I am an application engineer with a German diplom university degree in computer science *) working in international projects as technical lead, developing web and Windows applications as well as web and Windows services for the .NET Framework based on Microsoft technology.
In my opinion, StackOverflow is a great platform to exchange knowlege like this and I found many tips there, which is why I am always very motivated to give back knowlege by answering questions where I can.
*) Note: According to wikipedia, the German diplom is comparable with a Bachelor's and Master's degree in one (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diplom).
