Web Dev seeking ideas

Posted 27 May 2019 - 01:12 AM

Hello, I am a new Web Developer with 2 years exp. My current skillset it HTML5, CSS3, Javascript, jQuery, PHP, MySQL, Ajax.

I am interested in studying Software Engineering but I can't seem to figure out where the fun stuff is.

Can anyone help me with a few ideas as to what kind of work a Software Engineer does?

I don't know if I should stay with Web Applications or goto a learning facility and study software.



Any help will be appreciated!

Thanks

Define 'fun stuff'?

Any desktop, high performance computing, mobile, os, etc all seem to fall under that 'software engineering' umbrella.

I am not quite sure.

I know there is software for machinery. I don't mind that but I was thinking on the lines of electronics etc..

Can you give me any ideas?

So you're interested in developing software? What kind of software?

Well.. There's software for servers, and desktops.. Operating systems, and mobile devices.. Internet of Things, small electronics, and web development.

If electronics are your thing then look at arduinos and raspberry PIs. You can get both fairly cheap or in kits to tinker with.
