Discussion on: What do you call people who don't code?

I like "non-developers". I am one! I have a long, successful career in technology and very rarely have I had to sit down and code. Yes, I have written stuff in bash, perl, some python (mostly rewriting bash and perl stuff), ansible, terraform. But if a "real coder" looks at it, they might call it what I call it... quick and dirty. A tool which does one specific thing I needed at the time.

I'm here because I consider myself an architect and as such, I acknowledge the areas I'm weaker at and need more exposure. So I'm learning by just being here, and eternally grateful.
