Once upon a time there was an electronic engineer career path much different than the one many of us are taking today. Let’s go back approximately two decades. When I trained as an electronic engineer, I was learning about vacuum tubes. They were easy enough to understand and were doing what was “written on the box”. No hidden functionality and it was easy to debug the circuits that were built with them. Actually, at that time a good electronic engineer needed just a screwdriver and personal skills to debug such circuits.
