How long does it take to be known as a professional developer?
I mean people say it takes ar least 3-4 years to learn computer programming. I know Im only 13 and self learning but I gotta think of the future, If in one year -10days I can learn Javascript, HTML, CSS,Java and the usual other languages(C,C++,PY,KOTLIN) basically; Am I at a good pace with being a computer programming/development engineer?

How long does it take to be known as a professional developer?

Based on that, whenever someone gets their first job as a programmer is when they are considered a professional. On the other hand, it takes a very long time to become a good developer let alone a computer scientist. You also talked about how many languages you know, but in reality, they are unconnected to your actual programming skill. The better and better you get at programming the more conceptual it becomes. So try think of languages just as a tool. I by no means am a professional dev (I'm currently a student) but most of this is based on prior experience. Hope it helped!
