Different Software job titles

2 New Member
I'm still teen, but I'm sure I want to make my career in the software industry...but I'm still confused between the differences between different related job titles...could you explain me in as much detail as possible the differences between the following (or refer someone who could) : Software engineer, Software developer, Software designer, Software Architect, and Programmer.

This is something that you can do on your own. A simple Google search on each of these terms will bring back more then enough information.

Against my better judgment I'll actually chime in on this one do to the OP's age and inquisition.

Software engineer
- Usually done with Agile Programming techniques often only does a certain peice of the coding.
Software developer- Does from Birth to Deployment of software
Software designer- Takes what the customer or business wants and converts it into something that a programmer can read and use.
Software Architect- The head guy on most Agile Projects who see's the program from birth to deployment but in a less hands on way.
Programmer- Code Monkey is what I am called by some of my colleagues. But it really is just the act of programming the code and not really caring about life to deployment cycles. Really the only true term for everyone.
Software Analyst: Does the sorta same as an Architect and Designer. But in a way less hands on way. Can turn Want in to Code for the programmer and knows how to translate

I apologize in advance for launching this post but I might get enlightment somehow (PS: I am _very_ agnostic ;-). - 1) I do not consider my intelligence/education above average - 2) I am very pragmatic - 3) I usually move forward when I get the gut feeling I am correct - 4) Most likely because of 1), I usually do not manage to fully explain 3) when it comes true. - 5) I have developed for many years (>18) in many different environments,...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...

But I'm wondering if it's possible to do the same thing, with 2 Pfsense firewalls...
