    This is a good read. I honestly don’t have any idea how to differentiate software engineers and data scientists. At least now I know their specific roles and how to work hand in hand in developing programs. I cant say which one is better because either way both career paths are perfectly able in satisfying your long term growth. But in your point of view, which one has a promising career?
