    Yes, December is a way out, but has anyone been looking into this at all?

    Part of me has that foul, EA taste in my mouth but with what I've seen so far, and it's StarWars, I remain hopeful.
     
    Also, for the people interested, what route you going? PC or console?

    I do agree, something like Python, or even some of the *.js libraries are much easier to learn than C++ or C#.(Dynamic languages ftw.. most of the time) Regardless of what route you want to take, make sure you're writing good code.
    Anyone with a book and 30 minutes of working through the "Hello World" exercise can go off from there and write a 500 line application that does something "neat" but the moment someone looks at the code, makes them want to barf.
     
    As you learn to code and practice through languages, also look into reading/finding articles on creating "clean code" (There's actually a book titled Clean Code). Writing clean code early on keeps you in a place where if you have an online portfolio for companies to look at when you apply, show that you just don't throw thousands of lines of code into one file and go "LOOK WHAT I CAN DO!" Showing that you understand how the different pieces of the coding puzzle fit together into creating an application that under the sheets is readable to anyone else coming in to look at it the first  time, often gets you a job. (and yeah, knowing what you're doing too)
     
    The "standard" is that it takes one year to be sufficient in one language with practice and upkeep, and from my experience that's about right. I work in multiple languages from VB6 to Node.js and even Python. Am I an expert in all of them? No, not at all, but I know enough to be sufficient and get my work done.
     
    Also, if you get stuck, GOOGLE it. Googling an issue or simply needing to gain knowledge is a lot quicker than asking a colleague for one reason: It's already been asked multiple times on many sites and it's most likely been answered.(My personal go to after googling has been stackoverflow.com)
     
    Lastly, if you find your answer, don't just copy/paste it in. Learn what the code is doing, play around with it a little bit so you understand it. (this goes back to the second line and in case you get code reviewed and another developer asks "so what does this do?")

    A couple of my friends have been into FanDuel semi-seriously for a month now. They're winning, but swore to stop once their lose their initial buy in.
