I'd say that the C Family is the way to go, because many programs are written in it, as well as PHP. You get Standalone Development and Web Development. Its a double-wammy.

If that were an accurate reason, 25 years ago Fortran would have been the way to go.  You should be aware of what is going on presently, but also be able to work with future technologies.

*points out hes only 14*

What was the way to go 25 years ago? I asumed it was really was fortran.
I'd personally do as Joe suggests

You might be right about that, Joe.

Fortran and Pascal were really common....  C was a bit of a baby.  ;)

I was told by an older friend that if you want to make lots of money, do Cobal(?).
And like a fool I believed myself, and thought I was somebody else...

As far as I know, work with Cobal is rather hard to find.  It's not very common these days.  But yeah -- I'd imagine there'd be a shortage of Cobol programmers.

Still, though.  At this moment, .NET is the future--it seriously is.

Maybe it's because old fogies are sticking to old ways and it's rare to find a programmer stuck in the past?  :)

.NET is the future.

That's how it's looking now.
lol that's what makes .NET so sexy. right now i have to use .NET because it's free and it owns VB6

and it has no dllhell :). and maybe it doesnt have memory leaks(according to MS it uses a Garbage Collector or something). and also what i found really interesting is that Delphi 8(or 2005) is now .NET . /me searches for torrents

also for non .NET languages, Pascal is the way to go because it owns C++(according to the top 10 reasons why pascal is better than C++)

.NET may be the future or whatever, but it certainly is lame

C and assembly for life. Fuck .NET.

I agree, c0n.  However, you're going to get a lot more money, recognition and success from .NET than you are going to get by pecking away at C and ASM until late at night.

Mangix.  I agree.  STFU already.  Stop acting smart, or at least just go away.

Yes, fuck making a ton of money and having a good job.

I'm sorry, but I'll take learning a lame framework such as .NET if it'll pay 6 figures a year...

I'd bet that you're currently bloated like a water ballon on a hot summer's day.

That analogy doesn't even make sense.  Why would a water balloon be especially bloated on a hot summer's day? For your sake, I hope there wasn't too much logic testing on your LSAT.
