Actually, you will probably find out that many of the developers over here are not forcibly profesional developers.

Some of them may not even be IT pros.

But they all are passionate people if you ask me.

 

Still the level of expertise and dedication is very high.

 

Regards,
Erwan

Professional tinkerer and computing/technology enthusiast.....I personally don't work a traditional job, and refuse to. I just don't like the idea of working hard for someone while they make a profit off the sweat of my labor, especially since the pay usually sucks ass. Another thing is that I don't like being told what to do and am generally resistant to authority figures. I do, however, own several online marketing businesses. I like to run the show and work on my own schedule. Personal independence is one of my most important values.

Well, I still "lurk" here often.  I'm retired now, and keep busy.  During my professional life, I was the guy in Engineering (Software developement) that did "DevOps" way before it was called that, and learned how to talk to Marketing, Finance, Sales and Customers.  So I had a "neat" job being the "goto" person to help all those groups communicate back to R&D.  This was in the ECAD business, which has a few, but very important customers (i.e. EVERYONE who makes computer chips).  I also did the "licensing" enforcement SW.

 

I spent a lot of time here documenting the original WinBuilder and writing scripts.  I'll echo the above.  Lots of pretty smart people here.  I got involved because for a "hobby" (after working on big, complex techical systems all day), I like to tinker with Windows, and the idea of building a custom "boot" disk to troubleshoot and debug issues was interesting and "fun"! (yes, a lot of here have a warped sense of humor).

I know next to nothing about computers and have never worked in the industry. The little I've managed to learn has been via forums like the amazing reboot.pro (obviously) boot.land.net (RIP), 911cd forum (RIP), MSFN, and also theoven. There are some very talented and helpful people here and on the other sites I mentioned - often the same people frequenting each site. It's amazing how much time people have dedicated to their own little projects and/or helping others.

My starting point has always been throwing lots of time into stuff that looks interesting until I can make it work for me. Often from p!ss poor instructions, or instructions that make sense to more advanced users but make me feel like a dumbass! This bloody mindedness and stubbornness usually pays of in the end. I figure if I can make things work for me then I can try to explain them and document my woes for others to follow - hopefully with less pain than I experienced.

Anyway, I digress. In answer to the OPs original question - my job is so far removed from computing that it's not even worth mentioning - reboot is my bolt hole and escape from work - it's where I come for some sanity after dealing with sh!t at work. And it's fun messing around with boot disks.

Regards,

Misty

Engineer.

 

My role is mostly solving other people's headaches with s/w. I'm happy learning new things along the way and writing tools.

 

Example from earlier this morning, working on machine learning together with a remote team:

I am a professional software developer for a large computer company. Been doing it for 38 years. Amazing how much the industry has changed in that time.
