JavaScript is the only language on the planet that you can use seamlessly on the client and server. When done, this is referred to as an isomorphic application. Any other language that claims to do this is just flat out lying and probably uses JavaScript under the hood. Emscripten used to do that actually, but they've smartly embraced WASM these days.

Speaking of WASM, things are changing with the web, but in a great way. Only problem with it is adoption for that is still in process. Eventually, a lot of languages will be isomorphic with no need for libraries. WASM is awesome.

But, if you want to start today, start with JavaScript and Node as it's still the king. You'll eventually get into WASM, but by and large you'll still need a bit of JavaScript to help run it in the browser, deal with compatibility issues, etc. So, you're going to have to learn JavaScript anyway.

As a side note, Node supports WASM too so it's worth learning regardless.

As another side note, you may see people say they don't like JS on CP. They don't know it well. Their opinion doesn't matter. It has its quirks but it's both beginner and expert friendly.
