And what the he*l are "Coders" and what is the difference? Confused | :confused: Confused | :confused:
I started out as a coder, simply by writing code. When I learned the details of the language and learned to write an application without putting procedural code in the events and got paid for it, I became a programmer.

Developer was when I got my education, and requires a bit more than knowing how to program; it suggests you know a bit about databases, webservers, protocols and security.

The first is a bit of a hacker. The second a strong amateur, the third should be someone who doesn't just writes a program, but who can explain when NOT to automate, and what benefits to expect from both options.

Similar to the "three levels of cooking" series on Youtube. My current cooking-skill is just below level 1 Big Grin | :-D

If you can't read my code, try converting it here[^]
