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


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.
