Awkward moments in an interview where the person was repeatedly saying that , "werr you coding in your old job ?", "Here you will be doing a lot of coding " and shit like that. When he asked about my hobby immediately after , i say i am a blogger. When i was asked what my last blog was it was awkward to mention that " How the word coding is offensive for software developer !"

Couldnt have asked for a better timing..

    @aEEEdev I can see what you're trying to get at but I am happy to be called a programmer, coder or developer. It is about what we do which, in truth is mostly writing texts for a machine to understand and execute. Which is directly what 'programming' entails and pretty much what 'coding' entails.

    Coding:

    1. the process of assigning a code to something for classification or identification.

    (The machine identifies what everything we make means and uses it)

    Programming:

    2. the process of scheduling something, especially radio or television programmes.

    (The scripts we write are basically just schedules for the machine to execute)

    I am sorry and I'm sure you will disagree with this post too but I don't have any problems with the terms.

    I'm an engineer. Developer, coder, and programmer are just too heavily tied to other types of positions. I'll accept programmer but only if it is "computer programmer". Otherwise when people ask, I'm an engineer.
