First of all, sorry if my english is not the best...
Well Im new here as you probably guessed, and I would be glad if some experienced programmer, someone who works as a programmer, answers me. Im the kind of guy who passes his whole day inside his room, reading about programming, and programming... I have "programmed" for some time now, and I dont think Im a begginer... But I dont think I have the "level" of a profissional either...And thats what I wanted to ask... I know that Im not a begginer, and I know that Im not a expert either, Im somewhere in the middle... So my question, as you should already know, is "how do I know if I have what it takes to WORK as a programmer"? What do you think I should know to work as a programmer?
I really love programming, and if liking it makes me a good programmer, then theres no one better... But how do I know if my knowledge is enough to start working as a programmer?
I really like C and C++, and you know this two languages are for true developers, not the easiest... I think it would be easier to work as a vb or Java developer, but I want to be a C++ developer.... How do I know if I have what it takes to call myself a "C/C++ programmer"? Knowing all of the language features makes me a C++ programmer? What do I have to know?
