HI i am 20 yrs old, i have no experience what so ever with programming but am very good at using windows. I've just started to learn java programming using an Ebook called Java programming for dummies. I've recently looked up on google wages for java programmers and seen wages as much as 80 to 100 grand yearly! for senior java developers. The thought of me some day earning that much money blew my mind!! So i was wondering if any one could tell me which steps to take so that i can hopefully reach that level. And if i was to become the most basic level java programmer how much should i expect to be paid?? Thank you for your help :)

    I don't mean to burst your bubble or discourage as I too enjoy Java programming, but I think that the top level programmers are proficient in more than one language. Even if you use primarily java, your employer will love the fact that you can program in C, or C#. It's just a thought. Java programming is great, but there are a lot of java programmers and I'm not certain how many jobs are solely based on java. Good luck! Be sure to check out university book stores for some great java books!
