I'm not one for langwars so I'll tell you this: dwtfyw. The translation of the acronym is left to the reader as an exercise of good thinking! If you want to let me know that you understood what I meant, write a tweet about it and I'll cheer on you!
As an alternative, you might want to listen to my 404answernotfound Podcast on Spotify as you might catch me saying it from time to time.

The list could continue and you should very well know that each of these topics is like Alice in Wonderland's rabbithole. As in The Matrix, once you take the truth pill, you can't go back.
If any of you readers already have experience with some other programming languages, especially Python, you might think that there are languages and libraries that are more suited for some of the jobs on this list, and I would agree with you.
Just thinking about (1) Front End Development, there are so many things that you can build that one might be tempted to say that the only limit is your imagination.
As programmers we know that there are also hard limits (memory, resources), but that shouldn't stop you from trying and achieve what you'd like to build for your well being and betterment.
You could build websites, e-commerce solutions, plugins for known CMS (like Wordpress), components to be used by other people, libraries that other fellow programmers could use in production, AMP pages for faster loading and better SEO, CSS pre-processors, HTML parsers, markup parsers, anything really!
