Most Useful Academic Programming Language ...
I need to decide which programming lauguage to study for a Computer Information Systems degree. The following are my options:
- CIS 4304 Advanced Programming in C++
- CIS 4321 Advanced Programming in Visual Basic
- CIS 4325 Advanced Programming in COBOL
- CIS 4330 Advanced Programming in Java
I know a just a little of Java and VB, as for the others I know even less.
What I'd really like to know is which language will best
- Help me further my understanding of programming concepts
- Help my resume & earning potential
- Be of use in the real world
I'd love to hear your thoughts on this from some of you experienced programmers out there. Also, I may not get around to taking this class for a few semesters. In the event that VB is replaced with C# would your choice change?
