Agree. Its a bit grating to read this from someone who 9 months ago was writing:
Backstory: I have no engineering background, was recently admitted to Hack Reactor, and will start in Cohort #35 in October 2015.
Honestly, the big picture isn’t super clear to me now either. I’m honestly hoping that when I finish the program, and get my first job, I’ll finally understand what software engineering even is. I know we learn a lot of cool stuff during HR, and I know we make oodles of money afterward, but I really don’t have a macro view of what technologies are for what, and how big-time software works in the real world.
