I've been programming full-time since 1998.

Database development in Sql Server, MySQL, Interbase/Firebird and Ms Access.

Most of my time is spent in ASP.NET MVC (C#).

comment Why does a computer science degree matter to a professional programmer?
On the other hand, I've seen people with degree who still fail at most of this list :)

comment As a young student aspiring to have a career as a programmer, how should I feel about open source software?
I don't think that project like mozilla are going to reduce the need for programmers. Unless your company is developping it's own web browser, which I really doubt. Also, I don't think that most people are even going to look at the source-code. Programmers care about the source code, customers don't.

comment Is taking a semester or year off from college a good idea?
Could you elaborate a little more, I don't understand what you mean by "If you go on to work for 40 more years; you are guaranteed to be missing out on 40 years of investments."

From my understanding, they could license their code using GPL and still sell it for money. That's why they say free as in free speech, not as in free beer.

I think it is all a bit of a gray area (as with most thing involving laws), which is why many are a little worried about the GPL and its viral consequences..
