  • Specification writing
  • Project planning
  • Creating an installation package
  • Troubleshooting problems during installation
  • and, and, and… Therefore a programmer is a person who produces code, usually after some sort of specification. This is focused on a specific functionality.

A software developer is producing a solution for the customer, with a big focus on customer satisfaction.
