Coding vs Programming

Coding Vs Programming

If I ask you a question, “What is the difference between Coding and Programming”?

You might reply, “Both are the same”.

Will you believe me, if I say, “There is a difference between the two”.

To understand the difference between the two, let’s first start what is coding?

We all know that computers only understand the language of 1s and 0s and our natural language is completely different from this binary language. Thus, we need to translate the commands that we want to execute into the language of computers. This process of translation of natural language into machine language is called coding.

Now, you will ask, “Then what is programming”?

To create a product (software), you need to take several additional steps. These include planning, design, testing, deployment, and even maintenance. Altogether, the whole process is called programming. While coding is a big part of software development, it is not the most important part.

Now, you might have understood that the question “Is coding and programming the same thing”?, is equivalent to the question “Is a tree and a forest the same thing”?
