That's true, but I think both are interesting and I'd like the opportunity to use them professionally!

I would love to work with Python, get back into React again and then do a bit of functional programming with something like Elm.

Go, Rust or Kotlin - all three are pretty modern and relevant right now that I'd love to dive in and play around
