Good news everyone, turns out you can’t have “software engineer” in your title if you don’t have a degree
@xomputer in Canada this is literally true, us non P.Eng degree holders have to call ourselves “developers” per the Engineering and Geosciences Professions Act.
@xomputer (for all I know you’re also Canadian and I just went all ‘splainy on you; sorry)
@dijkstracula nah my situation is a LOT stupider
@dijkstracula also Canada is correct imo
@xomputer I also agree tbh, and also Canadian engineering culture is weird as hell and I’m at peace with missing out on https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ritual_of_the_Calling_of_an_Engineer#Ritual
@xomputer that's horseshit
remember that Ohio programmer who got fined when he pointed out that a traffic light was timed wrong because he described himself as an "software engineer" when he didn't have a P.E.
@io it's even funnier because software engineer is a fake title
