Hi there, I want SUGGESTION, can anybody please tell me which another Programming language should i start practising . Right now i'm a Java developer , and i am an intermediate in Java, so which new Programming language will be good so that i can grasp easily. Which one will be good out of these Ruby,Scala,Groovy,Python,Clojure or Perl
My Knowlegde in Java is ie. i have worked on , Core Java, JSP, Servlet, Struts 1.3 , Hibernate 3.0
Why not COBOL or FORTRAN? There are a lot of programs written in those languages and knowing them would probably make you very marketable. (This goes back to Bear's query as to what your objective is in learning another language.)
I wanted to ask is , which one of the above Programming language will give weight to my resume, ie. which one is more popular in the current market and wihich one will be a great hit in the feature . What about RUBY or GROOVY
A presenter at a recent Java Symposium said that we should learn one new language every year.
Any smart person would answer your question with a question, as the others here have. I agree with them that you need to describe what you are after. You said "add more weight to resume". That all depends. If you want a resume that says you'd be a good candidate to try and figure out all the obfuscated PERL code that some other developer left behind, then learn PERL.
Anyway, you should learn Ruby. It's what you want. It's what every white boy off the lake wants. It has a fairly wide code base and vibrant community. More importantly, it is different enough from Java that you will learn a lot about how languages are designed. This will make you a better Java programmer.

There is no any really good books on Flex. I read OReilly Learning Flex 3 Jun 2008 for knowing core. And then I will continue with this book. But one experienced developer said me that the main knowledge I would gain only from my own experience.
