My ultimate goal is to start my own company that will mainly focus on video game development. However, before that happens I'm looking to get into a computer programming job.

Context: As I am currently in high school, my first goal is to graduate. Next year I will be taking my SATs, which I hope to score a perfect 1600 on. I also have intentions on attending a college or university that provides in-depth courses that will help me grow and improve my skills. I am currently learning a coding language (Ruby) as a starting point to programming.

What colleges provide in-depth courses for computer science and programming?

My main interest is in technology and computers (specifically computer programming) and I was wondering if there are any colleges out there that are considered the best in this area. I'm willing to consider any school as long as it provides courses I can take to improve. Thanks for any input...

What is the most used coding language?

I'm interested in studying/majoring in computer programming and I want to know what most of the professionals use as their "go to" language. I've heard that C++ is a common one because of its versatility, is this true? Thanks for any feedback and help! #computer-science #technology...
