Need some advice of studying IT


I am quite a newbie studying IT and I was studying management before. I have no knowledge of data structure, algorism, or programming except for quite limited C language.

Anyway, I am now studying Master`s programm of Informatino Engineering. In my research, I need to write a few scripts used in an experiment. With help by friends on linuxquestions, I composed most scripts I need for my experiment. I used shell scripts for most time, and python scripts written by someone was embeded in my script. PHP is also needed a little.

I think mastering programming is important for my career after graduation. But I am wondering which language I need to begin with.

I have little sparetime in my life. I need to study and do part-time job for a living. I have about one hour a day or less to learn programming.

for learning programming I would start out with C/C++. Get this book http://www.amazon.com/Starting-Out-S...9994782&sr=8-2 It is what most of the CS degrees start out using. And learn the difference between c and c++. Maybe do some linux api programming ect

Cool

C++ can be used in a variety of situations and its not like Visual basic that needs windows dependent files. Its independant and the good thing about C++, it is both a procedural language as well as an object oriented language so you can use it both ways. come to think of it, it is the only language i know that can be sued for both styles of programming.

Cheers
