Hello fellow developers,

Do you think software engineers are being paid well in Nigeria considering the stress that comes with the job?

Share your story.
What are your thoughts?

Sure, Software engineer are highest paid globally. Because their ability to solve critical problems is highly needed.

That you know a programming language does not mean you are an Engineer.

Software engineer knows the technical aspect of computer program. The logic and how every function works.

Hmmm... Interesting and yes they are highly paid globally. I’m just curious what it is like to be a software engineer in Nigeria if they are underpaid or actually getting what they deserve. so what exactly is the concept of software engineering compared to programming language?

For instance, Mechanical engineer knows the different components of the machine, and can identify and fix any problem that comes out.
He knows the technical aspect of the engine. He can repair and fix any issues.

But he's not the one that develop the engine. The scientist or the researchers in that field designed it, and can improve its efficiency.

Software engineer knows how computer program and its components works. He understood how programming language works and can fix any problem with the language.

But he's not the one that design the programming language, the scientist in programming, design and develop the programming language and can improve it.

Hope you are cleared.

Wow, that’s interesting. So what is your stack? What technology do you work with?

In our Lab, we create technologies, libraries and other softwares.
As for stack, I work on both

What language and what frameworks do you create the libraries into?

HTML5/CSS3, Javascript and C++.

Libraries are created by Team members.

Wow cool, I program in c++ and Python, most of the software I have created have c++ backend and Python frontend but I don't really know how to create libraries what step should I take to start library development

First learn to understand how framework works and you’ll have a smooth understanding of creating libraries. You can create libraries by predefining and implementing logics that can be referenced by other classes a developer might be using

In my organisation, we write source code. We don't really use frameworks, but we use development environment or code Editor

If you understand Object Programming, OOP. You can design libraries of any kind.

Mainly Javascript and C++

Makes sense. Do you consider yourself a senior or mid level or junior?

I have headed so many research projects in our lab,. And have trained other fellow engineers. I may consider myself a senior software engineer.

And have carried out, many complex projects.

I can implement oop both in py and cpp but I don't understand how I can create libraries like qt opencv
