I'm an 18 year old obsessive programmer from New Jersey.
As a 16-year old, I've worked on professional web sites, CGI/Perl, C/C++ (including Win32API/MFC/DirectX SDK), Delphi, ASP/VbScript, and Visual Basic projects, as well as in other languages (most of which are sections on this site). I have exhausted my school's six-year computer science curriculum in less than two years and would gladly help anyone in need of assistance. Yes, even in school, work, or personal projects.
Columbia is SPECTACULAR!

I do most of my programming in PHP, with occasional dabblings in VB and Java.
I am working on learning C++ in my few moments of spare time, and would also like to learn advanced C and some Assembly stuff.
I am studying (also in my spare time) for my A+ Certification, and am currently a licensed amatuer radio operator (KC9CCX), although I don't have a rig yet so you won't hear me anywhere.
I run my own small-time webserver (Omnicron HTTPd, excellent), mail server (ArGoSoft SMTPd), FTP server (GuildFTPd), and I am working on (also in my spare time) building an IRC3 server in Java.
I started making programs at the age of 8 in QBasic 1.0
(ah...the good ol' days). 3rd grade was fun, but now I've moved on to
greater and more advanced adventures. For the past 9 years I have
progressively moved through QBasic, VisualBasic, C, C++, Borland C++
Java and more. I was the eBusiness development technician for Coca-Cola
Enterprises and also run my own website based out of Perl and MySQL. I
love volunteering and do so on multiple sites. I also enjoy fine dinners and long walks on the beach...
Sam Moses The Old Account
I am an enterprise web developer with six years of solid industry experience
on private sector and government projects.
I call myself an information developer, because I hate being
called a web designer.
Over the last several months I have been working on the single most ambitious
project of my career (so far). The project: create a completely new scripting
language for dynamic web sites that will offer developers an alternative. We
called it Shorthand. It's a basic inspired language that is similar to Vbscript
or PHP, and is exceptionally easy to learn.
