How would one go about software development?
I’m fourteen. I’ve always been fascinated with programming and the like, though I’ve never actually done anything with it. I know I learned HTML/XHTML/CSS a few years back, and I’d like to think I’m pretty good with it, but I don’t think that amounts to anything, haha… I’m fairly sure that I want to be a software developer / programmer when I’m older (as nothing else would suit me better; I’m useless at everything not related to computers), and I want to know how I can start learning now rather than later. Is there any site I can look at regarding software development so I can research more on the subject? How should I begin? What languages should I start on? Can/should I even start now? Is there anything important I need to know before starting?
For later on, what are some good colleges I could go to for this (preferably in Texas)? What exactly would I be majoring in? What level of degree would I need/how many years of school? How would I go about getting a career after I’m done with school? Could I make it being entirely self-employed? What do you think the salary would be for someone just starting out in that field (immediately after college, no previous experience)? And for even later, with quite a few years of experience? I’d probably be doing something in web design, as well.
Thanks in advance!
Once I get an idea or topic into my head I have to know everything about it. xD This will be my demise.
