Now I can deal with it, specially with databases and other stuff although i haven't done anything yet related with GIS, i'm planning to change to C++, because the posibilities are better. Which of those two languaje do you think are more profitable in the GIS field?  If you can recommend another programming languaje, it will be welcome as well.

1. C++
At least you won't be a victim of one single framework (I mean com) approaching GIS.
You should consider seriously Python.
Excellent OOlanguage, good connections in the real world, serveral distributions, good learning curve, easy to use.
Lot of libraries extending the environment. Some python-GisRelated projects running (www.thuban.org, openev.sourceforge.org).

Now, i ask:
Yes, I know about Python. I started to learn how it works. I think it's another posibility. Do you use python? I would like to hear also from phyton users and gis developers. I don't discard to bet for Python.

Another question about python. Is it possible to develop Python program for intranet internet?
