Looking for advice
I just started a career with programming. I think programming
is kinda fun and make money too. But I have a hard time to
pick an appropriate programming language which highly demand
in the current and future job market. Of course, I think I should
not learn Fortran or some old obsolete languages. For high demand job in programming, someone recommended me start
learning straightly with .NET without wasting time playing around
with other languages. Do you, as programming experienced guys,
think that starting career in programming with .NET is right track?
Thanx for your advices!
This is a question for the General Discussion board....
Since you are posting this on every freaking board here I'm going to assume that you think C, C++, and C# are good choices for a programming career. Here is my synopsis of the situation
*C++ is good
*C is good
*C# is stupid (i mean really stupid)
*.NET is a trend, but it is really neither good nor bad.
why no learn php then you can create web based solutions, everything will go this way in the future anyway..
I would suggest you first decide which branche of technology you want to work in. If you have made that decision, then you can determine which language(s) to learn. Note that .NET may be useful in branches which deal with networks and Windows technology, but it is not very useful in for example embedded systems.
Which language you choose is directly related to what you are trying to do with it. Yes, many/all of the things that Perl is used for can be done with C and C++, but who would be crazy enough to do so? As Sayeh keeps ranting, C can do anything imaginable with a computer, but it's not always the best language to use. What exactly are you wanting to do with programming?
