    which way should I go


    I'm a student in the last year of study to a Computer Science University.
    I'm working as a programmer in
    a software company, with the responsability of programming the encoder/decoder
    module of a digital
    modem in the classical C language.
    My problem is that I want to know what are the IT technologies that would
    offer me a wider variety of choices
    after I finish my studies. I don't know what way should I concentrate my
    efforts. I can not learn all of the
    programming languages, all OS, aso. Till now I've studied and learned C/C++,
    VisualC++, MFC, ASM x86,
    JavaScript, Java, some Linux programming, some networking programming (TCP/IP,
    SNMP, aso). I think
    that I have a base to learn something more pragmatic.
    I would appreciate any advice that may halp me in my future career.
    Thank you,
    Gili

    Pick 2. Learn 'em well. That's good enough to start a successful career,
    IMO.

    You didn't mention SQL, but that's another good programming language to
    know. In the corporate world, most apps are database driven.

    I would think that you should make a big effort with learning the new(er)
    web technologies. Such as ASP, XML - this is the way that Microsoft are
    pushing with .NET, and as such, is probably what a lot of companies are going
    to follow as well...

    With C programming, it's been around for a long time - so job ads might ask
    for 5 or 10 years experience. Whereas the web stuff is a bit younger -
    and in 5 years time, your experience will be well-regarded...

    I agree - you should learn SQL... SQL will help you in 90% of cases -
    not many programmers will NOT have to use SQL at some stage...


    Cheers,

    Chris O'Connor...
