Hi George , thanks for the tip. Already played around with that but I don't think game development will teach me the skills i need to work in the world of software development. Plus making a good game is really hard !

Doesn't have to be good. In fact most games people make (myself included) suck. It's about knowing how to do it. Another thing you can look into is developing WPF applications using C#. That will allow you to build applications that run directly on Windows. Below is a link of a video I found useful when I started my new job.

Sure thing George, I just think that game development is a very particular branch of work which normally requires a lot of people with different backgrounds. Concept art, coder, musician , 3d or 2d artist etc etc...
Therefore the scope may be a bit too wide to actually learn some areas of focus.
I just started with WPF a few days ago while working on my 1st program, so its been a valuable lesson.
Thanks for the advice !
