Which is more useful: VBA and SQL or Java?

<t>C# would be my top pick for beginner. They have reasonably coherent generics, linq, simple multithreading. Syntax is very C++ like. IDE is great. The only bad thing is that wall street firms just hate C# on your resume. Only VB.NET is worse.The same goes for C++ vs Java. Wall street pays more for...

is a 2 year non-compete common?

<t>QuoteOriginally posted by: DominicConnorWe're both being facetious here, but you're casting the dice if you think that you can prove that your strategy is in no way similar to a court, and even so it is expensive. TU160 is also right that they may go after your next employer, though there exist t...
