Friendly reminder that if you're not an electrical or computer engineer, you're not qualified to use this board and need to gtfo. Don't let the door hit you in the ass.
EE MASTER RACE REPORTING
CSfags are inferior and need to be hanged. They are the cancer of this board along with gaymers. Usually they are both because "I jst want 2 code and play sum gaymez".
>implying I don't have a Ph,D, in math
stay pleb engineers
I'm a developer with a CS degree. I have a ton of respect for the EE/CE guys, but most of them are terrible at programming, unless they branch off on their own and teach themselves, or their school places more emphasis on it than is the norm.
They had to take a few programming classes at my school, including one C++ class that was known for being difficult, and most of them struggled through it. Granted, I could tell it was a hard class for someone who hasn't really done any programming before. They came to me for help with some of the assignments. I went to a pretty big school that focused mainly on engineering.
A lot of them, maybe even a majority, will end up programming, because there's more jobs in software development than in the hardware side of things. Looking at the BLS handbook, there were 83k "computer hardware engineers" working in 2012, and over 1 million "software developers." Kind of shocking actually, I knew there would be a discrepancy but nothing that substantial.
So if you go this route, I guess be prepared to potentially wind up sharing an office with a fucking idiot like me...
I actually do full stack web development. So the backend does not run on Windows. Unfortunately I have to do the programming in Windows. That's how consulting works. The client sets the rules. I'm doing govvie work right now and they are still using Windows for their workstations. You aren't allowed to deviate. Zug zug.
There's actually a big push in the government toward open source, mainly to save money. The higher-ups get giddy when they hear open source. This isn't reported on very often, probably because most people don't know the difference between proprietary and open source software and free software, or don't care. But it's a thing that everyone should be happy about, if only because they don't want their tax money going directly into certain companies' coffers.
Of course industry was doing this years ago and the government plays catchup, but at least they are making an effort now (lel.) Thank you Obama-san?

Well no shit. It's not even the focus of their degree plan, moron.
>I have [programming degree]. I have ton of respect for [not programming degree], but most of them are terrible at [programming].
Who would've fucking thunk.
>Well no shit. It's not even the focus of their degree plan, moron.
Yeah, but it's what most of them end up doing, moron.
Did you miss that part?
What hes trying to say in a nice way is that these /g/ threads where EE and CE majors jerk themselves off at how much their degree is "worth" are fucking cancer and need to stop.
No anon don't you know software isn't going anywhere and you need to major in hardware related fields? Anyone who thinks otherwise is living in a fantasy and that's why they always make these threads to prove to themselves that their degrees aren't worthless.
I'm a 30 year old NEET who uses Gentoo.
I like anime and some forms of gayming.
I have a waifu her name is Nepgear.
I will never amount to anything tryhards find worthwhile.
I don't give a fuck.
This is my home.
I'm in EE myself.
I don't care how much integral bullshit I have to so, I never want to touch a code in my life.
That's why I went with this and not CE
Electrical engineers and computer engineers have engineering degrees. 99% of the people who call themselves software engineers are just coders from community college trying to sound important.
Yoh have no idea what EE is do you.
We make INtegrated Chips like what AMD and Intel do.
Think microprocessors, not wiring.
