New to the forum and looking for advice on a career change from 2nd / 3rd line support into a developers role. I left college in 2005 after completing a HND in computer science landed a junior role developing in Delphi although i was only taught c++ and VB in my studies. Recession hit 6 months later and the company went bust. After that i ended up out of IT up until 3 years ago when i moved within a company from an customer facing operation role into 2nd line support. Job was great to begin with learning lots of new things mainly network side and brushing up on my problem solving skills but the last year has gotten very stale. I am currently looking to leave my employers although looking at my skill set i would be destined for another support role which i don’t really fancy.
What Languages are most commonly used in the software development market today?
What skills / Languages would i require to land a junior position?
Any help would be appreciated to get me started.
