this is my career goal, and i am pretty familiar with the kinds of courses i will need to take in college to get there. i want to get started programming now, i bought a few books on C++ and am curious if i should try to learn anything else. I'm close to getting my A+ which i know i wont need but its still good to have. any pros out there wanna throw me a bone? what languages should i familiarize myself with? should i get any more certificates besides my A+ before i start?
