New Group for Philosophers Interested in Software Engineering


Caleb Ontiveros, who left the University of Notre Dame’s PhD program in philosophy to pursue a career in tech, is often asked by people studying philosophy how he transitioned to software engineering and programming.

Prompted by this, he has created a new Facebook group, Philosophers in Software Engineering. It’s purposes are to collect advice for philosophers interested in learning how to program or careers in software engineering and connect philosophers who transitioned from academic philosophy into careers in software engineering. Interested parties are welcome to request to join the group.

He has also created a Google document that he invites others to supplement: Resources on Software Engineering.
