What's In a Name

Over the last 15-20 years of my programming career my title has changed all over the place while doing essentially the same job.

In some jobs I have been titled a programmer.  In others an application developer.  Still others I was called a software developer.  One employer called me a software engineer.

The engineer title was a little much for what was going on.  Even the title architect seems a bit much.  Perhaps there are those that get degrees in software architecture or software engineering, but it kind of leave my paradigm of what engineers and architects are.
