A couple of questions. 1) Is there any software for basic/entry level programming? I want to get into game developing and have ideas of my own that I'd like to pursue. Obviously the basic level stuff isn't going to cut it but it gives me a place to start from. Another dev, someone who is in the business recommended Python. Any other suggestions? 2) What does the average programmer go for in terms of salary/wage? I'm not considering programming as a career field since I'm already so close to graduating. 3) Are there special types of computers or rather, computers that are designed for the programmer in mind? Or does any work? 4) Does anyone have any experience with MS Visual Basic and the new game creator utility for the 360? How user friendly is it? Are there any caps in terms of how large a game can be? Thanks in advance.
