hi
im in third year of my engineering and have started on my summer holidays
..........i want to know whether to learn java or .NET

hi
I am an engineering student as well , i jus did my second year exams , i dont know abt .NET but java is very helpful , i am doing java this summer. Anyways it all depends on the type of engineering u doing , if its electronic then i dont think u really need .NET but if its software then u shud learn as many languages as u can.

go with Ruby. Steve Jobs says noone uses Java, and .NET doesn't work on Macs.
Ruby is also massively hyped.

java's what i took in my cs sequence, i'm sure that's what most intro CS courses teach....that or c++, which is awesome and very easy to learn knowing java.

and steve jobs is clueless if he said no one uses java.
