This is to you guys who program for your job, or used to, or are going to. What college did you go to and what would be a good kind of college to go to to get a good c++ programming job?

Thanks for the help

Why are you so intent on getting a C++ programming job?

Choosing the source of your education based on a specific intent to use a specific language that may or may not be widely used 10 or even 5 years from now is probably unsafe. I'd stick to general computer science and learn how to program, not just in C++.

Also, you might change your mind about wanting to get a C++ programming job.

its good to program in c++, but u should learn concepts not any particular language it will make ur future safe. Try to understand computer science not just program.

Ok, here's a list that you might want to learn. :-)

Ruby
Oz
Factor
Scheme
Haskell
Erlang
D

Most of these are not good languages, but at least one is. (Is Java a good language? You'll find out.)
