            Why? At a certain level, you need to build your knowledge from a disorganized field of research paper, open source projects, etc, not from nicely structured books. And that involves working in the field, or contributing to open source.

        I have a CS master's degree and had a course about computer vision which involved some ML (this was almost a decade ago so didn't encounter any deep learning until I studied it on my own for my thesis).
        Got hired as a software dev at a medium sized company and when they needed someone to do AI stuff they put me in the position of data scientist since I said I have a bit of AI experience. So now I get to frick around with AI/ML even though I still have to learn a shitload of theory and especially practical applications and bringing ML to production. But it's cool cause I told them this and they were like yeah sure let's just learn and experiment and see what we can do. Just do an online course or something.
        Pretty useful to know just a tiny bit more than the people around you. Suddenly you're the expert and you get authority. It's nice but I have to be careful with expectation management and not overpromise.
        Fortunately my boss jumped on the AI hype train so I got room to just frick around and do cool shit, even though at the moment it might just be making chatbots with OpenAI.

        At least in my experience the field isn't completely saturated, based on the difficulty we have in finding people. But then again my company doesn't pay top dollar so they're not gonna attract the most qualified people.
        Good for me I guess.

          Even their Interpreter implementation breaks 90% of the time, you have to keep directing through prompts to come to a decent result.

            I think the most practical application of AI is a fine tuned 8B model for your business that does basic critiques. Most LLMs are very good at being rubber ducks or giving you a jumping off point.

            I like to spin shit in all possible ways, get a rough idea of the shape of the problem, then get to it. The procedural way of you need to take the problem, check the left side, then top, if this then that... doesn't work for me when I need to solve a complex puzzle.

      embedded is not a saturated major because there's no fricking job for embedded in america. it's all in east asia.

      honestly, if you're looking for the lowest possible barrier to entry in tech, it's QA, devops, and maybe even secops. not saying those jobs are better than software or even easy, just saying they have less moronic interview processes in general because there's less leetcode grinding involved. but the hard part is you can't really get the experience required to do those jobs without having your foot in the industry first.

            this. consumer data is not an asset, but often times a liability (in terms of fines if it's compromised). having said that, your data isn't worth it's actual value to the company, rather it's value is attributed and distributed across any fines imposed by its compromise. In other words: as far as the company is concerned your personal data is worth that $6.34 check the class action lawsuit mandates they pay out.

          One of the few pieces of truth in this thread.
          People in cybersec run someone else's scanner software and then send emails out to people to fix things when they see a red danger icon. They have no idea what each item actually means.
          I got a call the other day from cybersec because I was using my work github account which doesn't have the registered email as a client email. The account is linked via githubs SSO settings. Cybersec ran a scan, didn't see a client email, and flagged me as a security concern.

            Yes, that was the hell I got stuck into when I went into Application Security. The guy who was doing it before me had no software development experience so when he did scans and sent out reports, the developers would just say most of the vulns were false positives. He couldn't argue because he barely could write a shell script. I came in and stopped that nonsense which pissed off the developers because they actually had to remediate their vulns. I only lasted a year because spending every day arguing with third world level developers about vulns, some as basic as SQL injection, is exhausting. Some of them would rather argue half a day instead of taking half an hour to make the correction.
            If I were ever to go back into AppSec, they'd have to pay me double the salary I get as a developer. Arguing all day might be fun for some people but I find it tedious and annoying. The other solution is to have AppSec specialists who don't know anything about programming and will simply do all the paperwork, check all the boxes, and run all the reports that show the vulns were false positives even while actual security risks from the vulns continue to exist. While that won't make the system more secure, it satisfies the insurance company and the compliance requirements, so the lawyers are happy.

          • 1 month ago
            Anonymous

            I get that. I generally don't argue about vulns unless they are legitimately moronic "false positives" like things flagging dynamic content (not user supplied, CMS stuff) as possible injection vulns. If trusted CMS authors are injecting malicious JS, there are bigger problems than a vuln scan can ever hope to fix. However the cybersec people have no idea so they just do the needful and report red danger sign.
            In our case, our appsec/cybersec teams are so absolutely fricked that they don't even reach out directly. cybersec pings some QA/BA/manager in a dev team that then has the responsibility to talk to an actual developer about it. So now I have two non technical people reporting red danger signs.

    80% of IQfy won't qualify, but most could make an effort and learn. However, 99.3792% of the global population won't qualify, because those tards (even people working in IT) believe that ChatGPT is AI. And ML AI. That's a disqualifier right here, because it shows that they know frick all about those concepts in the first place.

    >Well what is it IQfy
    competent software engineering (& adjacent) is not saturated and will never be
    the useless LARP barely-not-nocoder kind is what's oversaturated
    get good, otherwise all your problems are just a skill issue

      Companies need competent workers and the competent workers need good companies to work for but matching the two up is becoming increasingly difficult, partially because of the ever worsening signal to noise ratio in a labor market full of shitty developers but also because the hiring pipeline to separate the two is increasingly long and dysfunctional, often weeding out the talented developers and passing through those who are mostly talented at playing HR/recruiter games but aren't very good at actual development.

    full custom IC layout, you cant learn it in schools and nobody will teach you unless you're right next to a literal wizard in some black project basement in guantanamo bay
    Why do you think the ESP made so much money, layout a wireless interface is pretty much magic and only a handful people can do it from scratch

      I remember I went to some small science equipment business and they were actually struggling to finding embedded programmers.

      Europe? I hear there's embedded jobs are only there.

    What about SRE guys. I am able to ask more money than backend and frontend devs who have a couple of years experience more than me.
    I'm a yuropoor though.
