Software Engineering 
Software engineering has long been a tough job to be involved in. There is so much hard work that needs to go into it that there is often very few ways in which people can self teach themselves and land a job without qualifications. You can publicize yourself as much as you want, but at the end of the day, it is proving your skills via earning qualifications that show you know the systems and code you are working with.

This is how software engineering is going today – no longer are talented people finding their way into these roles through reputation alone – at least for those youngsters getting into this line of work today. In the past, all you needed to do is show some competence, and you would ease your way into this role without any problems at all. No need to show that software engineering or coding cert to prove you are capable. People were employed off the back of reputation and their portfolio.

There are still some ways to get into software engineering without having qualifications. There are plenty of freelance websites out there in which people will hire you if the price is right. The key advantages here are that you do not have to fork out an arm and a leg on qualifications or training courses that teach you how to pass the exam or dedicated a large chunk of your time studying for the exams. I mean why should you if you are already very capable.

VPN software engineering has started to become very popular as of late. It is because internet privacy has become a huge deal. See Dazn for an example of the technology I am speaking of. This is the perfect example of how to use software to protect your privacy online.

It is for this reason of online privacy that we are seeing a rise in the number of people and businesses that are accepting and adapting to blockchain technologies. The whole idea of many of the ecosystems created using the concept of blockchain processes is to offer anonymity, which equates to privacy. Being able to transact without being spied on by governments or third parties trying to control everything that you do.

Although there are now several governments that have worked hard to eliminate blockchain tech, they have not been able to. The reason is that these technologies cannot just be put in the trash can and forgotten about in the same way that the USA allegedly trashed the concept of electric cars in the 1960s. People will always come out with another ecosystem using blockchain tech no matter what anyone tries to do to prevent it. Instead, we are now seeing governments trying to regulate these ecosystems rather than trying to shut them out altogether.

It is basically too late to stop blockchain developers and software engineers from continuing to explore the benefits this new found technology now offers. You could ask why governments did not try to stop VPN software (the aforementioned daznerfahrungen). This is because the VPN companies do have some kind of system in place to make sure that their VPNs are not being used by people that are a threat to national security such as terrorists. They play ball with the government to a certain point, but there is also no stopping the VPN companies from offering people that use them privacy.

Much of the privacy with VPNs comes from the ability to connect to servers that are outside the user’s own country. For instance, if someone is in China and does not want the Chinese government monitoring their activities, they can use a VPN. The same applies to anyone in the USA or the UK where internet privacy laws state that governments are allowed to snoop in on your internet activities.

Software engineers have been able to develop all these products for us so we can surf the internet in private. It is amazing to hear that many of these engineers have never even been to a software engineering class. Even some of the blockchain developers we hear of today have managed to find their way into becoming lead developers on successful blockchain projects because they were hired as a freelancer consultant via one of the freelancer websites and their talents stood out so much that other software engineers asked them to work on their projects permanently.

See James Donaghue on Twitter for more information. He is a software engineer that regularly tweets about software engineering principles and comes up with some very useful information. This guy does have some qualifications, but at the same time, he tweets about many systems that his social media or other work profiles online do not mention that he is qualified in. Therefore, his approach is that he already has some qualifications available to him, and he can use those as an example of the fact that he is a developer.

You do not always need to have qualifications in the exact code or area of software engineering that you are applying to work in. You just need some qualifications in the field of software engineering. This way you have already proven that you know what is required of a software developer. If you show interest in areas outside of the field of expertise your qualifications are in, then all you need to do is build up a portfolio as James Donaghue, the software engineer example above has done.
