    You must be familiar with it no matter which language you actually use.


    BTW, a word of warning: There are no careers in computer software. It's a craft, a profession, not a career. Wages are roughly equal to the world's absolute minimum wage for this kind of work plus offshoring costs. True, software could be fun, but only until your 1st serious deadline. True, sometimes it's well paid, but only sometimes.

    There's a lot of talk lately about software skill shortage, and about how good careers in software and IT can be. Pay attention, however, about who's talking. Usually, it's IT industry PR people, managers, folks from academia, and such. You better disregard them, all they care about is their supply of IT cannon fodder.

    I think you should consider the design classes associated with Computer programming skills. There still is demand for professionals to work with Subject Matter experts, design the program specs, and then manage the coding project. The State of Utah Workforce Services lists this type of job as the fastest growing in Utah until 2014.

    Essential but don't stay to long. You'll also
    need a smattering of 'assembly' and a very large helping of 'winsys32 sytem services',
    'Dev' would be a good starting point. Within the second year move on to a hardcore family such as borland ++ .

    All the best.
