    Where I'm at

    since joining this site, I have taken a long look at my programming skills. I have found and made the following choices:

    1. All programs I have written are C dos-based math programs; studying to be an electrical engineer (electronic).

    2. Assembly is the only other language I consider myself somewhat descent in.

    3. Finally, started the transition from C to C++.

    4. Bought Petzold, long overdue for windows programming

    5. I am going to also learn OpenGL, PHP, Linux programming,
    any other suggestions

    Lastly, thanks to all u guys, for making this site what it is

    Learn anything you can handle, I'd say.... In addition to what you listed, try Java, ASM, DirectX, VB, etc., etc.... No language is too small - you'll find a use for all of them.

    You give an example of one your self.
    I was forced to learn VB last year.

    VB is actually widely used. Perhaps that won't always be the case, but right now, VB as one of your skills on a CV is well worth having.

    I have to agree that knowing C or C++ is a very good idea... but I think you'll find VB is almost if not more widely used... at least as a wrapper for your C programs if nothing else... people like pretty interfaces, and if you can write a kickass program in C and wrap it in VB so that the user only has to push a button to make magic happen, then why not?

    I am full time student at UC (Cinti.). I also work full time at the USPS. I am trying to get my BS in IT. I am sick of delivering the mail, been doing it for over 18 years. I want a job that I actually use my brain.
