Can One Be A Web Developer And Software Engineer At The Same Time? by jerrymania(m): 9:30am On Sep 29, 2006
Guys Guys Guys can one be a web developer and a software engineer at the same time? can one be a professional at both? i'm so amazed by both that i want to be a professional at them and maybe find a way to fuse both together but i need serious advice,
Re: Can One Be A Web Developer And Software Engineer At The Same Time? by Nobody: 8:52pm On Sep 29, 2006
Yes you can do both.

Software engineering is about Building Software using a disciplined approach, and using different methodologies i.e OOAD (OBject Oriented anallysis and design, and Requirements analysis and Engineering.
Being a Web Developer means you have the tools to implement the techniques youve learnt about in software Engineering.
It means that you now take time out to develop the architecture of your code/solution and not just rush blindly into coding.

So yes you can be good at both, they go hand in hand. Think of it this way, There are techniques for driving cars, everyone might be able to drive but your technique makes you either a good driver or a bad one. Its the same thing with Programming (The Car/Driver) and Software Engineering(The driving technique). theres a level in software engineering where you dont code anymore, you simply deal with organization of the Software system architecture, thats why Bill Gates soetimes referred to himself as "Chief Software Architect" for Microsoft.

Anything else, feel free to ask.

Definitely can be both, because thats exactly what I am. An interactive developer and a software/electronics engineer smiley
I've managed to fuse both skills (especially in the 21st century where everything is web based) because everthing is online so even when writing programs in C/C++ I'm still making calls to a database and can create a website that can access that same database. My current job is as an interactive developer but I am still engineering software things like web-based hotel booking systems, press release systems.

For example a data tracking system I designed: it had a GPRS modem, a GPS receivers, thermistor and humidity sensor on one end receiving NEMA data, temperature readings, and humidity readings. The remote system processes it on a PIC microcontroller and using AT commands to send the data (in XML) to a server. The server ran a C executable that received the packets of data (network programming) processed the XML and dropped the data in a database (using the standard MySQL C library). Then there was the client an (XHTML) website with a PHP backend that pulled the data from the database and displayed graphical representations of the data (depending on the user display format preference) and if the data were long and lat (location) it dropped it on a google map. There was some additional JS on the front end for a richer user experience. So theres a fusion for you.

You need variety of skills to survive in the computing world. To answer your question, yes. You can be both a web developer and a software engineer, you can be even more depending on the nature of your work. You will find yourself doing alot of stuff that is not directly your responsiblility but because you are a smart person, you can slove it.

Independent web engineers are independently employed proficient coders who make sites for a few customers and get paid for each task.Since they don't work for a business, they will set their freelance web developer in london own cost, pick which customer to work with, and work on however many undertakings as they need. This relies upon numerous elements like your current coding abilities, your business abilities, and the measure of time you can commit every day to developing your business.

You can do both. Web development is one of the software applications developed by a Software Engineer applying engineering principles. You can check out my videos on YouTube on how to become a successful Software Engineer: https://www.youtube.com/c/codewithfemi?sub_confirmation=1
