Are software developers real engineers, or aren't they? What's the difference between "engineering software" and just writing code? I've been pondering questions like that since my first university software engineering class, and I've tried to learn from real, working engineers what their jobs are like. In the process, I've learned that there are many misconceptions about what engineering is all about, and that has led to many counterproductive ideas about how to build software well.
