Nerd bucket list

I’ve been doing pretty much straight Java programming for the last 4 years and it has not escaped my attention that Java seems to be falling out of favor in the programming community.  Anyway, I’m currently spending some time branching out and learning a few other languages/frameworks/etc.  I’ve also been going on a tour of the various nerd meetings in Phoenix, seeing what the user communities are up to and which are most vibrant.  I made a semi-prioritized list of things I want to learn, which is based on stuff I’ve read online, what’s cool locally, and personal preference, so here it is:

  1. ruby/rails
  2. iphone/objective c
  3. scala
  4. javascript (already familiar, but become a master)
  5. node.js
  6. haskell
  7. groovy/grails
  8. python
