Hey all, So I just graduated community college with an associates degree. The program is essentially a chemical technician program. I'm currently employed at an agricultural company, but the job is not very mentally stimulating. I was thinking of pursuing a continuing education program through night classes and distance ed from the same community college to pad my resume a bit and gain some additional skills. It's a programmer/analyst course which involves some SQL programming, and choosing between Java or Visual Basic. I've done a little Java before so I was leaning towards that. Is there any big advantage to learning one or the other (Java vs VisualBasic)? Also, has anyone who has worked in a laboratory environment found SQL useful when dealing with LIMS (laboratory information management systems)? Thanks.
