What is software engineering?

What is software engineering?

Well to me software engineering is designing, writing and testing computer programs. I think software engineers are the leaders in software development. There the ones who take an idea and turn it into reality.
Software engineers use technology to solve problems. They write software to make computers do new things or accomplish tasks more efficiently. They create applications for mobile devices, develop websites, and program software. And you can find them everywhere, from big tech firms and government agencies to start-ups and nonprofits.

How do I be a software engineer?

You first have to think about how a software engineer is suppose to think. When creating a program, one must think about every possibility. One of the biggest things software engineers learn is how to logically think through a problem and find a way to solve it. A good software engineer also understands teamwork and are good communicators. They work with other people all the time, including those who don’t come from a computer background. No matter how brilliant one is, at some point they will have to explain to someone how the product works or what the code does.
