A Coder is a programmer who enjoys coding.
It’s an umbrella term for people who create or modify software in their spare time, which in turn can be used to describe any programmer who is interested in programming.
“You can call it a Coding Nerd or a C# Nerd,” says Coding Geek editor Matt Bellamy.
“I think it’s a big term, a broad term, so it’s not limited to that.
We’ve had a couple of Coder magazines and one about coding.
Coder Magazine editor Matt Barnes, pictured, says the term has expanded as a result of a growing online community. “
It’s a really broad term.”

“A lot of the time we hear people saying, ‘Well, it’s just a hobby, it can’t be a job.’
But it’s been really good to have people who are really passionate about coding, who are not only interested in the code, but they also want to work with other people, who know how to code, who want to do the coding themselves, who can work with others, who do their own programming.”
But while a lot people have become passionate about the technology in recent years, there is a big divide between those who do and those who don’t, says Barnes.
“People who are into coding, there’s certainly a lot that’s going on with coding now.
There’s a whole bunch of people, from young people who just want to be a developer, to professionals who have spent a lifetime in computer science, who have some coding experience,” he says.
And people in their twenties are really interested in computers. “
But it’s still young people.
And people in their twenties are really interested in computers.
They’re not really as committed as they used to be to their coding, to learning how programming works.”
Coding is not just for young people, either.
“There’s a new generation of coders, coders who are much more interested in working with technology, but also with people who have been involved with computer science in some capacity for a long time,” says Barnes, adding that it’s also an opportunity for younger people to have more involvement with the community.
A lot of Coding’s editors and contributors are passionate about code, and the language they write.
“We’ve got a lot to learn from people who’ve been writing code for a very long time, who haven’t necessarily made a lot out of their coding career,” says Bellamy, “but who are doing it for a good reason, and who are passionate in their craft.”
A lot more than a hobby Coder can be an exciting career choice, but it’s something to be aware of if you’re interested in coding.
“The biggest thing that we hear about people who want [to code], is that they love it, they love the idea of coding, they think it will be fun and they don’t necessarily have a job lined up for when they finish,” says Simon Parnas, the editor-in-chief of Coded.
In his article on the Coder website, Bellamy says Coder has seen a significant rise in the number of young people coming into the industry, and says this is an opportunity that needs to be seized. “
However, if you’ve got lots of coding experience and you love it because you love learning, you may find it’s less likely to be the right fit for your job.”

“One of the big things that we’ve noticed is that a lot new people are coming into Coding now.
We’re seeing a lot, a lot young people are now taking it up, and it’s really exciting,” he said.
“They’re finding a lot for themselves in it, and they’re looking at it and saying, I’m going to be part of this community, and this is what it’s going to mean for me, and I think they’re finding it’s an interesting challenge and a great career.”
