Don't think in the market place yet. What's important is the programming
skills and not the language where you learned them. I know of a consultant
that has programmed in just about every language that he didn't studied on
University. So, learn how to program, and try your skill in various
languages. Python is a great first language.

steering wheels hidden about the cockpit, none of which followed the same
principles -- but you'd be able to shift gears with your car stereo. Useful
