| ||Is it better to specialize or become proficient in backend and frontend?|

|A couple months ago I started learning how to code, and started with the front-end (CSS, JS, etc). However, I've reached a point where I am not sure what I should be spending my time on -- should I try and pick up frameworks like Backbone and Node, or start learning a backend language like Python or Ruby?|
I guess a better way of framing it is, will employers not hire somebody just because they don't have experience with a specific framework, or will they hire on growth potential (the idea that you can pick it up quickly)?
