What is the Difference Between a Software Engineer and a Computer Programmer?

The terms software engineer or computer programmer may be confusing to the average computer user. Most of us associate computer programs with the generic term 'Software'. To us it may seem that the terms are interchangeable. That is not so. The role played by a software engineer is significantly different from that of a computer programmer. Before learning what the difference between a software engineer and a computer programmer is, let us see what is meant by the term software engineering and how it relates to computer programming.

Software engineering is a rigorous approach to development, maintenance and testing of software. These are engineers who must be knowledgeable about software requirements, design, development, maintenance and testing. They must be well versed with the tools and methods used for the development process as a whole. It is thus a convergence of the fields of computer science and systems engineering with a great deal of project management added for good measure. They are expected to have technical skills in addition to managerial skills.

A computer programmer on the other hand, is required to develop, test and maintain code that is to be run on the computer. He is responsible for converting the specifications provided in the software requirements definition phase into working code for the computer. Computer programmers are involved with design and maintenance of websites too. They should be proficient in analysis of programs. They are required to collaborate with manufacturers in developing new methodologies for software with evolution of hardware. Training, documentation and generation of reports are also tasks that should be handled by a computer programmer.

We can observe that the skill set required by a computer programmer is a subset of the skills expected from a software engineer. The computer programmer is a specialist in some areas covered by software engineering. A software engineer is in charge of the overall software development process and is expected to improve the reliability and maintainability of this complex process. A software engineer may have a team of computer programmers working under his supervision.

An Aircraft Detailer's Dream – No Bug Stick Wings

It seems like a thousand years ago when I started my first real business washing aircraft at age 12. It turned out to be a very astute business decision in hindsight. Still, as a 12-year old it was really hard work, and I can remember scrubbing the bugs off the leading edge and wings of small light aircraft and business jets. Then I'd have to wax them really good to help me get the new bugs off next time I washed the same aircraft.

That was then, and this is now and there may be relief on the way for future young aircraft cleaners. Let's talk, let's discuss some new future technologies in Aerospace.

There is a great video on YouTube talking about NASA wing research for modern aircraft. The title of the video is: "The Super-Efficient Future of Air Travel" and it is well worth watching. Fast forward the video to: 16:00 on the video.

This video discusses the drag, both induced drag and parasitic drag, from dead bugs and how this affects a wing's performance, which is another reason why aircraft detailers are constantly washing and waxing the wings of aircraft.

Now then, just imagine in the future specialized coatings that prevent dead bugs (smushed ones) from sticking – wouldn't that be a wonderful thing, yes, I agree totally. Wow, looking back, all I can say is; I sure wish they had such coatings back then, I'd have certainly saved myself so work, or would I have – maybe not, because if those coatings existed my aircraft washing, cleaning and detailing services may not have been needed.

Well, either way, these new technologies will be a complete game-changer for the Aircraft Detailing Industry, much like no-stick Teflon pans changed things for cooking bacon and eggs. Material Science has come a long way, and it is amazing just how much it will reshape the world we live in the future, even for those sub-sectors of our economy, things like aircraft washing and cleaning.

Sometimes I feel as if our industry doesn't stay up on all the new technologies that affect us, and yes, it is a relatively simple business sector to participate in, nevertheless a prudent operator or owner of such a business needs to stay up with the leading edge of aerospace tech to stay ahead of the competition, thus, I thought you might like to hear about this. After all, we don't want any of our workers getting carpal tunnel while scrubbing off all those obliterated and baked on bugs do we? Please consider all this and think on it.

Do You Really Need a College Degree?

My wife and I have college degrees. My daughter has a college degree. My son has a college degree and is a college professor. However, I do not think a college degree is the only option for landing a very well paying job.

Many believe in order to get a high paying job, you must have a college degree. That is simply not true and certainly not automatic. The reality is millions of Americans currently owe student loans. The numbers continue to escalate, and it generally takes a person many, many years to pay off those loans.

The Stats Are Staggering!

Here's a quote from an article I recently read:

"You've probably heard the statistics: Americans owe over $ 1.45 trillion in student loan debt, spread out among about 44 million borrowers. That's about $ 620 billion more than the total US credit card debt. In fact, the average Class of 2016 graduate has $ 37,172 in student loan debt, up six percent from last year. "

Years ago, while working for CBS radio (where my college degree meant nothing), I talked with numerous interns who were currently in college. I always asked them what their major was, and what they planned on doing after graduation. Sadly, by their answers, I was convinced most of them should have never even entered college.

The mantra, "college degree means a good, high paying job," has caused many people to acquire massive debt. And after graduation, far too many end up in a job that is not the high paying job they thought they would have. They then spend years and years trying to pay back their college loans.

There is Another Option

A few weeks ago I heard a man on the radio relate how he had no college degree, but was making a very good six figure income. He did not wear a suit and tie and sit in a cozy cubicle inside a fancy and impressive office building. He was an elevator repairman.

He explained how some people at those fancy and impressive office buildings often mistook him for the janitor, or some other non-office type of worker. It did not matter to him what anyone else thought. He shared that when he gets home each night, he doesn't stress about money, and has no college loans to pay off.

There are numerous six figure jobs that do not require a college degree. Yes, they involve training, but the cost of the training is a fraction of four year college tuition. What type of jobs?

"Network managers and IT managers employed by companies have stable, 9 to 5 jobs with good salaries, benefits, and retirement accounts. Salaries for IT managers range between $ 53,477 and $ 125,101.

Depending upon the city of residence, court reporters can earn between $ 29,995 and $ 104,000.

Salaries for construction managers range from $ 41,562 to $ 130,845.

Salaries for fire chiefs range from $ 42,096 to $ 119,250.

Air traffic controllers command large salaries, up to $ 158,966 on average.

Plumbers' salaries can soar as high as $ 103,731 and beyond, depending on specialties and training.

Radiation therapists must have a two-year associate's degree, or a certificate in radiation therapy, but they don't need a four-year college degree. Radiation therapists can earn as much as $ 116,000 a year. "

Let The High Schoolers Know!

I'm not at all against getting a college degree. It is definitely the absolute right and necessary path for some, but not for all. It's really heartbreaking to see millions carrying so much student loan debt, and still not earning the salary they thought they would because of their college degree.

God expects us to be wise about our finances. In the US, student loan debt is 1.4 trillion dollars, and credit card debt is 764 billion dollars. It would seem there is a great lack of understanding regarding money.

Other options besides college should be explained in detail to high schoolers. In addition, our youngsters really need sound biblically based information about money. I highly recommend Roger Braker's book, Poverty Vs Wealth as a good place to start.

And, if you have debt, I also highly recommend the many tools offered by Dave Ramsey, including Financial Peace University.

I've been in debt before, and thankfully, except for my mortgage, I'm debt free. Anyone in debt knows it's not freedom; it's enslaving. Learning about money and finances, and applying sound biblical principles will pay huge dividends, financially and mentally.

Content

The World Wide Web is a big resource of content. Essentially it's world of information out there. People now have easy access to information that can help solve their problems.

Online marketers have many strategies to get a web business up and running, in order to provide ready information on niche products and services. Having a blog or website is a great start to create a website business.

Content for a website comes in two ways: educational and promotional. Good websites provide content of value that can help provide the information that people are searching for. The saying that Content is King is justified when the information provides an educational value to users of the internet.

At the same time online marketers provide promotional content. The front end to a web business is to provide educational content to offer value to the website reader. A successful web business is well monetized by creating promotional offers to potential customers. Monetization allows an online marketer to promote, market and sell to customers.

Creativity

Content is king but a well-designed Copy is one that converts sales. Good copywriting with content of value is the hallmark of a successful online marketer.

Connect

Without people we have NO business. Ours is now a business of connecting with people. Social media is an integral part of any web business. Social networking platforms drive traffic to our online business. Social interaction is key to the success of any internet marketing business. We can build a successful web business when we can brand our profile in the social networking world. People will gain trust and confidence when they have a perceived idea of ​​what we do in our online business.

Sororities – Are Rush and Recruitment the Same Thing?

Sorority recruitment for the Panhellenic community on your campus may be called "Recruitment" or "Rush." The word "rush" was coined in the 1920s when students who were upperclass members of fraternities and sororities would rush the train platforms where new students arrived at college. In the 1990s, Panhellenic groups began changing the terminology for this process to more closely acknowledge the process at hand: membership recruitment.

Your campus may call it either recruitment or rush, and you'll probably hear both terms used interchangeably. It might be easiest if you consider "recruitment" to be the formal name and "rush" to be the informal name.

Rush is used both as a noun and a verb. In the noun form, a woman can go through the sorority recruitment process called "rush." As a verb, "rush" means to participate in sorority recruitment. A woman can "rush" a certain chapter, or a sorority sister can "rush" a potential member. This does not mean that one person hurries another along. It means the sorority sister and prospective member are in the process of determining if they are a good match.

If you are planning to participate in sorority recruitment on your campus, you are in good company. No matter the size of the Greek community on your campus, there are thousands of women in the same position as you right now. About 80,000 women join National Panhellenic Conference (NPC) sororities across North America each year. There are 2,937 collegiate sorority chapters on 650 campuses across the US and Canada.

Despite an economic recession, the number of women joining sororities has not decreased. College and university campuses across North America are continuing to see a rising interest in sorority communities.

The History of Leisure and Recreation

When you stop to think about it, humankind has always enjoyed some type of leisure and recreation, so the history of leisure and recreation goes back a very long way. The Romans had the Coliseum, where they watched chariot races and other entertainment. The Greeks had amphitheaters where they viewed drama and comedy, and of course they invented the Olympics, one of the greatest entertainment sport spectacles on earth. The list goes on. Even the Bible discusses singing, dancing, music, and other forms of acceptable recreation, so even the most ancient civilizations enjoyed entertainment and recreation of some sort.

The Middle Ages

Life for most people in the Middle Ages was dark and difficult. More emphasis was put on work, and there was little time for leisure. However, jousting tournaments, hunting tournaments, and the earliest forms of chess, checkers, and other games developed during this time. The people worked hard, the Church forbade many forms of entertainment, but there were still leisure pastimes to help develop the growing history of leisure and recreation.

The Industrial Revolution

This history of leisure and recreation goes far back in time, but leisure and recreation really took off when the Industrial Revolution hit Great Britain in the 1700s. The Industrial Revolution revolutionized work in the modern world, and helped create the modern factory environment. Machines mechanized the manufacture of fabric and fibers, and this ultimately led to more leisure time for the workers. They worked long hours in the factories, but they also had time off, and most employers gave at least some holidays off. Thus, people who had labored from dawn to dusk on farms in rural England, moved to the big city, got jobs in factories, and had leisure time away from their jobs. The Industrial Revolution helped create the notion of leisure time, and it helped create a different view of work and leisure.

The 20th Century

If the Industrial Revolution helped create the history of leisure and recreation, the 20th century helped cement it. Workers demanded shorter working hours, paid vacations and holidays, and weekends off, leading to even more more time for the world's workforce. Today, work and leisure are still strictly separated, but leisure time and recreation are some of the most important aspect of modern life, showing how the history of leisure and recreation has altered throughout time, and become signific popular as people gain more freedom from work and toil.

Tribal Warfare

It's interesting to note that the wide separation between work and leisure in our modern society is something that was not necessary in early, tribal cultures. Early man (and woman), worked when it was necessary to find food or to create items they needed to live, but they did not work continually, they interspersed work with pleasure or leisure, something our society not longer enjoys. For example, in Native American societies, boys "played" at war and warfare, but this play taught them how to use a bow and arrow, useful for hunting as well as defending the tribe. Work became play, while today, the two terms are decidedly distinct.

Never Trust a Programmer

Programming is a bit of mystery to people. It breeds a lot of distrust in an organization. In general, when you don't understand what it takes to make something, anything seems plausible. You might think a house can be built in couple of weeks if you've never gone through the process. In truth they probably could finish construction in that time, but not as a sustainable business. If you watch a house being built and track the progress, you can physically see the foundation being poured, the framing of the structure and so on. It's easy to understand because you physically see it. Writing code for a computer application or a Web site isn't so apparent.

Code is invisible to everyone but the programmer. It's like the magic that takes place behind the curtain. Any team has to just trust a programmer about what is and what isn't doable. The best course of action, estimates, and progress updates are all subject to the programmer's opinion. There's plenty of Type A personalities that have trouble with this, but it goes deeper.

First issues arise when a client decides what they want and when they need it by. Sales people want to sell. Telling the client they have unreal expectations does not close sales. And holy shit, is that a recipe for disaster. I have seen account service cut estimates in half and move money around to accommodate their sale and their commission. At the end of the day it looks like the programmers are screwing up. They do it because it's easy to blame the programmers.

They don't teach office politics in school. They should, but that's a different story all together. A programmer has to be quietly focused doing mental gymnastics to produce clean working code. It's difficult and takes all your energy. There's no time to run around to see whose throwing you under the bus. The games account service plays have consequences.

At a previous agency I worked at, I saw a 7 figure project go down in flames. Who caused the problem? Was it the group of industry leading programmers who worked 70 plus hour weeks to accommodate the client's arbitrary schedule or was it the account service people who agreed to everything the client asked.

I don't want to say programmers never cause issues. If you have ever seen the TV show Seconds From Disaster, catastrophic problems arise from a mix of people not doing their jobs. But, I did see the programmers doing their work. Not sure what everyone else was doing.

So what did the agency think? They laid off (fired) every one of those programs. All the account service however, still works there. After that demoralizing death march, no one wanted to be there anyway.

The programmer's path to hell is paved with the word yes. In order to police their own world they have to be vigilant about what is feasible. Being analytical, they usually put a lot of effort into an estimate. From what I have seen, it's usually more effort than most put forth because they're adept at thinking through multiple scenarios. Unfortunately, I have seen good estimates ignored or challenged. The more realistic they are, the more it is scrutinized from some reason.

It's tough going back to the client with a set of realistic expectations. It makes closing far more difficult. You run the risk of someone else agreeing to the work (who will fail). But the programmer's job isn't any less difficult. Actually, they are the one group of people who are capable of understanding all of it. They know the code and they know the business problem. They may not be good at managing clients, but they certainly can understand what's going on.

Trust your programmers. They are not only engineers and craftsmen, but businessmen as well. They will know from experience what happens to client relationships when someone makes promises no one can keep.

Home Health Care Equipment

Home health care equipment makes it possible for people to be directly involved in maintaining their own health care. Medical devices, tools and technologies designed specifically for home use are becoming more and more popular because of their convenience and their user-friendly nature. Innovations in home health care equipment include "smart" devices that significantly lower the amount of machine maintenance necessary. Many are also wirelessly connected to the Internet, which aids in providing efficient, monitored service.

Convenience and reduced health care costs are some the more important elements that make home health care equipment popular among patients. People with certain conditions which need strict monitoring no longer need to confine themselves to hospitals because there are devices which can now monitor patients in the comfort of their own homes. These devices are geared towards teaching people to monitor themselves and their conditions through the use of tools that can give warnings and signs concerning their health. This could mean more efficient and effective health care, contributed to by patients who have more control over his / her condition.

Home health care equipment sales have been steadily increasing based on customer demand for these innovations and advances. More and more, medical home devices are being designed and produced to cater to various medical needs. A lot of these new devices are very innovative and advanced. Soon to come are toothbrushes that can check one's blood sugar and bacteria levels while brushing, that even comes with a holder that transmits information directly to the person's medical file. People can soon expect heart monitors that can be connected to computers, making it convenient for people to monitor their own heart rates and other vital information which can easily be transmitted to their doctors via the Internet.

Another popular advancement in home health care is the use of video devices for telemedicine. Video equipment used in telemedicine offer high-resolution images and audio that are much better than what computer phones and telephone lines can offer. There are even telemedicine devices which include a blood pressure cuff, a stethoscope and a thermometer, aside from the monitor which directly transmits vital information to the owner's health care provider.

Direct Sales Team Vs Distributor – Which is Better For an International Market?

If you're looking to expand your sales to new markets, then there's one big question you must ask: do I build a direct sales presence or use a distributor? Each method has its benefits and drawbacks, but we're going to make a strong case to use one method over the other in almost every instance.

What's the difference between direct sales and distributors?
A direct sales presence means that your company establishes, manages, and pays a sales team of one or more people in the target market.

An outside agent is any entity that will sell your product in exchange for a service fee. One example is a sales rep, who sells your product in exchange for a percent of the sale. A distributor is similar to a rep, except they would buy product from your company and sell it directly to the end customer.

Is Direct Sales Better?
For most businesses expanding into new markets, especially international markets, hiring a distributor is a better decision-at least until there is enough return from the market to justify building a direct sales presence.

Sure, there is one major advantage to having a direct sales presence-control. Control over the day to day activities of your sales personnel is appealing to most business owners. But this control comes at a heavy price. To start, you'll need to spend the time to hire someone in that market, then train them, then equip them with sales material and management, if not office space and equipment. These costs are prohibitive for most small businesses looking to expand internationally.

And there are even more costs that we haven't mentioned yet. Each market has it's own unique laws, cultures and customs that are essential to master if your company wants to establish a successful sales presence. Japan is a classic example of a marketplace with unique legal structures and business customs that, if not followed, guarantee the failure of any sales efforts. It's hard to pin down an exact monetary value to this learning, but ask yourself this: Can you afford to establish, manage, and pay a sales force in a foreign country for at least a year while they learn the ropes and generate no revenue?

What about a Distributor? Is a Distributor better for new markets?
Distributors are a cost effective means to enter a new marketplace successfully. Here are just a few of the reasons:

  • No Overhead: Unlike running your own sales team, a distributor will take care of the hiring, managing, payment, and optimization of its channel. You're just borrowing their distribution, while they handle the maintenance.
  • Established Channel with Local Knowledge: A good distributor will already know all the laws and customs of the market you're entering. You don't need to reinvent the wheel-you can use someone who already has valuable local knowledge.
  • Understand Pricing and Purchasing Power of Market: Along with knowledge of the laws and customs comes knowledge about the most successful ways to price and market your product locally.
  • Cost Effective: Since you won't be paying for the above items, distributor relationships are much more within reach of a small business trying to enter a new market.

Using a distributor has some downsides as well, but they can be minimized by building a good relationship with a distributor.

  • Not your own people: You won't be able to directly manage every step of the process. While it may make you nervous to lose some control over the sales process, you can manage the risk by building a transparent relationship with your distributor with constant updates and feedback from both ends.
  • Distributor has many products to represent: You may not be the distributor's top priority at any given time, and you want to be sure your product is not getting shuffled to the back of the line. Once again, a well-established relationship with constant contact will ensure that your product is getting the attention it deserves.
  • Not a "turn key" solution: You can't just give the distributor your products and expect success. You'll have to manage the relationship. This takes time, but it's still less costly than trying to install a direct sales team from scratch.

So what do I do next?
If you aren't convinced that a distributor would be better for your organization than establishing a direct sales team, seek help from a consultant who has experience establishing a presence in new markets. A consultant can use his or her experience to analyze your opportunity and recommend the best course of action.

Before you choose a distributor, you need to know ….
Choosing the wrong distributor will set you up for failure. The wrong distributor simply won't generate sales, and you'll have wasted at least a year finding and setting up an unprofitable relationship.

There are certain things to look for in a distributor, and they are different for every market. The best thing to do is to find a professional, one with experience in distributor relationships, and hire that professional to help you search for and identify the right distributor.

Difference Between Linux and Windows Dedicated Servers Introduction to VPS Hosting

A few years back, there was a fundamental difference between Windows Dedicated Server Hosting and Linux. However, nowadays the companies that use different hosting enjoys compatible services that reduce the difference to some extent. If you invest in a wrong server or a hosting package, no amount of trying will make you satisfied. Therefore, it is essential that you choose a server or hosting package only after understanding the similarities and differences of the servers. You must also make sure to decide the working system before you can choose a server or a hosting package.

Accessibility: One of the primary difference that you'll see in Windows Dedicated Server Hosting and Linux is the way you access each of the servers. Though both the servers allow you to access it through FTP and follow a decorum for transferring information, you can access a server remotely only through Linux Hosting. You can exchange files in both the servers, but only Windows Dedicated Server Hosting allows you to access more grave parts of the server by giving you the advanced control option.

Development: The requirement of the technicians and the programmers are kept in mind while designing and developing Linux Hosting system standard. These applications are utilized later so that as an end customer you get the best functionality based on the Linux Hosting system. Besides, you can also enjoy the development that takes place in the Linux Hosting system so that you get an improved service. On the contrary to Linux Hosting system, Windows Dedicated Server Hosting is developed directly for the end customer. Therefore, it's less complicated.

Programming language: Another mentionable difference between Linux Hosting and Windows Dedicated Server Hosting is the programming languages ​​used for both the servers. While the service providers create Linux Hosting system with the help of CGI, PHP or Perl programming language, Windows Dedicated Server Hosting is created with the help of ColdFusion, ASP, and.NET. You can find differences even in the database management system as Linux uses MySQL database management and Windows Hosting utilizes either SQL Server or MS Access. Thus, you can understand the factors that directly influence the process of development of websites and even applications that are connected to either of these platforms.

Features: Sometimes you will see that some of the developers try to make the websites or applications Windows Server friendly so that those can run on Windows systems smoothly. However, applications or websites on Linux Hosting system can run on Windows computers as well. In that case, you don't face any issues related to the programming language of the server and you can access data easily. Another benefit that you can enjoy while utilizing the facility of any of the servers is that you get the support of the root chairman. Therefore, you can run any assignment without confronting any problems. Linux Hosting system is good in terms of dedicated servers and it is becoming more powerful with the availability of software and applications that are based on it.

Usage: One of the main reasons that Windows Dedicated Server Hosting has become so popular is the easy to use interface. As the user interface of Windows Dedicated Server Hosting has the ease of accessing, you can access and oversee the connected machines effortlessly. You have to simply sign up into your server account to access the nearby connected machines. However, you may require some time to get used to the procedure as the process can run only with certain orders that may become annoying sometimes. On the other hand, the usage has become significantly easy as different people have put their thoughts while creating a Windows Dedicated Server Hosting system. You don't have to worry about facing any issues while utilizing the server because of the simple yet effective user interface of the system.

Security: In terms of security, it's well-known that Linux Hosting system is more secure than Windows Dedicated Server Hosting. You can access the working system of Linux without paying any amount. Therefore, you can make changes that can improve the service of the server as well. The source code is openly accessible to anyone. In the course of keeping the source open, hackers have tried to break into the server and collapse the system, but they have failed. This is possible only because the large community that has been supporting the creation and improvement of Linux Hosting services. In spite of being an open source.

On the contrary, Windows Dedicated Server Hosting patches the gaps by developing some Service Packs or Windows Updates or Patches. There's a dedicated team of developers who try to keep the hosting server secure. Windows system is more prone to virus attack even though the server is closed-source. A large portion of the applications is customized as per the requirement of the users in general and not specific to your personal requirement. In either of the servers, the qualified professionals take care of the security of the servers and maintain the safety so that you can use the servers without facing any difficulty.

Expense: The final and most important point that you must keep in mind and that can be a deciding factor for you is the expense for both the servers. You must be an authorized user of Windows Dedicated Server Hosting as this is a Microsoft product and its safety measures are quite strict. Therefore, you have to pay a colossal amount to use the server and the charges may not be recurring. On the other hand, you can access Linux Hosting system without paying anything as this is an open-source program. Thus, the expenses levied on you is basically nothing. It is clear that Linux Hosting system is cost-effective in comparison with Windows Dedicated Server Hosting system.
