In a software development process, programmers are the technicians. By definition, programmers are responsible for writing, testing, debugging and maintaining the source code of computer programs. They can understand the ideas and demands of customers and convert them into efficient and clean computer codes. They often use many different resources like coding languages and frameworks to create and optimize their codes, so that it doesn’t conflict with the work of their teammates and make for a better application.
Overall, creating a bug-free and well-optimized application is the focus of a programmer. But a software developer can do all of this, and some more.
In addition to all of programmers’ work, developers also find out exactly what their target customers want, devise a plan on how to apply those ideas and concepts in the application, and can provide instructions and specifications to fellow programmers in the development process.
Software developers around the world are responsible for the structure and design of a software product, as well as guiding the programmers and improving the company’s rating and relationship with their customers. Their skills consist of those found in programmers, analysts, architects and technicians.
