I am taking classes online, I have learned some java and visual basic and I can tell that there is still a lot for me to learn.
I am concerned that when I finish that I still will not be able to just go get a job. Is there a better way?
I know that java is popular but I have also heard that a lot of application development is being outsourced.
Should I be focusing on learning a different language or what else can I do to get into a programming career?

[...] This post answers a question posted by Josh on the quickest way to get into a computer programmer career.. [...]
I can`t get it on what did you said to it..Because I`m a self starter now as a I am only as a self studying on c#dot net...??
I answered your question in detail in this career defining post titled: \"Java, C/\'C++ or C#, Which Is Better\"
Let me know if you have any more questions and I will be glad to answer them for you!
What do you mean in the last paragraph you wrote...??Because I can`t get it on
\"Don’t learn Java, learn C#, ASP.NET and SQL Server. These languages have a lower learning curve than Java which means that you can learn it quickly and get a job more easily and it is also more relevant for today’s business environment because of the ease with which you can create web application projects or websites which now counts for the majority of the work that developers do.\"??? Can you explain it to me clearly please because that`s the flow of my I.T. career as now and it`s hasn`t exact direction for the learning development to my I.T. career because now I`m only a beginner to learn in C#...
A long time ago, there was the C/C++ programming language. It was used in creating many commercial software products in the days when windows / systems development was the only programming career available.
Then Microsoft Corp. realized that working with C/C++ required a specialized computer science background / mindset and that the C/C++ career path was not available to the majority of hobby programmers out there.
Then Visual Basic was invented to make computer programming less tedious for the average programmer and less expensive for businesses and that is when the computer programmer career path took off.
Millions of people learned Visual Basic and started coding and businesses reaped the rewards because the could bring their software project to market quickly.
Then the Internet happened to everyone and changed the game even for Microsoft. The most important question became ... \"can you program for the web?\".
Java was released and it also became popular but unfortunately, while it was a superior object oriented programming language to Visual Basic, it was somewhat tedious to learn or code with and not very suitable for web development or rapid application development just like its cousin C/C++.
Then Microsoft had another brainwave and released the .NET Framework which changed the future of programming ... here was a language that incorporates the object oriented programming capabilities of Java and C/C+ and also incorporates the Rapid Application Development environment of classic Visual Basic.
Don\'t learn Java, learn C#, ASP.NET and SQL Server. These languages have a lower learning curve than Java which means that you can learn it quickly and get a job more easily and it is also more relevant for today\'s business environment because of the ease with which you can create web application projects or websites which now counts for the majority of the work that developers do.
Best of Luck
