I need the opinion of experienced programmers. I'm switching careers, as I found out that marketing won't cut it especially that the economy isn't doing great, and decided to quit my current job, dedicate 1 year to pursue/study "programming" in a nearby univesity. I have many choices which is confusing at the moment and want to make sure before I invest the time and money that I'm doing the right thing, so I need your assistance in telling me if the following choices I made have demand, mind you I live in California:
2. Java (or C++ is enough?)
Secondary choices (to substitute for any of the primary ones):
5. Visual Basic ?? (or I can pick it up by knowing C)
6. Visual C++ (same as C++ but for win??)
Please let me know if you have other opinions. Thanks.
P.S. I'm posting this message on other boards.
