holds true. Languages and their individual syntax hold little value as compared to the knowledge of general programming constructs and algorithms. Given how intelligent compilers are getting and how easily code is available online, remembering the actual syntax is often unncesary.

Re: Client Side Only?
@Tzubair: true that. Someday compilers would be clever enough to Crack word problems.

R
I am interested in this language if that helps in data analysis. The data analysts will love this if that helps in their analysis.

Re: R
I had a friend of mine whom got into data science by learning R.  It is really good at data analysis.  A profession in demands constantly learning because once you are left behind and can't keep with the changes, it is difficult to catch up.
