And when you are in college, you can be part of our Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. More information at https://www.nevis.columbia.edu/reu/

- Learn how to use the shell, either from Linux or Apple's Mac OS. A quick introduction is https://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/100
- C++ is the main language used in particle physics. A popular reference is http://www.cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/
- ROOT is a software framework written in C++ which is used by particle physicists for their analyses. A compilation of resources can be found at https://root.cern.ch/getting-started
- Here is a great tutorial followed by the REU students at Nevis: https://www.nevis.columbia.edu/~seligman/root-class/

- Python is also a common language and it's a particularly good one for programming beginners. A compilation of resources is here but you can find plenty others online.
