I was talking to a family friend the other day, who, it happens, is a programmer working mainly with C#.
After telling him I was getting into C++, he said that there was no future in programming and a job that used to earn him £40 an hour now earns him £20, purely due to the ammount of programmers there are around now there werent before.
Is this true? Because I would love a job in information tech. but a well paid one would be nice. :)
