... considering starting a youtube channel for programmers (especially beginner programmers), and was looking around on YT seeing what other people are doing.
I was honestly quite surprised to find a lot of people referring to themselves as "software engineers". Maybe I'm just old, - okay, I AM old - but when did programmers get so full of themselves that they felt the need to rebrand their skill set in an apparent desire to sound more important than they actually are?
Back in the day (remember, I'm old), programmers considered it an insult to be called an "engieer".

Depending on the project, target. (Performance is pretty important for me right now)
and cost matters very little.
The problem is, we work for companies, and they do have costs in an altar and sacrify sheeps to get blessed with the money.
I've written software that controls machines too, but it definitely wasn't engineered.
Considering the concept I have from you... It probably was engineered, but you didn't do it on purpose / consciously
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Back again from a gruelling expedition in the Dutch mountains.
Although we had bikes with electric support and did not bike for more than about 30 km, the batteries were drained completely during a trip across the Belgian border in the "Voerstreek" !
Nevertheless our stay in the province of Limburg was very enjoyable, our location near the so-called "three-country point" allowed us to undertake interesting biking trips to the German town of Aachen and a part of Belgium called the "Voerstreek" which made us feel like being in France as this part of Belgium is French speaking.
Also Limburg itself is very attractive, has nice cities like Maastricht, beautiful countryside, marl caves and last but not least "zuurvlees" (sour meat)
