According to Indeed.com, though developers and programmers have similar job duties and abilities, they are two different professions. A programmer is a technician who specializes in coding, whereas a developer is a designer or project manager who can also code.
A programmer's primary focus is writing code and implementing specific functionalities based on given specifications. They possess strong coding skills and expertise in specific programming languages. In contrast, a developer's scope of work is broader and encompasses multiple stages of the software development lifecycle. They have a comprehensive skill set, including knowledge of software architecture, design patterns, and other related technologies. Developers adopt a more holistic approach to problem-solving and are responsible for coordinating various aspects of the development process.
