Needs advice
on
Node.js
and
Django

Which is better to learn first as a beginner? Is it true that django is going out of the trend?

I was thinking to learn nodejs but after some thoughts I moved to django and learned most of the basics. Should I learn django more deeply or else drop the django learning and start learning nodejs from scratch?

Please help.

Don't by trendy, try to learn the basics and learn for future. For beginner Go is a great start, they're having a great documentation. Once you get Go, backend development wouldn't be a problem. I'll suggest you not to use and framework or library at the beginning. Do things from scratch, it may sounds inefficient, but hey! you'll learn more than others. Afterwards you'll be also able to do application development in Go.

Laravel

Hey, I have found Laravel to be a great first web framework for me. Mainly, I would look at what you want to build, and go with the framework that will help you get there. It is not about learning a certain framework, but about building apps that help people solve problems. So you should start with a small project that helps people, and find a framework that can help you build that.

I am sure that others will disagree, but this is my opinion.

Christopher Wray, I am planning on building an educational platform that is computationally intensive and data-intensive. Would you please give some insights into what framework would be more efficient to handle this type of idea?

Thank you,

Daniel

Hey Daniel, I am sorry for not replying earlier. To be honest, I am not the best person to give you the best answer on that. Maybe Django or Rails? I have heard that Python is great for that, but I don't have more for you that way. Good luck!
