While I am a big fan of Python, I am not so fond of the Ruby on Rails wannabe Django. If you want to really get into the web modern stack, go Node.js on the server and pick your front end flavor (angular, vue, react, aurelia...). Take it a step further and leave your sql behind for a nosql document database (mongodb, mariadb, couchdb...). Visual studio Code works great with most of the web development frameworks.

Forgot to mention, just use whatever Linux distro that interests you, but if you're not a Linux guru, stick with one of the Ubuntu variants, Debian, or Fedora because there is a lot of support out there on the web...definitely don't choose Arch Linux if you are not an expert.
