the essence of good programming is not the coding itself, but the design, structure, and algorithms that the code represents.

almost anybody can write code, however really good coders are not so easy to find.

also, if audio software is your eventual goal then theory is important; a good grasp of maths and signal processing will be especially helpful.

^ Exactly. It's the thought and logic behind the code that makes good software... and good code helps :)

SuperCollider. Google it. Thank me later. Forget all these newbs talking about C/C++ etc. SuperCollider is THE music programming language. OO programming and uses a unit generator paradigm so application for electroacousticians is straight forward

http://supercollider.sourceforge.net

Gratz on the level up
