It depends for what. Maybe the answer could be php because of the bunch of webthings. But not necessarily. Programming language are a bit like musical instrument. You can take a violin, a saxophone, or a piano, it's still componing/playing music. You can basically do the same, but I guess all are not the same.
Programming is for me as an universal form of schematize. English codes english sentences.
To draw, to paint, to whatever are like programming. You create something and you can experiment this. It's like to read a book or watch a movie. You figure it out after.
But programming is special : it's mechanical, it's virtual, it's 'infinite'. Programming can do 1000000 things you could suffer to do just by 10 seconds performing it. Plus, it allows to avoid errors, like typo in cycles. We are not as perfect. When you work with an animal to dig the ground of your farm, you don't take the animal place, or the wheel. Human and programming is the same complementarity. It permits to verify, to elaborate, etc.
But it's not limited to one domain : maths, games, services, libraries, arts, operating. Programming is like a videogame, it's like a sudoku, or a adventure.
Programming is like our new flint.
Coding is extremely fun at the beginning. The you get it and you start to perform. Then creative and what happens is usually new languages. Starting from say c++, then python and so on. What you do basically is to raise both performance and efficiency to a perfect level of accuracy. This has led to code that writes code. Machine lerning deep learning, ai and the irobot outcome over time. Some intjs said to me irl that it is good that this is happening as the humanity eould merit even less. I argued against them all for 15 years, now today I think humanity has lost all of its collective humanistic ideals. This means the time for the new era is directly at hand.
What id do if i were at the age of where most of uou are is to focus on the after life and finding a way to gain a somewhat clean conscience instead of programming. Programming was done and over with when softs started to not only write softs by gain hardware around that soft to operate among human respurces. Thats a bit serious. It will come sooner to us than wed wish it would. Much much faster.
