What are the best coding languages to learn in 2021?

I’m interested in starting a career to be a software developer, but I’m not too sure with which one I should actually put my time into because I know coding always updates so you can be learning one that’s not useful anymore

    Python, but it's better either way if there's a mentor

    There are many platforms to start career such as Python, Ruby-on-rails, etc. But you need to clear out basic coding.

    Why don't you start with something simple to see how you get on.

    HTML/ CSS & Java Script.   Those are used to create Web Pages.

    The language to choose should be  based on what 

    discipline/field you will work in. Some languages are 

    preferred/better suited for web design, others for 

    hardware/robotics control, others for mobile apps, 

    so on and so forth.

    Can you learn to drive in a 15-year-old car?

    If you learn to drive in a Toyota, what if your first job requires you to drive a Honda?

    I recommend people start with Python because it's relatively easy.  However, what languages does your university teach?  I hope you aren't planning to start a career without a college degree.
