Software engineering is a fascinating field with endless opportunities in both industry and academia. However, these two worlds are vastly different, and their interests are not always aligned.
As someone who has experienced both, I will give a three-part keynote. First, I’ll discuss how big companies make engineering decisions, which can help researchers in applied fields.
Secondly, I’ll talk about what I would do differently if I returned to being a full-time researcher. As someone who has stepped away from academia and back, I can attest to the importance of taking a break to recognize where mistakes are being made.
Finally, I will focus on software engineering education. Researchers in the NL are required not only to do ground-breaking research, but also to educate the future generations of software engineers. Society needs engineers more than ever, and what we do in the classroom has a strong impact in the productivity of these engineers.
Great sketch-up done by Carolin Brandt:
Such an inspiring start to the #SENSymposium this year with @mauricioaniche's keynote!— Carolin Brandt 🐳 (@laci_noire) June 2, 2023
Lots of insights and opinions of Mauricio on industry, research, education and personal learning's 😊✨👨🏽💻👨🏻🏫👩🏼🎓 pic.twitter.com/S9JrNFvMea
