How would someone with experience in the tech industry (and hopefully experience as a software engineer, but not necessarily) identify someone who just shouldn’t be/wasn’t meant to be a software engineer?

They talk and talk about their code. But their code won’t do much talking.
Modular Design. They just don’t understand it. Nor about maintaining a large codebase.
Their comments are larger than their code.
NoSQL and shiny languages/frameworks are their buzzwords. But have no idea why one should or should not use them.
Memorizing code. I repeat. Memorizing code. Line by line. Especially for technical interviews.
Copy-paste code from StackOverflow without at least reading through it once.
Won’t get frustrated when something doesn’t work as intended. It won’t keep them up at night. Would lack that delight at finding the solution that had been staring at his/her face for so long!
They code and its over. They don’t want to keep polishing it later.
Good programmers are mostly lazy. They don’t like to do redundant stuff if it can automated. They are proud of their work. They are always willing to learn. They are always trying to be jack of all trades.
I’ll go against popular opinion. I started with Python. I did all my projects in my Master’s program in Python. However, after graduating, I started working for a company that worked on Microsoft stack. I realized the importance of strongly typed language when it came to writing large applications. I fell for “hey, how simple it is to write hello world program in python” trick. Everything looks nice, and feels better when you write a to-do app. You’ll see the real face of the language when your application grows. I recommend learning python after you have mastered a strongly typed language like Java/C#. There are “recommended” ways to write Python but not enforced upon. Also, I’ve heard learning about types is not a big hurdle for beginners.
My laptop was randomly freezing.So After a lot of hassle I have found that Nvidia graphics driver is the criminal for this situation.May be my laptop hangs for this randomly or bios could not find the real driver to make companion with the Nvidia PhysX GPU.
And another cause I have found that my old version adobe master collection CS 6 also making deadlocking situation with.windows.
First clean install windows then update it fully.Then install driver one by one that is needed.Then install software you need and keep records.If anything harms for you then uninstall this soft after a hard restart if it is freezed thatt time.Or you can make login to ubuntu if it is installed in your pc then delete those files are hampering your work.And work perfectly in windows
While I was trying to connect with the client then the server pc got hanged even after restarting….the issue was synergys.exe process deadlock may be..As my Mouse cursor was freezing…So I uninstalled the synergy from uninstaller however and then restarted…
Then I find out the bonjour or automatic searching on server or clients RSA security certificate causes this …
So I manually defined my client PC on server configuration and then connected from client successfully..and this problem solved perfectly….as after restarting or log on to windows my mouse cursor is working well 🙂

Hi, thanks for your interest on my blog 🙂 I am Syed Ahmed Zaki, from Germany. This is my blog “Zakilive.Com” for sharing my knowledge and passion with you all.
I was born in a beautiful country of south asia named Bangladesh. I am a Computer Science and Engineering graduate and currently doing my post graduation in Germany. I am passionate, dedicated, hardworking about my tasks and fond of Algorithms, Competitive Programming, Mathematics, Research in data science(Machine Learning, AI, NLP, Deep Learning), bioinformatics and IoT. I also love software engineering. In software development field I prefer Web Application Engineering.
In my bachelor study life, I tried to participate in several programming contests(online, onsite, intra etc.) and passed some time in ACM training class for sharpening my logical skills. As an ordinary people it was little bit tough for me alongside with academic pressure, thesis and research paper writing but I love challenges so I always tried to push my limits though still I need to improve a lot in everything but I always trust in this quote “Hard work beats talent”. That quote I have learned from my life through bodybuilding of 6 years since 2012 and after losing 33 KG fat in 4 months from 101 KG I developed my fit physique, so I respectfully believe in this sentence and relate this with CSE field. I also love to learn from my failures. I hate excuses while working professionally and I love trying to finish my work with perfection till the last moment before deadline.
I also love to explore and play with new technologies and try to implement it with innovative ideas. In my bachelor university life, I always tried to learn from the basics of Computer Science. So, I have tried to gather Networking to Database Knowledge, OS fundamentals to OOP etc. all fundamental core basics in my skillset in a practical approach.
Alongside with developing some web applications in core php and laravel framework I have also tried to build games with unity3d game engine, built 2 android apps, experimented machine learning with python, data mining with WEKA, AI chatbot, IoT based weather station and some more project works for my undergraduate courses. As I am language and platform agnostic, I enjoyed and learned a lot from all of these works. I also love teamwork. Alongside software engineering and different extra curricular activities I also love teaching. I am also proficient at working with linux and windows based OSes and I feel so lucky if I get chance to contribute in opensource projects. In my linkedin profile you will find more details about me.
However, I am actually a knowledge seeker and life long passionate learner who tries to make his weakness as strength, I was a serious student of all the courses in CS academia that can solve real life problems as I love to explore knowledge in a crafted manner. I love to study books, blogs or whatever philosophically solve my curiosity. For that, I maintain a good collection of various technological, scientific and philosophical books in my small library. Knowledge sharing, analytical thinking, practice and passing the passion of mine with you is one of my motivations for running this blog. I practice to hone my skills with trying to improve my programming and developing skillset day by day and what I learn, I never forget to share here for you.
In my free time I love to do cycling or gym or play racing games in my android phone or watch animated movies and also love to promote positive, fit and healthy lifestyle among people.
Currently I am working with Java technologies. If you have any opportunity/business to work with me or any other query kindly say just hi to me at my mail: [email protected]
Caution and Tips:
First, Try To Understand the Problem Statement. Second, Solve Code with Pen and Paper. Third, Then Write code and submit in the OJ to justify test cases. Fourth, If failed to AC then optimize your code to the better version. Fifth, After failed in 3rd time see my solution. Understnad the logic and implement by your own.
Please, don’t just copy-paste the code. It will kill your creativity 🙂
