Default Programming Jobs

I was wondering does anyone know any good programming language to learn to get a job without a College degree? I am not expecting a high paying job but maybe a below average entry level position. I heard C++ is out dated and it wont help you get a job. Any help would be appreciated.

Default Re: Programming Jobs

In terms of paid work where companies don't demand any formal qualifications, most of what I've seen has been web based - so in that case, having a thorough grounding in web technologies (HTML, Javascript, PHP, MySQL, AJAX etc.) would definitely be useful.

However, it really does depend on what job you want to go for, any useful languages are a bonus. C++ included. It might not often be the language of choice for most new projects, but it's still out there on a heck of a lot of old ones and in a lot of cases it certainly will help you get a job, it's far from useless!
