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.

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; 01-08-2016 at 23:53.

I've edited my comment to remove that ambiguity
