Why I Love Being a Software Engineer

2023-10-15 17:01:33 00:08:53 [ • ] [Applause] Maybe it’s not so much case today but back when I was starting out there was some truth to that software engineers make a lot of money and it was part of the reason why I chose this profession I didn’t come from a wealthy background far from it so naturally I optimized for

My income and basic survival but that’s not the reason I love being a software engineer many people think this is a lateb sort of profession you know easy don’t do much work at all walk around and consume free food and drinks at the office but that’s also not true at all

This is a hard job no two days are the same there’s always some stuff that goes Haywire in the code you haven’t even touched and the deadlines can be quite brutal so if you’re looking for an easy job this one is not it I often fantasize

And by the way this is not not just me it’s a lot of the colleagues that I spoke to I often think about how I would like to be a barista or something like that instead not because it’s easier but because I work on a computer for long

Hours and often I feel disconnected from The Real World so I dream about these kinds of professions but even so I remain a software engineer why well there is a much deeper sort of advantage that you gain when you learn how to code comparing to other engineering disciplines and that’s the ability to

Create something from basically nothing unlike making a physical product all of the building blocks of software are readily available and this is highly underrated by most people and very few take advantage of it fully but once you internalize this idea it’s incredibly motivating all in itself it’s that

Moment you realize you don’t really have to wait for anyone to come and make things happen the way you want them to you can automate the out of your life and obligations with a few simple scripts you can make custom tools that fit your workflow exactly not kind of

But exactly and I’ll show you one such tool I made you can provide a lot of value to a lot of people by solving a common problem and ultimately by doing so you can even make a lot of money if you choose to it’s entirely possible to

One day start from a blank file and a few years later wake up running a very successful software company this possibility alone is why I like being a software engineer the lack of the glass sealing and the abundance of free resources to help you along the way right here

I want to show you one tool I worked on in the past week that really got me excited to make this video I’ve decided to really optimize my workflow when it comes to YouTube and take this channel to the next level and so I hired an Editor to help me out with the

Production so that I can focus more on actually finishing the apps that I’m working on and also record more Vlogs but making the switch from working alone to working with others requires more careful planning I can’t just go out record some random random shots and hope that my editor will understand what I

Was trying to say especially if I also film some code I can’t expect SN to sit down and read through the code to try and match it with what I’m saying so I came up with this tool to help us both work on the same video check this out

Here I have this exact video and at the top you have sections of the video they are also color coded which indicates different editing Styles but that’s a detail we won’t have to go over each section consists of shots and for each shot based on the part that I’m saying

The approximate duration is calculated here but most importantly each shot gets an automatically generated label like this one on the side the first letter indicates the section and the second one indicates the shot then all the shots get summed up and the calculated time stamps are shown at the top so that you

Know exactly how long each section is and because I know the approximate duration of the shot I’m not wasting the camera battery or the memory card by recording way too much for example when I go out and work out of a coffee shop I might spend 45 minutes actually coding

But I surely don’t need to record all 45 minutes of it but it doesn’t stop there when I check something off I actually saved the time stamp of when it was filmed so that when I open my tab to show the shots that I already filmed

They’re in the exact same order as the files on the memory card then all I got to do is review the shots and if they’re good I rename them with the exact shot labels that I have in my app so when I send them over to SN there is very

Little confusion about what shot goes where and he can focus on making a very smooth video instead of reading my code later I might even write a script that takes the files on my SD card and renames them automatically based on the time stamps uploads them to Dropbox and

All I have to do is select the video they’re related to this is why I love being a software engineer all right but back to where I was let’s actually do some coding and I’ll show you another example of why I love being being a software engineer but first a quick word

From our sponsor serve shark VPN a VPN service protects your privacy while you’re in a coffee shop or generally connecting to a public Wi-Fi many companies use our internet traffic to determine where we are who we are with for how long we stay there and what we

Did online and I’m not sitting here waiting for my data to be collected and sold to the highest bidder and one more thing by changing your location you can unlock geo-restricted content and this is huge but even better you can get better prices for all online bookings like airplane tickets and hotels Surf

Shark also comes with Advanced tools like antivirus alert and search to further improve your Internet Security if you use the code with Marco you can get three extra months for free so check out the link in the description all right sometimes when I’m recording my screen for the videos I really want to

Set up window in a way that it’s centered and has a 16×9 aspect ratio now sometime ago I made a window manager app and I recently added a keyboard shortcut that allows you to center a window but that that wasn’t enough for me and at this point I would like to issue a

Formal apology to my users for not releasing this version yet but as part of that change I also did some moderately dangerous refactoring and I would like to make sure that the app is stable so I’ve been testing it for some time now making sure that it has no

Memory leaks and other ugly stuff like that but back to the main topic I found myself often resizing the window to kind of make the 16×9 aspect ratio by hand but it’s always a bit tricky to get it right and then yesterday I thought it I made the window manager app itself

I can also add the keyboard shortcut for this exact thing I need and so today I’m going to be drinking my coffee and working on this feature nobody asked for it but me but hey feature let’s go so after about 45 minutes I kind of headed working but the coffee shop was

Closing so I needed to go and I have a few more things to finish up in the city so let’s get Going the main thing I want to do is actually get another mouse the mxm 3s is working great but I need one more back at home I’ve improved my desk setup recently and so my beloved wife has now started using it much more we have one set of peripherals for the desk setup

But I’ve gotten so used to the mouse that now I can’t work without it effectively so I’m just getting a second one so that I can carry it with my good s anywhere I go I also have a new mechanical keyboard that just arrived and I’m super excited

About unboxing it in one of the next videos so if you want to see that video make sure to subscribe right now I’ll be actually looking at what happened with the UI of the app I think it became much wider after I updated to Mac OS Sonoma

So I’ll be debugging what happened there and yeah breaking changes do occur even at the largest of companies and I’m looking at Che Apple but it’s all part of the job one more thing I just added is the version number to the UI as well since quite a few people asked me for

For it so I’ll be pushing this out now and you guys can let me know if it’s working on your side I have big plans moving forward with this app now that the major cleanup and refactor of the code is done I’ll be working on the new settings window in preparation for some

Awesome features to come I’m curious for those of you who are software engineers in the audience what is your main motivation to stay in this profession and while you’re thinking about that here’s a quick anecdote my manager and I were interviewing a guy for a back-end

Position at my day job and after the interview I had quite a nice impression of this person so I said I think he’s the kind of guy who reads the documentation and release notes of cloud providers and tools in his free time and my manager just responded with don’t we

All and with that bombshell I’ll leave you to it if you enjoyed this video make sure to subscribe for more content and I’ll see you in the next one

  1. pretty cool video. i work in the AAA games industry and I can say my favorite thing is that you understand how everything that you're using daily actually works, not limited to games

  2. Money. If there was less money involved, fewer people would do the job and that would bring more stress on each individual that remains. My target when I was a boy was to make enough money so I didn't have to care. And IT came out as the easiest one. Ofc, it might not sound that easy if you don't have the brains to do that. You make good money, you have a very flexible schedule, and it is family-friendly cuz you are 100% at home. And unless you work for a very sophisticated industry, no one will fire you over being mediocre. You might not like the managers or whoever you have to refactor code after, but you get up to 10 times the country's average salary for what sums as 3-4hours of actual focused work a day.

  3. I am a software engineer and a Mathematician. Currently going for my PhD in robotics. SE helps me build code and test my program whilst my math degree helps me think logically. I do not regret neither as it helps me in graduate school. I initially chose just software engineering simply because u can built something from nothing. Ultimately I switched to robotics because it’s more of my passion. Again, I do mot regret it one bit!

  4. I feel the same way about IT. I may not be on the skill level of a software engineer, but automating virtual machine build and deployment or pushing a new group policy to a mass amount of workstations always feels amazing.
