I have perhaps a dumb question. Can one reasonably expect to make a living by programming in languages such as C and C++?
I am a network admin and am tired of playing nursemaid to Microsoft problems. I am interested in programming but my only coding background was in fortran about 20 years ago.
I have an MCSE cert. but so does everyone else. I think I would like to write code, but I don't know anyone who can tell me if this is still something which the world needs.
