    I am trying to get into programming industry, I really enjoy programming and I always did well at it. The biggest problem is finding a job or a way into the industry. Most jobs want a different language to what I am strongest at (python). I have also learnt Java and visual basic. I am not sure which direction to go as so many jobs ask for c++ or c# and some Java.

    My question is which language should I be focusing on? I am currently looking for open source projects to join in with to add to my experience and CV but it is difficult to decide which one.

    I am looking at C++, C# or Java (to learn it better and remind myself how to code it).

    Personally I am not looking for web applications or anything like that, but if that opportunity came I would take it. I would love to get into the gaming industry but I hear it is almost impossible. Any job or position where my focus is programming I would be happy.

    If you like programming you can learn any language in a month and be great at it in 3 months and a pro in a year. Its all input/ data manipulation/ output. Don't be intimidated by the unknown. Go into the interview and explain with confidence that you can code in what ever they got.
