    I do it professionally, but you can't judge knowledge based on that. I've known hobbyists who could code circles around just about everyone I work with.

    I mainly use Microsoft Visual C++ 6, C and C++ are pretty much the only languages I use at work, and even then C++ is pretty rare. As for what programs I write, it's usually boring stuff like account managers and number crunchers. Though writing new code doesn't happen as often as maintaining old code (yuck).

    I'm a professional VB/ASP programmer. Learning C++ to improve my resume and most probably switch jobs in the end. I'm payed well... but i'm not happy with this anymore.

    I'm an accomplished VB (7 years), ASP(2 years) and SQL(6 years) coder. Not afraid to say. But fact is, I'm not proud of the job I have. And I need that feeling.

    I'm a college student, returning for another degree (first was in Humanities, jobs aplenty there). I did get a part time contract job for the summer, debugging/fixing code in Delphi/Dataflex. Should be good experience, except I've never done anything in either. Don't know why I was hired, except the hiring individual has a daughter in the same first grade class as my son.

    Money is always a motivation of course. But not all C++ programmers get payed as well as Intranet developers. I make a little bit over $3,000 USD here in Portugal. Considering I'm still learning C++, I could never hope to get a job that meant a rise on my social rank when compared to what it is right now.

    It all as to do with... age, I guess. *shrug* Most probably I'll not even switch jobs when I'm comfortable enough with C++. But the simple fact I can get home at night and do some real programming, maybe even placing some shareware on the net or developing small apps to some round the corner customer, after spending all day working with script and interpreted languages, will certainly boost my ego somewhat and help me remember those glorious days behind a pascal filled screen doing small account packages to local shops.

    I'm a little of two. I do it both in college, and on my own.

    I've been programming long before I entered college (since sophomore year in highschool), but I've learned the most in the past 6 months or so when I started my advanced C class, then started on my own non-school project.

    It stops me from going nuts..........

    My career keeps me well paid (relatively) and I have a rough idea where I'll be in 10 years.......If it isnt hurting my life or my future....what's the problem?

    I get paid to write programs in VB, C and several web languages by a company that I intern through (5 years at this point). However I'm still in college and that's not what I'm going for (specifically). My education is more hardware based, but I get more programming assignments than you can shake a stick at.

    I don't mind coding, but I hope to get away from it someday and concentrate on design possibly.

    if there r anyone here who is professional programmer
    Currently I'm working as an engineer in embedded systems, I guess more than 90% of the time I'm busy programming. The other time is spend on hardware and boring things like writing documents.
