How many of you are actually programmers/developers?

    I'm just curious. It seems like most people here are younger. I was wondering how many of us actually work in the industry.

    Me personally...

    Java: 1 year
    JSP/Servlets/Struts: 6 months
    Oracle/MySQL/SQL Server: 6 months
    XML: 6 months
    HTML: 2 years
    CSS: 6 months
    Web Services (in C#): 3 months
    C#: 3 months
    ASP.NET: a few weeks

    I'm debating learning some of the basics to C++. :dunno:

    I don't understand how you could call yourself a developer if you use the Monopoly OS. It's more like your a Macdonalds hamburger assembly line worker.

    I don't develop for anything but Solaris/Linux while at work. I'm a Java Developer. C# is a hobby so far.

    How exactly have you been going about writing in C++ when VC++6 does not even meet the C++ standard.

    I can only see Microsoft developing solutions for their OS, not anyone else. They are the only company with access to the implementation of the OS, and the ability to change it. What you say is true, you are building toys that are heavily advertised and widely disseminated. The new toy they make for you, .net, is what you need to be learning about. Ofcourse you don't learn too much about the implementation of .net, just that it is easier and faster to build new toys.

    I have an education. I am seeing what will finally become apparent to you in about ten years from now. Maybe a few might catch on earlier than that.
