I have a quick question to ask. I am hoping to join the gaming industry (as what, I really don't know yet. Maybe as a programmer), and I am concerned as to whether or not I am on the right path. I am currently enrolled in a University and I am majoring in Computer Science and minoring in Technical Writing. My college also offers a Computer Game Development program (two year course) which upon completion grants you a gaming certificate. I am hoping to obtain it as well. Before starting college, I had no programming knowledge whatsoever, but now I am learning VB and C++ using Unix. Is this a good start? Any advice? I am truly sorry if this is a stupid question or against the forum rules, I just wish to find some peace of mind. Everyone I know tells me to not even attempt joining because it is near impossible to get hired. I wish to prove them wrong.
Thank you for your time,
