The idea of becoming a ‘Software Engineer’ is so cool and amazing, well for me I think.
It is alluring.
What is the vision of what a software engineer does?
Does it mean working for an established big software company?
The problem I have right now for me as a middle-aged man is working on projects within a company’s mission/boundaries.
Does personal projects with your own GitHub repo matter at middle-aged?
How much of your personal projects matter?
When does your personal projects materialize into profits?
Why I Love Being a Software Engineer
I kind of understand this good feelings of working in code. It is tiring. Especially when working on some else’s project.
