Hi all! I'll start off with saying my goal is to become a software developer. As of now I'm getting my associates in science and then my bachelors in computer science. The only programming language I know is Visual Basic, which I learned back in high school. I'd like to learn a more field-worthy language. I've looked at c++ as well as JAVA. Don't get me wrong I understand that there is no BEST programming language and in the future I plan on learning more languages. I just want to learn a language that will help plant roots and grow as a developer.
I'm sort of at the beginner/intermediate level at the moment, so if you could also share steps or the route to take to better learn that language that would be great!
