Pro may refer to any of the following:

1. With sports, a pro or professional is a person paid to perform the sport or with a lot of experience playing the sport. For example, most computer gamers are amateurs, but an e-athlete competing in an e-sport is considered a professional gamer.

2. Generally, a pro or professional is anyone with years of recent experience or training.


Someone who's not a professional may be called nonprofessional or a newbie.

3. When describing someone's actions, professionalism describes someone as polite and respectable. See our computer ethics page for how to interact professionally with people and other computers.
