    M , I have played around with programming ( C and PHP) but the most I've done is just create batch files – no big deal but my then employer gave me some rewards b/c it saved so much time. You are amazing, u have a great presence, are very smart and sooo pretty on top of all that – u my dear will go places, may God smile on you M.

    What would you say is the difference between Computer Science and Software Engineering, if any, or are the terms interchangeable?

    I was in tech during great recession and saw quarterly rounds of layoffs. It's not true that software engg jobs are secure. They get outsourced to India as soon as the stock price is not rising, gets flattened or goes down. Expect FB to outsource to Bangalore if the stock price doesn't come back up.

    Hello Mayuko,

    Thanks for sharing your journey to become software engineer. Now I have some questions from you and I hope I will get response soon

    1). During this journey from Ist year of graduate to this time, How many languages you have learned?
    2). In your video, you have mentioned "I learned a lot about Software engineering". So my question is, what are the roles of Software engineer and What process needs to follow or topics to cover to become a software engineer?

    Thanks

    in US you do not have programming in school? wow! I had it in Russia back in 2002, it was QBasic, Visual Basic. My brother is 10 years old now and he have some kind of microcontroller programming in robot construction class.

    HELLO just wanted to say i really appreciate this video as a girl looking to get into software engineering (maybeee? something to do with computing science) I TOO thought that chemistry would be for me but i recently came to the conclusion that I hate it lol, Im good at computing science the subject but I think i need to expand my skills and practice a bit before I can like proper chase it as a career if you get me? But anyway thank you so much for this I am #inspired

    I'm 12 and I am 100% sure I want to be a software engineer. My parents keep bugging me to code more as I don't do it that often at the moment, but I knew that I didn't need to worry as i knew that many people didn't start programming until the are in college

    I'm really impressed how healthy, charming, and positive a software engineering can be. In China, I've seen so many of them working 10 hours a day, not doing exercises, being expressionless and suffering from health problems like bad cardio and curved vertebrate. Again I'm very stunned by the fact that even a software engineering in the states can be as charming as an actress.

    i feel like guys can't watch this content. see, like jarvis, that appeals to men and women. but this all just "girly" shit. it's always that way, women just can't transcend gender into pure substance like guys can. too much emotion clouding over everything.

    Hey Mayuko. Watching this and your other videos actually helped to broaden and helped me gain more knowledge to tackle Software Engineering. I’ve been uncomfortable about it due to not so good math skills. But yesterday I gave it a try to learn a language and it actually felt exciting. I can’t wait to step on college and actually do something bigger in my career. Thank you again!

    Thanks for your videos, I have a question I am going into computer science but I am working myself to transfer. I know it is challenging and classes are hard to get into the program. Do you have any advice besides the basic information out there on what things I can do so I get into an University. I live in Seattle

    I totally have the exact mug you have at the beginning haha, what are the odds! I'm new to your channel and I love your energy. I'm an Aerospace Engineering student trying to learn computer science out of self interest (and I'm finishing in one more semester so I can't do a minor). Your story is super insightful and inspiring, thanks so much for sharing!

    so essentially she did kindergarden engineering projects. these software engineers love to pretend they are engineers and smart but they actually are the dumbest of all engineers. i did more complex and impressive electrical engineering projects then she has done as a professional. of course, i don't make videos because it would be too complicated to explain.

    my only one question to you is how the freak did you handle all the stress and the let downs about software engineering (i mean even teachers be disappointing students about their careers, making them think twice before entering to a new semester)? because right now i literally found your video cuz' i am trying so hard not to get out of college lol and i really need some motivation.
