I’ve worked in more than 20 countries, and I’ve had the opportunity to work on projects that span the globe from the highest mountain peaks to the lowest ocean depths. I’ve worked with the military, the CIA, NASA, the U.S. Department of Defense, and many other federal, state, and private agencies. The only place I’ve spent more time working with people is the homes of the United States military.
Ive worked with many different kinds of contractors and different kinds of clients, from home builders to the largest and most sophisticated defense and aerospace contractors for the U.S. Military.
How can I make my living? By getting my electronics, computers, and other equipment into the hands of the Government.
Many military contractors work with building automation, which is the process of controlling the building of your home’s interior lighting, heating, and other features. Typically, this is done by an engineer who takes a 3D model of your home and builds a graphical interface into it so you can adjust appliances, light switches, outlets, and the like.
Building automation is not the same as robotics, but it’s pretty close. If you want to build a house with your own hands, there are plenty of people who can do that. That’s not the same though. In robotics, people are building and controlling robots that do things for them on a very specific schedule.
In building automation, the engineer is just a programmer who builds a computer program that runs on that engineer’s computer.
Building automation is becoming more and more common as it is a lot cheaper and faster to create and maintain than robotics, but still more expensive and time consuming. The big difference is that the engineer is an expert in software instead of building a robot. Even though a robot is controlled by a person, you only need to write the code once to build one.
the engineer is also a great analogy for the software engineer who has to create code with knowledge beyond the programmer’s job description.
I do believe that the average person has a lot of time to spend building and maintaining robots, but I get the impression that the engineer is often a good guy. It’s hard to go wrong when you’re only on a computer, and the man who works for you is the person who wrote the code for the robot.
I don’t know what the phrase “developer” means anymore, but the computer programmer is in the business of creating code. This makes it sound as though the developer is literally the person who created the code, and that the person who wrote the code is somehow in some way the product. The programmer is the person who writes the code, but this is like the software engineer who created the code.
