We talked to a lot of aspiring Software Developers online and in-person, and we come across many variations of the same question:
What should I be learning now?
We have a specific take on that, and we want to cover that today. We think new developers should learn C# and the .NET framework.
Now .NET is developed by Microsoft and is a framework that allows you to create many different types of software. It has a lot of features, and it's very broad, very robust, and very scalable.
C# is the best language to learn to break into the tech industry, and the language that sets you up for the future, because of the different types of software you can build on the platform.
That means once you learn this language, you can break-in, and then you can follow your hopes and dreams and passions by building other projects as well.
