Hi!

It really depends on what you really want to do! In my case, i decided to learn .Net and Java.. (Much more .Net)..
Think about what you really want to do, because you should do that for life ;) I m happy with my decision..

Tell us what you re thinking, what is your favorite? Donīt only look at the money ;)

regards

Ben

why not just go with all and chose as as you go to see which one you really feel that your most comfortable with
I started of with graphic design and now I love java
I find when it comes to programming a bit of knowlege in all fields comes in handy on a day to day basis if you are going to specialize can be a millstone around ones neck...
good luck

Yes indeed there s a reason :) I have a friend who is a professional programmer, i asked him what should i do. I only knew that i want to build programs.. He said, what all programmers would say: "Ben, it doesnīt matter which language(C/C++, C#, Java...) you choose, you ll get the job done with every language.. Try all and choose your favorite...".

At first i tried java, but then i tried C# and stayed there ;)

When i finish learning(i know it take a lifetime) but later i ll take a look at C/C++.

I donīt know how the job-situation is where you live.. Here in Germany, programmers are wanted! :)

But if you re good in that work you do, youīll find a job! Of course, maybe you wonīt earn so damn much money like p.e. a programmer does, but hey, do you wanna work to live, or live to work??

Do what you want to do, and try to make the best with it! That s my suggestion. :)

Whatever you take, i hope you ll be happy with it, and donīt make you crazy with questions like "what would be if...."

Hope you tell us what your decision will be!

regards

Ben

A pure Oracle DBA, even a junior one just starting out, will usually make more than a coder. They also don't really have to work as hard. ;) So, if you're just looking for cash...

Both .NET and Java mean "developer" While the actual work would be different, in practice the expectations and job description are basically the same. They alternate as to which is more in demand; neither is going away soon.

Open Source isn't really a job path. You can get paid to do it, but first you'll need to know how to write source code. See above and also consider C/C++/Python.

Best advice, pick something you really like doing. If you really like it, you'll get good at it with little effort. If you are good at it, you shouldn't have trouble getting paid to do it.

Good luck.
