Good question, maybe because it's more powerful, it fits better your
needs, it is more fun, it uses new concepts, ...
Or just out of curiosity!
Why learn yet another programming language?
If I followed this reasoning, I would still be writing my programs in
Luckily, I've learned other languages like C, C++, Python, Lua, JS,
Qml, etc, ...
An average software developer knows about, says 10 to 20 programming
languages, maybe even more depending on the definition of "language".
