Deno vs NodeJS #JS

Should I learn deno or NodeJS? I'm currently confused on what I need to study right now.

It depends on what you are trying to achieve.

If you are doing something server focused then I would look at Deno, as it is likely the future for JavaScript in this area. But if you are doing JavaScript in the browser, or that will be your main focus, then I would continue to look into Node.js.

Node's not getting through the door where I work (an electric utility) but Deno might. We're open to using Node, but for external stuff only. NPM is a show-stopper.

That said, I'm learning how Node is used first.
