re: Does anyone else feel bothered when people term us as coders instead of developers or programmers..? VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I'm not bothered by the terms themselves so much as the attitude/tone/context they're used with. I've been programming since the mid-90s, and prefer simply "developer" if someone's asking. "Coder" sounds a little naive.

I would be concerned if someone I worked with or for had no respect for software craft or process, and thought of writing software as a low-skill thing. But I don't get hung up on the terminology necessarily.
