Cool Any programmers out there?

What programming language(s) do you know?
Do you program for a living?

Myself, I'm a sophomore getting a BS in computer science but focusing on software engineering. Have an internship this summer doing mobile app development on android. I know Java and android, that's it lol. But I have java down damn well... If you ever need some help de-bugging I do enjoy it so pm me =D.

I program for a living. Been doing it professionally for 9 years now. The project I've been on for the past 5 years deals with test automation. We created a web based automation case tool that sits on top of any automation engine on the market. We also have our own automation engine that we've developed which is currently patent pending. Our automation engine is a "what you see" approach to test automation using computer vision (shape detection and OCR).

Languages I code in most often (in no particular order):
SQL (t-sql)
C#
VBSript
Python
Javascript

Sounds really cool! I'm not at all familiar with automation. Isn't c# syntax very similar to java? Are you in more of a start-up environment then?

The syntax is pretty much identical. They're both based on C/C++.

I work for CGI Group. It's a global IT consulting company based out of Canada. I'm part of the Software Product Group. We work with internal IP. I'm fortunate enough to be part of a project that allows me to experiment with new technologies and is highly visible.

Straight out of college. I started as a tester in telecom, rating and billing. Nothing exciting at all.

We automate pretty much any application. Client-server to thin client.

Of course I prefer thin client with no Flash or Silverlight because it allows us to use WebDriver. Best open source web-based automation tool on the market in my opinion.

Finishing sophomore year in college and I'm an Applied Computing major (little easier than Comp Science).

Posting so I can possibly bug y'all for help later.

I'm a Recruitment Consultant for the IT industry specialising in Java. I'm in London so can't be much help but you should be fine getting a job. Lots of work out there for good java devs.

John - why don't you do computer science?! Its not that hard it just requires a lot of time.
That's a shame you're in London, but I bet its awesome over there. Jobs do seem to be plentiful if you're at the top of the class. Im hoping this internship will pay off and I get hired on when I graduate in 2017. Do you guys have any tips for those of us who are in college still?

I interned in a Oracle shop while in college for a corp... and got an offer. Then offered a job from another corporation for more money before graduation. Got out of the corporate world, and now work at SDSU as Oracle apps developer/Java and Database administrator.

I'm a computer programmer. Been doing it professionally for 4 years now. Languages I know are (no particular order):
C#
C++
F#
VB6
VB.NET (6 and .net while similar can be argued as two different languages)
LINQ
Java (HATEHATEHATEHATE)
JScript (MS' bastardized version of Javascript)
T/P-SQL
PHP
XHTML/5
XML
Ruby
ASP.NET

I work in downtown Toronto for a financial software vendor. Currently programming in VB6 (ssshhhh... I know) and we're transitioning to .NET slowly.

Prior to this I worked for CancerCare Ontario developing Software for hospitals that treat cancer patients. I worked on projects that are in use by Princess Margaret Hospital, Sick Kids, Toronto General and Mount Sinai. It was a very rewarding experience.

Prior to that I was a survey developer for one of the largest market research companies in North America. I hated this job but I got it fresh outta college.

I also worked in a call center as tech support for iTunes and iPhone.
