PLC / Software Engineering

  1. Sep 26, 2011 #1
    Hello,

    I'm a newly graduated engineer and planning on travelling for 12 months before settling into the real world. I have 12 months to develop my skills in programming languages C++ or C#, I only have basic knowledge of C from playing with PLC software / hardware etc.

    My question is is there a dominant programming language out there used in industry, or does it vary from company to company? As I don't want to spend a long period of time learning something I may find out dated etc?

    Thanks.

    JAVA and C++ are the two dominant languages but there are lots of others in active use.
