I would think a business (software house?) would be best formed on existing skills, & not the other way around.

I would also practice typing in correctly English. Grammar is important.

Also, maybe back off the ellipsis a bit. I know they can be fun, but they are not a requirement.

What Languages should we learn?
Ans: English, English and English. That's enough for 1 year. :)

OK, on a serious note. You can't be expert professional in any language in 1 year. And it is difficult to get good projects if you don't have good pro. expertise or enough experience, so even I would give you advise of trying to get business with skills you have currently, and slowly build other skill sets side by side.

Took me ~5 minutes to decipher that

For software development? I'd say C#, Java, C, C++

I like that Idea. I just got laid off my last IT Tech job after 2.5 years with the company. I decided its time to make a change to something I've wanted to do since I was 9 or 10 or so, be a real programmer!

I also decided I would give myself a one year time frame but that's one year to develop skills, cert, programmers portfolio (along with my 15 years exp in IT tech) or what ever it takes to get an entry level programming job - in one year from now, or less of course if fate smiles upon me.

After landing that first job my plan is to do exactly what you said and learn, develop contacts, branch out, learn more etc. until I can start doing some free lance and eventually be self employed and some day bring on a couple other programmers to do the work while I get more clients and get fat and happy on an island somewhere with my laptop and wifi :P

It's not such a bad plan is it?
