I realize C and C++ have been around for a long time. However...
If someone has never really programmed with these languages, which language would you suggest he start with today so that he won't be behind times, so to speak, tomorrow?
I know people still program with C. And it's still an old favorite of many people.
Only someone heavily into programming can see the direction the industry is heading. The industry will never really move away from C but can someone also tell me towards which programming languages we are moving? Are there a couple of choices? C# and java perhaps?
Any help would be appreciated.
