Currently, I'm working professionally in Pike, C++, bash, PHP, and
internal philosophy, which mostly aligns with the Unix notion of
building small tools that link together (rather than monoliths for
entire tasks). Learning and managing multiple languages isn't itself a
problem, though I do recommend learning just one at a time until you
stop considering yourself a novice (master a half-dozen languages or
so, that's a start).
