I am a B.A. graduate from Guwahati University of Assam, India and having one year Diploma course in Computer Application. I have assist in developing a Library Management System which is running smoothly in various colleges in Assam, India. And have developed some non-commercial software for personal excellence such as Chain System Networking Growth Business Software, PG Quiz Master, Puzzle Cells, Puzzle Numbers etc. All these software was developed using VB 6.0 and MS Access.
I want to be a software programmer in software companies. I know C and C++ too but I can’t say that I am good in these two languages and these days I am learning VB 2008 also.
I know I have to increase my knowledge in some areas to become a good software programmer. But what should I learn? Is it necessary to have a computer degree? Which language and database(I know My SQL little) will be good for me for better career?
Please guide me Sir/Madam, because becoming a software programmer is my strong desire.
