... 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".
