So, I've realised there's a problem with developers, a lot of them are coders, not engineers. And another issue, is that, companies don't really care about their progression as far as I'm aware, so what did you guys do in your own time to transition from being a coder to an engineer?

How do you feel about your job? Either your current position right now or your general role as a SWE - do you genuinely enjoy it and have a passion for it, tolerate it and collect the paycheck, or hate it? Does the industry you’re in have an impact on your answer - e.g. FAANG vs. fintech vs. ed tech? Personally after switching companies I’ve gone from hating to tolerance, but I feel like I’m never going to be excited about what I’m doing.
