I would consider myself Journeyman with foot in Master, as I haven't yet got a masterpiece that others can point to and say that rubbish a masterpiece.

Novice!

But eventually I do hope to become a master
I think my biggest problem in becoming a master will be my motivation to complete a masterpiece.

I've been programming for about 5 months and the only games I'm completed were a guessing game with numbers and a tic-tac-toe game with no AI. Although I know I have the knowledge to create something like black jack or poker I just can't get myself to sit down and complete a project of that size. I have much to learn and am excited to see what the future holds for me in the world of programming

*Also in two years maybe sooner I will be starting my formal education in programming! :) so excited!

I think I'm somewhere between Apprentice-Journeyman, but to be honest I don't know where I am situated. I am self taught myself, yet at the same time I always looked up on the internet for sometimes trivial answers to questions I thought were complex a the time.
At present I haven't wrote any program from beginning to end, except small things like Tic-tac-toe, hang man or some text based game, but to me those don't count as something a journeyman would do.
Also, I've tackled programs that involve sockets, threading and services with not so much of a difficulty. Was never helped though, and I can understand others code with ease. So... now I don't really know! :wacko:

Let's avoid dredging up topics that have a last post from years ago. As in this one - 08 October 2009 .
