    Im currently a student in computer science, and I would like a career in it, although Im not sure which direction I want to go in yet, I enjoy webdesign, but I guess I will see what the future holds.

    That's 'cause most of us here are teenagers. I may be programming for fun and learning on my own right now, but once I get out of high school I will go to college (probably for a software engineer degree or computer science or whatever i decide to choose that relates to programming). After that I hope to become a professional programmer...

    Well, it goes something like that for me.

    I started out as a Network Admin who assisted with code maintenance when we had only one other developer in my office (our companies primary business is not software). When he was promoted I was bumped up to his former position though I still have some basic Admin tasks (changing server backup tapes, running cat-5 cable, installing new employees Novell client, etc.). But I'm not complaining. Versatility is a good thing! Plus I get paid more!

    Most of what I code at work is in VB (by nature of the huge beast of code that I've inheritted), which can be thoroughly boring, but I am using C++ for some of my newer projects (like a GPS Nema string decoder that plugs LAT/LONG coord's into a custom map grid).

    I'm just a beginner to programming... Programming is taught in my College and I'm only in my 2nd year of my 4-year Degree course.

    Actually I'm still wondering why this site with the name "" but there are other programming languages board on this "C Board"....


    But I'm glad I found a board full of great ppl and helpful ppl!

    I like to program for fun, at least now. Maybe later I will get a real job in it.
