People have always told me it basically boils down to:

  • cs vs se
  • algorithms vs applications
  • data structures vs architecture
  • specifics vs broad
  • theoretical research vs practical implementation

I don't really buy it. It seems to me there be one field, Software Problem Solvers. The scope and type of your problems lump you into CS/SE categories as a shorthand, but it's generally unhelpful imo.
