To pack? Are you going on a trip? :icon_rolleyes:

If you want to go the practical route, select a language you're likely to use. Perl and Python are both good options. If you intend to do web programming then PHP would be a good idea, and depending on what systems you want to specialize in, one of the .NET languages could help.

If you want to push your limits as a programmer, select a language that's fundamentally different than C++ and Java, such as one of the LISP variants, Haskell, or assembly.

Hi,

C++ and JAVA it's almost the 'same type' I would stick with C++ is very potent and you can use it in .Net . A very simple but very important IMHO is JavaScript(has nothing to do with JAVA ) also you want to know SQL for working with data.

Python is easy to learn and development using it is generally much quicker than with C/C++ or Java.

You will not know only three languages. There is no way. You will end up accidentally having to write a few SQL queries, then some build scripts, editor customizations, web server configurations, XML transformations, ...........

And before you know it, you'll have learned too many languages! Time to bang your head against the wall so that you can go back down to three.

Knowing how to program is far more important than being able to write a for loop in 20 different languages.

Being able to construct a meaningful program in any language counts.

Writing "hello world" or a bunch of typical homework assignments in many languages doesn't.

"Understanding the fundamental concept is the key."

That pretty much sums up your quote.
