You will need an education for either of these positions. So you best bet is to go to a local school that can give you the information such as:

What exactly is required for each job

What is the cost, school time, etc to get the required education.

What are the chances of obtaining a position after graduation,

    Beginning Programming All-In-One Desk Reference For Dummies is a good book for getting started down this path.

    Check local job posting in your area to see what employers are looking for. Is it Java, VB, C#?  As a developer, what projects do you see yourself working on or developing in the future? Business, Financial, Entertainment...Once you have a good idea then it should not be hard to start down the right path.
