Joe often talks about software engineering as a subject, so I was curious to see how many people on the Bookworm forum are actually software engineers by trade. If you’re a software engineer, share what you do and how you do it!
In order to keep it civil, I feel like we should avoid explicit bashing of languages/tools and focus on the ones we really enjoy and are productive with.
BS in computer science, most of which was taught in C++. I have yet to use C++ for any anything, so in that regard it was probably not useful. On the other hand, you could argue that the general programming skills I gained are useful even to this day.
My degree was worth the money to me mostly from a social perspective. I was an anxious/nervous wreck in high school and college helped me come out of my shell and learn to speak in front of people. Shortly after college I even got my Toastmasters CC!
Elixir, followed by Kotlin. I’m generally not a fan of the JVM but Kotlin is .
Enterprise finance company writing Java (take that Joe ), Kotlin, Go, Dart, and Python. My previous job was all C# and Powershell.
I also run a very small side business which mostly ends up doing WordPress development. Funnily enough my most starred repo on GitHub is: https://github.com/Nezteb/I_Hate_WordPress (an admittedly satirical title)
