do not use the word coder please.

if you write code, you're a programmer. if you call yourself a coder, you're either a sixth grader who just learned about the terminal, or an idiot.

    When someone says "coder", I immediately think of someone doing HTML, CSS and basic JS while writing all these beginner tutorials on dev.to or medium.

    Coder != Programmer for me, sorry!

    I agree. “Coder” just sounds dumb. Honestly, I prefer “developer” or “software engineer” to “programmer.”

    Coder is someone who encodes. Encodes what? Idk and idgaf.

    Programmers program a machine to do something.

    Engineers come up with a solution that the program can solve.

    Some people do all of the above. What are they?
