Okay. All I wanted to do is make writing web pages better, so I began to learn Java. I already use HTML/CSS and wanted to learn the next step.

I have already invested a fair amount of time learning Java. I enjoy Java. I have a very long way to go.

But when I started I never even realised that Java and Javascript were different. But so it seems, that Javascript is really the language to learn for web development.

After learning such a language, I wanted to get up to speed with JQuery, then maybe PHP. That is my kinda learning plan.

So did I make a big mistake learning Java? Or is Java where I want to be? Should I drop Java and learn Javascript instead... given my goals? Or given I have already started Java is it better to keep going with Java first?

Please help!
