I know there's another thread going I'm sorry but I think my situation is different and I don't want to hijack someone's topic.
So, my question is.... should I learn java? I have experience in visual basic (I"m not that great but I've just got the basics) and am programing with the microsoft visual basic IDE or whatever it's called.
I normally do desktop application just for fun but am planning to start a carear in I.T and software development. so should I learn java? is it worth it?
yeah java is really easy, you practically learn 85% of c++ with java, except you're really limited in what you can do compared to c++. Java was actually derived from c++. If you're looking into much more advanced stuff e.g. hacks, game development, go c++; however, if you want to create simple programs like a small game, or calculators, stuff 0f that nature, go java.
I learnt java, wont recommend you do the same. there are limited options in java programming (small games or something like that, my project was an XO game in 3 levels). if you're going for career try html or C (c# and c++ aswell)
would recommend both.
If u goin to make I.T. Career go learn C++ and forget Java, like BodyByVTAK said. Thats my opinion too.
Meh. .NET is the future kid. IT industries are going rad too. They are switching to .NET and require the coder to have a solid understanding of it. I am an example. Yesterday got a job as a C# developer in a software house. Gonna earn 1000$ a month, which is quite decent as a part time job ;D
