Now, I went to Indeed and looked for a NoSQL job, guess what, they all requiter relational DB knowledge.

I think it is free to create fake jobs on Indeed, maybe you should create a couple to prove your point.
It does seem like you're a bit too tired to think straight (or even search dice straight). Get some rest, and try again when you're at the top of your game. You'll find some jobs when you search for JavaScript or one of it's runtimes/frameworks (node.js, angular.js ,etc).

So we've gone from there are zero jobs to "lol"?

Why not just admit you're wrong? Or disappear.

Most of them say "Experience in NodeJS" as well. You should read more than one line. Yes, you have to have skills to get a job.

There are hundreds of JavaScript jobs out there. I'd be concerned about taking advice about learning web programming from someone who cannot search on the internet.

In the mean while we are upgrading our IIS stuff to Win Server 2012r2.

Not a single program written in java script.

Learn either Java or .Net with C #, learn SQL.

C++ is also good to learn.

If you want to learn how to build better websites for your students learn CSS, Javscirpt, HTML. If you want a career in programming learn a real programing language and a relational database.

If you want to learn "Real Website Programming", there are three essential things you need to know:

HTML: The markup language that describes the webpage (organizes the content).

CSS: A stylesheet language that explains visual presentation of the content (color, animation, mouse-hover, etc).

JavaScript: A powerful object-oriented programming language used to apply logic to your webpages. JavaScript runs on both the backend (server) and frontend (web browser). You can use it to manipulate data, store and retrieve data from databases, and many other powerful things.

All the popular websites use all three of these technologies. All use JavaScript on the frontend (in the web browser). Many (Facebook, Netflix, Instagram, New York Times, Yahoo and many others) use JavaScript on the backend (on the server).

It will also help to be familiar with a high performance database such as Redis, MongoDB, Oracle NoSQL etc. Especially if you are looking to work in the field.

Other modern languages used by the big tech companies include Ruby, Go (used by Google for gmail, google maps, etc.), Python and Scala.

Some older technologies that are still popular include Java, PHP, and PERL. C++ will always be good to know, even though it's not that popular in web programming.

Because web programmers who develop with JSP, ASP, PHP are not real web developers, they are fake web developers... Let's just call em amateurs compared to HTML and CCS "developers".

SQL Server DBA's is yet another class of amateurs compared to people who know basics of NoSQL

ASP developers are simply old people near retirement who are to lazy to learn the "real web development tools" such as HTML5.

We do use java script in various flavors, but a scripting language does not a programmer make ! We enhance programs that run on popular browsers with java script.

To original poster
To become a software developer people go to college, that's where they learn about compilers, data structures, variables and scopes, event driven and OO programming, and then they take advanced programming classes from that point on.
That is why I am saying that one should learn real programming language, not a scripting one. Something that will give you fundamentals. Programming technologies always change, it's the ability to adopt that makes a good Software person.

Those fundamentals need to be there, otherwise one might go into graphic design with all that ccs knowledge .
