I got an invitation to Careers 2.0 for my answers on the tag.

One thing I noticed: it keeps mentioning the word 'professional'.
If there's one thing I'm not, it's a 'professional programmer'. I'm a fifteen year old hobbyist. So my question is: is Careers meant for people like me too? Or is this for professionals only?

Accepting the invite won't do any harm of course, you yourself control the visibility of the CV you create on Careers 2.0. You can keep it private and hidden if you want:
