If you like installing things and want to learn a bit about databases -> go for BASIS

If you like to create applications and to write code -> go for ABAP

Both can be challenging and interesting and both are very wide areas. It certainly depends on available job offers as well. In the long shot you might get more money as APAB programmer.

Considering your current experience functional module will be more suitable for you.

But as you mentioned, you are technically inclined, ABAP will be a better choice as compared to BASIS, since

you know programming. Apart from that techno-functional consultants are typically ABAP and functional as ABAP and corresponding functional knowledge is complimentary for both.

But in the end, it all depends on, what you are passionate about ..just go for it.

I hope you find this helpful.
