  • Overview of software/IT industry
  • Knowledge about roles in software companies.
  • Glimpse of responsibilities in software roles.
  • Challenges in software job market.

The course is an introduction to the complexity waiting for a beginner in the software industry. No certifications or silver bullets exist to a long and fulfilling software career. Instead, the course provides a brief overview of the industry and processes from an experienced engineer's perspective.

The main goal of the course is to make the aspirants aware of the big picture before they get caught up in confusing job descriptions. A prosperous career cannot be purchased or fast-tracked. It needs daily nurturing via habits and coherent knowledge.

Moving between different-sized organizations often leads to taking up multiple roles. Frequent job switching can lead to career path fragmentation. To avoid getting overwhelmed by the situation, one may choose to be aware of the bigger picture upfront. The fundamentals change at a much slower pace compared to trends. Build expertise around fundamentals for a great career.

I am a programmer with an MS in Electrical Engineering and 16+ years of experience in the software industry. I have held roles of principal engineer across multiple organizations, building products that serve billions. I have designed and implemented software solutions for Digital Cinema Distribution, Distributed Systems, Embedded Systems, Map Making, Insurance, Email Servers, and Data acquisition systems for a problem in the Astrophysics domain (master's thesis). The course(s) will help you in answering the following questions that dictate your priorities in life, WHY are you pursuing your current profession? How long do you WANT to pursue the current profession/job? How long do you HAVE to pursue the current profession/job? How long will your current profession/job RESPECT your contribution in exchange for rewards? Remaining relevant for decades in any industry is not just hard but, in many cases, impossible. However, accepting this fact can help you plan a peaceful retired life. There are many more variables in the equation of your peace of mind; start identifying them in these few minutes of assignments. I find peace in exploring the connection between the "How" and "Why" of any technical problem. Over the years, I have realized that research is a lifestyle and engineering is an attitude. The intent of all courses will be practical implementation and a long-term career perspective.
