    Dont know what category I would fall under, but here is my 5 cents worth.

    Been using C++ for 3 semesters now so that boils down to approx 1.5 yrs. Nearly finnishing my third semester of C++ and I really enjoy it.

    I started it at college about 11 weeks ago, I'm about to complete the course about a month early, yes I am slapping myself on the back but I think I deserve it, There seems to be a lot of beginners on these boards but, I would say probably more than experts, sometimes it's hard annd I can't understand it but it's also rewarding, Some people on these boards are arseholes and only interested in bigging themselves up but generally people are helpful.

    Code:
    #include <iostream.h>
    
    int main(void)
    {
        cout<<"C++ is great.";
    
    return 0;
    }

    I started about two months ago, but I'm not new into programming, so I learn fast.

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    I am starting to think posting this poll may have been a bad idea. I truly only did it because I was curious to see the ratio of newbies to experts that use these forums. I don't want anybody to start comparing themselves to other people in terms of their experience and skill...I have the most fun programming when I can concentrate on a project instead of concentrating on being the best.

    Years of experience help, but doesn't make a good programmer. I have seen newbies that I liked working with, because they had the spirit and I have seen people working for years and I wonder how they made it through school... conclusion is: have fun at work and you will be good at what you do.

    Sometimes I get so worried about wanting to do well that I can't concentrate on the things I want to do.

    The Tao gave birth to machine language. Machine language gave birth to the
    assembler.

    The assembler gave birth to the compiler. Now there are ten thousand
    languages.

    Each language has its purpose, however humble. Each language expresses the
    Yin and Yang of software. Each language has its place within the Tao.

    But do not program in COBOL if you can avoid it.

    5 years in my own time, 3 1/2 years professionally. you missed out on the 3-4 years option in the poll by the way.

    I didn't think anyone was trying to better anybody else on this thread, anyway just because someone is better than you doesn't mean your not good and just because you do things differently doesn't mean your wrong, I don't try to be good I just try to learn, I think thats the best way to look at it.

    Code:
    #include <life.h>
    
    int main()
    {
        void brain;
        long knowledge;
    
        cin>>knowledge;
        brain = knowledge;
    
    return 0;
    }

    Um... So what's in Life.h? Might as well not have included it...
