Hi everyone!

I'm three weeks into the software engineering program at Flatiron School and just posted my first blog.
I'm excited to be more involved in the engineering community here on Dev and to read lots of interesting articles :)

Happy coding!

Software engineering seemed like a big monster to me at the start of my education so I decided to focus on web instead. What's one of the things you like about it?

Hi Grinny! I agree it can be very daunting but I really am enjoying back end so far! Web is great too but maybe you could give it a try and you'll see it isn't so bad :)

Well, from the perspective of career there is a lot of well paid jobs around the world for all levels of knowledge. On a personal basis I love the ability to understand both software and hardware - the latter is more for CE than SE though - and the flexibility to switch from one industry to another without too much effort.

There's a lot of work to do in order to become a good SE and basically you'll never stop studying new stuff but that's the beauty of it, isn't it? :)
