Software engineering is one of the few employment areas to enjoy constant growth over the past decade. During the pandemic, developers became even more important, as we all came to rely even more on software in our daily lives. In fact, the number of software developer jobs has increased during the pandemic. 


What are the Major Tasks performed by Software Engineers?


Software engineers are the creative, brainstorming masterminds behind computer programs of all sorts. There are two main classifications of developers: applications software developers and systems software developers. Application software developers focus on a specific program or app, while systems software developers create giant networks or underlying systems that help trigger and power other programs. 


Much of the actual creation of software programs happens through the writing of code, and software developers oversee that. Depending on the company where they work, a software developer will analyze the needs of the user and then create, test and develop software that will solve a problem, provide entertainment or simply make life easier for its intended audience. 


After mapping out the design, creating flowcharts and drafting out each step of the process, developers will build diagrams and models to instruct programmers how to write the code for the program.


Other job duties include mapping out the software to have on record for future upgrades and enhancements, testing the software, and collaborating with other computer specialists to make sure the software is functioning properly.
