Me: A little introduction

Let's start a second series: "Me". In this series I will tell you more about me as a developer. I'd like to start with some questions that I answer:

Who am I?
My name is Dustin. You might also (get to) know me as alopix, the nickname of my choice. I'm male, 21 years old and a Software Engineering student at the Upper Austria University of Applied Science, Campus Hagenberg. But in roughly a month I'm going to be a BSc, so beware of more projects coming up when I finally don't have to study for the final exam any more ;)

When did I start programming?
I can't really pinpoint when I first started programming but I think i was around 14 (so about 7 years ago). I only know that I started making static web sites using frames, html and pictures. Soon I found out about PHP and "don't use frames", so I started using CSS (with tables ;).

What (programming) skills do I have?
Let's start with programming, query and markup languages (and some frameworks) I can develop with:
HTML, CSS, JavaScript, jQuery, PHP, XML, XPath, XQuery, Borland Pascal, C, C++, Java, JSP, JSF, Spring, C#, XAML, ActionScript, Flex, MXML, SQL, LaTeX.

Now some languages I know but never use (I would require a book to remember the details):
Objective-C, Python, BASIC, Bourne Shell, Go, Mathematica, Microcode, PL/SQL, COM.

Of course I know more than programming languages:
Those things that you learn when studying Software Engineering (Software Project Engineering, Databases, Software Architecture, Open Source Development, Soft Skills...) and other things people need to know, but they are not relevant in a developer blog ;)

What's next?
Next is the masters degree course Mobile Computing (again in Hagenberg).

I think this is a good start, to get a first impression of me.
