    Bro you are way ahead of your peers. |Jawdrop| |Writing|

    If you want to get into programming go into computer science, if you want to go into Information Tecnhonlogy get a degree in IT then pick a concentration in a more specific field. In the summer between your high school graduation and the start of college get the Comptia A+ certification.

    After you get the A+ Certification immediately find an internship to get experience that way when you get out of College you can show IT work experience. The A+ shows employers that you know what you are doing with general office IT tasks. Throughout college work on certifications.

    Look at these schools for Cyber Security

    Python's the big one, it's got a lot of applications within military systems and has been commonly used by Western militaries and their support architecture like NASA, but we also use LISP and Ada. I should be more specific with my description of my work... I do build control software for AUVS, but it's for behavioral limits in AIs, which is an emerging field in military robotics.

    Sometimes you want a AUV or UAV to do its business without a human operator monitoring it 24/7. I'm the girl that makes that capability possible|Android|.

    What languages are you most familiar with/use the most?

    Public Class MyLanguages{

    public static void main (string []args) {

    System.out.println ("I speak some Java but I need to brush up on it.");

    }
