Coding Is Not The Same As Programming

Have you ever heard that coding and programming are not the same things? But, how can that be possible?

Well, in this video I came across a very interesting text, which I've decided to share with you. in this text, the author stated that programming/software development is not the same as coding.

And well, if you know me, whenever I find something interesting, I create a video to share with you guys… And this is exactly what I did in this video.

For a lot of software developers, coding and programming is the same thing. If you do a simple search on the internet, you'll find the below definition for both terms:

Coding
“Digital Technology. a set of symbols that can be interpreted by a computer or piece of software: binary code; Java code;
the symbolic arrangement of statements or instructions in a computer program, or the set of instructions in such a program:”

Programming
“the act or job of creating computer programs”

However, they are not the same thing.

So, do you wanna know more about why coding is not the same as programming? Watch this video and find out!
