Aside: should software engineers be licensed?
You may have heard about this issue
- For example, Texas now requires (under some conditions) that software engineers be licensed as professional engineers
It’s an incredibly complex issue
- Technically, socially, politically and legally
- I’d be happy to discuss my views on this with individuals (including on the mailing list), but I won’t spend time in class on it
BTW, I am strongly opposed to licensing software engineers for the foreseeable future
