So, the past couple of years I've been interested in coding and for around the past 5 months, i've been seriously trying to make it as a future career.
I have currently been accepted into university, starting October 1st doing computer science.
I am still unclear on what particular area I want to go into, with the wide range of coding jobs out there. But, I can currently make websites, and have been offering free services for around 2-3months to gain extra experience.
I am really interested and keen into getting to know Windows operation systems development... I just don't know where I would start, what language, or anything?
if somebody knows anything about this department that would be amazing to point me in the right direction so I could review the requirements and see if it is something that would still interest me.
Thanks in advance.
Can somebody point me in the right direction? Watch

If you're looking to go onto Windows development then C# is a good choice. If you're looking to go into low level windows development then C++ is a good choice.

Also make sure to Download Visual Studio as your IDE.

If you're looking to go into low level windows development then C++ is a good choice.
All major operating systems (Windows, OS X and Linux)
Most AAA titles - the Unreal engine uses C++
A lot of console games
Most interpreted language's VMs
Web browsers - such as Chrome
Any performance critical software
When you first create an operating system your first task is usually to create a simple C compiler, then a more powerful C compiler then a C++ compiler. C/C++ is pretty much the foundation medium-level language of modern computing!Last edited by Murtou; 02-08-2016 at 00:53.

I've edited my comment to remove that ambiguity
