Hi,
I've been working with ASP.net just for 3 years, and its new things(technics etc) every day. I mean how much knowledge does it generaly required to call yourself for a professional programmer? I know that it's very difficult to answer because its individually.

Hmm. Semantically speaking when one says that they are a 'Professional Programmer' all that says to me is that they are in the programming profession (e.g. they recieve a salary from a company for preforming programming related duities). So, to this end, anyone that is currently working as a programmer would be labeled as 'Professional' and, therefore, experience has nothing to do with it (outside of having secured the position in the first place).

The way that you posed your question, it seems, is that you are asking how long does it take until one can consider themselves a Mid level to Senior Programmer and, as you said in your post, it varies from developer to developer. Typically, in the US, companies are looking for a minimum of 5 years experience when they are looking for Senior level developers.

Does this answer your question a little bit?

Hi,

Thank you for your answer dparsons! Because a lot of consults I working with are calling themself for a professional programmer...and after what I've seen, they are so far from a professional programmer in my opinium. It's confusing!!

Again it all depends on what ones defintion of a "professional" is. To me your situation sounds more like lack of experience on the consultant's part then anything else.
