What languages do you need to learn to be a software engineer?
I can only think of c, c++, and java but do you need to be really really good at it?

Recommended Answers

Really depends on what you what to write in/work with.
I'm a software developer and I do nothing in C/C++ or Java.

I work with PHP, .Net, objective C (iOS) and web stuff like angularJS.
Do you need to be really good? Well, it can't hurt...

I have had a 30+ year career in software engineering, and I have programmed in at least 2 or 3 dozen different computer languages. Logic is logic, and that is the key. Differences between languages are mostly syntax. Once you have mastered one, others will not be much of a problem.
