Hello, currently I'm enrolling in college and I'm undeclared. I read up a few posts on these forums to take a look into them but I figured I would post myself to get feedback.
My main goals are as follows:
- Have enough programming language knowledge to do the following:
-- Web Programming (Web Development using PHP, ASP, .NET, etc)
-- Software Programming (Video Games using Direct3D, OpenGL, C++, etc. Also regular application programming
As well as have abilities in Flash, Photoshop (Although this is more of a natural talent then something that can be taught).
I live in Southern California, in the LA/Hollywood area, and I would love to make a minimum of 95,000$ a year anything more then that would be great.
So my questions are, what major should I Major in in order to get to these goals? I was thinking Computer Science but from what I saw on here people say it's not the best for programming languages. Software Engineering is a possibility as well but what are your opinions?
Also, from those of you replying to this thread, if you could give me your location, degree in what major and how much money you make yearly that would also help my decision as well. I know that money shouldn't influence what I do, but I love programming so whatever makes the most money in programming would be my dream job.
