What does it mean to be a software developer? I usually have difficulty explaining to people what app development is. I chalked this up to jargon that I can’t simplify, but I recently learned that it was just lack of enough knowledge. A session on this very topic with Ronald and Rubashen taught me to regard software development as a sea full of fish.
The fish is all the different specializations in it. The most grasping for me personally was data science, which is a combination of business and computer sciences and well as math/statistics. I can now answer with confidence when asked “What do you do?” and “What is that?”. I am an application and mobile developer, I dabble in a little web development and cloud computing.
