yo guys! so here's the thing... i want to get into programming and am thinking about studying for 1-2 years (i don't want a bachelor). as i'm a musician and AE, and im i dont want to spend the next 5 years working in a bar, i would like to have a nicer "day job" that's also computer based, and ideally find a job that i can do without being physically present. i know there are quiet a few languages that are good and will probably stick around for a while such as C, C+, Java and Mac but i have absolutely NO CLUE where to start, and whether i should study on my own or go to an institute, and in that case, which institute? i know there are quiet a few programmers around here so any advice on how to get stated is welcome!
