Whitch other languages should i learn?
Other than c++, which coding languages could be very beneficial or appealing for programing jobs.

Lua, C#, Python, ActionScript and C are pretty common in the industry.

Should be pretty straight forward to pick up any of those after learning C++ well as they are all in the same programming paradigm.

Also consider looking at other programming paradigms such as Functional (Haskell) and Logical (Prolog) for a different perspective on programming.

Thanks you!

Considering the recent popularity of iPhone, iPod, iPad you might consider Objective C too for publishing on those platforms.

Hi all!
I believe C# is what you really need. It's really useful now.

C# if you want to enjoy the experience.

Objective C if you want to hate the world and contemplate suicide. ( It somehow managed to combine the awfulness of C with the slowness of Smalltalk, terrible language ).

On the bright side, you can do 99.9% of the coding on iOS in C++ with just a small Objective C shim, so thankfully you dont need to touch this hateful hateful language. Additionally with Unity and Monotouch you can use C# on iOS ( and Android ), but sadly there is a pricetag involved.

If you already have a solid grasp of a procedural language like C++ or Java, try a functional one like Haskell or F#, it will open your mind to knew ways of programming and frankly functional programming is leaking it's way into all other languages anyways. Granted, nobody is actually hiring for these languages so I wouldn't recommend as a primary language, but as a learning exercise, its a great one.
