I am currently taking a C/C++/Windows AppDev Course and I am starting to doubt whether it's the right thing to do. I am a career changer who has done 7 years as a marketing guy and recently got laid off. What are the job prospects for someone with no programming experience, a BS and management experience. What are salaries like, job prospects and what do people do when they're starting etc. The course I am taking is very intense and supposedly the top C++ course in the country. Someone just told me that C++ is no good I should do Oracle or a DBA course instead. What do you all think about this?
