computer programmer information wanted
So i have been thinking seriously for a while now about becoming a programmer. Im a jr. in high school and my options are still pretty open. so i just have a few questions,
1. In your opinion, what are some of the best colleges to learn the art at?
2. I am already learning the basics of c and c++, will this really help me at all?
3. what languages should i learn that are needed in most decent jobs?
To really start out, i hardly know the basics, but i am really confident that this is what i want to do. So can anyone help me out here?
Feel free to post any other information i may find useful.
