I am a mostly self taught programmer. I read books and make things in my spare time. I want to go back to school soon for a CS degree and one of the ways I stay sharp is to help with stuff that's within my ability on Stack Exchange or Reddit. For example things like "How to print the reverse of a string" or whatever.
My question is that a lot of schools have policies against letting your work be used in someone else's assignment. As far as I'm concerned helping out on internet forums is just doing a public good but are there schools that see it differently? Could that come back to bite me when I'm enrolled somewhere? Should I hold off from answering questions until I'm through the educational system? Or is it a baseless concern?
