I'm 34 years old, and decided to get an education. I started trying to teach myself programming. I did fine with HTML, but when it came to PHP or JAVA I found that I really needed more direction. So I went and got my GED, and started taking my basics at the community college. My problem is that I don't know what is the best direction to go. I want to learn the language that has the most options for employment. I also wasn't sure about my degree. Right now I am signed up for a AAS for software developer. I didn't know if that is the right direction, or should I go for the science degree and kill myself with the math?
