re: How do you define professional developer VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Somebody who makes significant portion of their income from programming.

 

From my point of view, if you get paid you are a professional.

 

Yes. But is this all? I think it could be more. Such as professional image or ability.

 

The word "professional" kinda has a double meaning.

There's the standard definition:

(of a person) engaged in a specified activity as one's main paid occupation rather than as a pastime.

Which basically means "it's my job".

But some people also use it to quantify skill. In that case "being a professional" means "being good at it".

 

Money is not the proof of professionalism.
