Doubtful, but you could get your feet wet and determine for yourself if it’s a pursuit you wish to engage in.
I personally don’t believe it’s the language that gives you cred, but the thought process you have self-defined. That’s what makes a true programmer. The language is just a vehicle. Once you master one, you can take your pick of which one to master next. They all possess traits particular to one field or another, while possessing overlapping program concepts that are common to all.
Java, as I understand it is a stricter version of C. No, I won’t go into the details because as we’ve just seen, “as I understand it” pretty much says it all. You would have to do some reading up to compare the two. It is not a cakewalk to learn either of them, so I’ve stayed in the shallow end and just scraped the surface so I can recognize the code when I see it. That’s about it.
JS/ES is what the S says, script. Run once or only when called upon by an event. We can, with the help of Node.js create standalone programs, but it’s not likely the language of choice, given that we have C and Java for that. They (the programs) are compiled and out-of-the-box executables if the runtime library is present OS’s are largely written in C, as are most browsers…
Scripts need a browser to run in the absence of Node.js. It’s a fun way to learn code since it is really forgiving. It either runs or it doesn’t. We’re never told ahead of time that the code cannot be compiled. ES really tries to do something with every instruction statement it gets.
