I frequently hear that Java is the most ideal language to use in coding interviews in particular for FAANG companies. What do you guys think? I have been working through freecodecamp curriculum and I already know some Python. (Also I took a college course in Java/ OOP ten years ago which I barely remember much from) . I am right now about to start the functional programming module on Freecodecamp and I wonder:
Should I start answering Leetcode problems in JS now then later switch to Java when I am capable of picking it up better?
Or should I start learning Java now while working my way through freecodecamp?
My goal is to just be as hireable as possible for a software role, although I tend to be more intersted in Data Engineering/ Data Science or Web Development,
Thanks for reading
