Some of them do, some of them don't. Like any other job really.

But, i have noticed that you either immediately take to it or you don't. You will know within a few months, after you start, whether you like it or not.

it's hard to recommend a programing language sense it really depends on your goals and targeted users and also platforms you have under your trigger, but also your budget, but if you want a quick start to programing in a generic way and you are willing to spend some well spent money i highly recommend the lynda.com Foundations of Programming: Fundamentals with Simon Allardice
and i can assure you that once you are comfortable with one programming language transitions would be very easy.

for programming, i suggest you start with C#, C++ is kinda outdated but its super important in algorithm programming
if you want to look into app dev, then java, C# and Objective-C are the programming languages used for Android, WP7 and iOS
and most important advice is dont jump into the big stuff without learning the little stuff first

Long shot but

Has anyone ever done any programming using DirectX 10 or 11? Or Maya/Havok even?

Hows it going CB?

I started with C++ before uni and then dropped Computers cuz of lack of interest. C++ was pretty easy got straight A without any effort or interest tbh.

Unless my country's syllabus is shit (Which is a huge possibility). It was really easy. What comes under a basic course of C++ in your country?

Not sure about course but in Software Engineering degree we learn nearly everything in c++ from basics to high level programming in the first year.

Things like Sorting algorithms, vectors, STLs, Arrays, Pointers etc in the 1st year

Yeah my first year was basics, Sorting, Arrays, pointers, SQL, Stacks and queues, File handling, functions.

That's about it, Didnt have much trouble bar File handling outputs.

As i said, I just did basic C++.

Start with C and use a good reference book that covers everything with it. Most people who learn programing do everything wrong from the start because they don't know what actually happens in the machine. Actually, one needs to do basic assembler programing first but it would too much to ask from a beginner. C is a good compromise. Forget C++ for starters, it's object oriented, outdated and has got lots of stuff that you don't need at the start. You may pick up bad habits that you; d carry around all your life. Learn C properly, solve shitloads of exersices. Once your done, you can move to higher languages Java/C++/C# -> Python/Ruby in that order.

You need one procedural programing language ( C ), one declarative one ( Oracle SQL etc. ), one object oriented one (C++/Java/C#) and one functional one (Scala etc.).
You need experience in all of them to become an expert programer at some point.

You're not there yet, start with the basics and learn how a computing unit works, how a compiler works etc. Unless you don't know that you'll be programing a salad of code that looks pretty but crashes everything for "unknown" reasons. After assembler, C is the most unforgiving language eco smile Dig in Laughing
