I guess it has to do with the image people have of each.
A programmer is someone who is anti-social and types code all day, not rarely for evil intent.
A coder is pretty much the same, but without the evil, maybe? It sounds more akin to script kiddies.
A developer sounds a lot more friendly. We're developing, rather than destroying.
I know I prefer the term developer because it sounds like I do more than just type code.
As a developer I also create UI's.
Or what about an engineer? I think I've had that title in the past.
In the end they're all the same, but managers rather hire developers than coders.
Put full-stack or cloud somewhere in your title and you'll do well among managers and recruiters Big Grin | :-D
