For the love of god do not tell people to go follow the trends to learn something..... Just because x FANG company uses it does not mean that everyone else on the planet is doing it. It also just sets new devs up for absolute failure when they go to try to find a job... Its why I hate people telling new devs to go learn the MERN stack because its the new shinny toy..... When there are other languages like ruby php ect that have alot of jobs in the market that are easier to get your foot in the door..... Rather then chasing the next shiny thing to come to the market...

Hi Alex! You are right. That's why I said you should choose a tech looking for the market. If there's a lot of jobs in your area, a lot of companies using it. It could be JAVA, NODE, RUBY, whatever. Follow the tech trends close to you to ENSURE you'll get a job.
