    Glad to hear this! Actually the more difficulty I encounter programming in C++ and the more I feel safe that many would have already given up or would’ve chosen a simpler solution.

    Great video! ..but are you sure computer programming can’t make you rich? I’ve seen some salaries on monster dot com and on londonjobs dot co dot uk that were so high I coudln’t believe it! maybe you’re talking about billionaires? By the way the jobs I found had to do with video game web development and the spring/hibernate framework.

    @Zuzanac951 those courses sound perfect.

    It is actually fun to work overtime, in my opinion. When you are developing something of your own, it tends to be a lot more fun than relying on something else and working with programs that were not of your own creation. It really depends on the person.

    since I like to work on my own, individually, and do something that has only one goal to accomplish, I made some research about computer programming and it kinda attractes me. Because basically what you’re doing is sitting at the computer writing codes, testing the proram you are creating. I selected computer science courses, math, and physics, which I dont know if its necessary to select. So please help me and inform me what I should do in order to become a successful programmer. Thank you!
