Software Engineer vs Developer | Should I call myself an engineer?
Aug 20th, 2021 by rootedconcepts
One of the more common questions I get is "what's the difference between software engineer and software developer?" Well, here's the answer! We'll discuss what engineering is first, then dive into the specifics that set apart a software engineer from a developer, and we'll even discuss how software architecture fits into the mix. For good measure, we'll have to touch on Agile and DevOps, but we'll mostly stick to software engineering as defined by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and how the software development lifecycle relates to all of this. We've got lots to cover to explain the difference!
