Are you guys college students, graduate students, programmers, professors or etc??

Just curious

Hobbyists, professionals, students, professors, and everything in between.
I'm a hobbyist but intend to major in CS when I go to College. I'm a senior in high school, and have been programming since before I was a freshmen.

I'm just a hobbyist also that has been programming for about a year or so now. Hoping to be able to save up enough money to be able to get a major in CS sometime soon also.
I'm a hobbyist, not as much experience as these boys but am going to go to uni this year, hopefully a good one with a good foundation course, have to wait a week or so to find out.

A lot like zereo and LB

CS Grad, Hobbyist, I do system administration for a small business network currently for a career.
@BHXSpecter, who's a professor?
I never thought about putting who I am in my other post.

Game and Simulation Programming grad, hobbyist, and full time stay at home husband and father.
I am a school student. I took CS at school. But then I realized that school isn't sufficient. After finishing the 2-year CS course at school in 6 months, I started learning on my own.
Hobbyist. I plan to major in network security when I go to college.
I'm a CS undergraduate student and hobbyist programmer.

hobbyist who will go pro one day. and youll see this name and say wow... i used to talk to DTSCode!
@blackcoder: they really wont let u write php? is it a money issue?
No, most companies use ASP.NET. I know I applied at several web positions and they turned me down because I didn't know ASP.
Been doing management, sales and marketing for the past dozen years. studying programming on my own to get out of the current industry I am in and do something I would actually enjoy. Started with C# 2.5 years ago, now doing C++.

DTS, how old are you?...

I'm just a hobbyist and I have 2 months of experience yet I see that I am in the 80 percentile

my age isnt important. 80 percintile of what? asp? i didnt say it wasnt more of the widely used but the classics are still going strong. classics is the wrong word but i cant think of what would be better
I've lost track of how many web dev companies my college has shopped my resume around to that turned me down because I didn't know ASP.NET. I know PHP/HTML/CSS/XML and dabbled with JS but have yet to find a company that wants a programmer with those skills (even less locally). I went into a book publishing company that was local to get a web dev job and was told I had to know ASP.NET, Access, C#, and VB so I never bothered applying because I know none of them.
