Quote: I want to program but I am an engineer…

10 01 2009

Once again, in one of the threads I follow, I read yet another engineer writing “I am only an engineer and have no formal software development education… how do I do this or that?” I read the same from engineers and scientists from time to time, that confront software development as something detached from their education, background and day-to-day practice. For me this is astonishing for two reasons:

1. How can it be that these people never got to program anything?
2. Why are they lead to believe that software engineering is so different to any other kind of engineering?

I will start a series of posts related to the topic “Software Engineering for Engineers”!
