Yes, no, maybe, probably not.

Ruby challenges both Javascript and Coffeescript by being a joy to write =
in. Node.js itself is likely to be overtaken by something else, as it=92s =
just a bit clunky.

But, really, why are you asking this question? If you are concerned =
about relevancy of learning a language down the road, you are entirely =
missing the point. Learn as many languages as you can, including old =
ones, current ones, and new ones. Learn all the different approaches to =
programming languages, procedural, functional and object-oriented.

One should learn to sail in all winds.
