    Most certification exams are adaptive, so make sure that you know your stuff. One certification that you should look into is your MCSE for Visual C++... but it wont necessarily get you a job, it's more of a resume add-on. Some advice... never book your exam with CDI College, their pricks.

    Thanks, for your reply, the cdi part is usefull.

    I hate dealing with prix's

    However, Fortunatly i learned borland c++ and cant force myself to learn visual c++. To hard to do gui.. I don't ever type a line of code for gui (almost) and am trying like heck to talk my son into not learning visual c++ and learning borland.

    I think i will check on borland site and see if there are any certs for borland c++.

    But any general C++ certs that will carry wait with employeers or perhaps anyone have any suggestions on getting a job in c++ or c bussiness (contracts or other) when you have self tought yourself programming.

    Why would you teach your son to learn the way that gives him less knowledge. I see, from a learning experience, almost never typing the code to be negative.

    there is that point!, however I'm looking at it from my selfish point of view that I want to work with him and teach him. But at the same time i don't want to learn vc++.

    Plus, I don't think you really need to program all the windows crap to become a good programmer this will free you up to learn other things.

    I'm quite sure when the horseless cariage came out the same arguement was used that how will the boy learn to strap a horse to a cart then.. <VERY BIG SMILE>

    Really i agree with you that you do learn more about win doz. but then again borland compiles for linux unix and other opperating systems so its nice to learn to use borlands gui editor and modify if it needs to be..

    i think, from the prespective of working in the field, not learning vc++ is a mistake.

    Those are just compilers - they aren't separate languages.

    > boy learn to strap a horse to a cart then..

    That's a terrible argument. Just because something's easier (using VB to make a GUI) doesn't necessarily make it better.

    Actually I think they are sep languages only thing they have in common is the std lib. choice is vcl or mfc..


    I'm not sure if you were saying i had a bad arguement.

    If so my point is that you don't need to learn windows programming (mfc) to do imho better gui designs. I can then right programs that work on linux or windows. So why not learn that to start with.

    not only that, but one doesnt have to program a GUI in VC. Its optional. So You can help your son with the basics of C++, and he can later work on GUI.
