Web Developer / Programmer


The distinction between a web developer/programmer and software engineer is that a software engineer generally has a theoretical CS education and is knowledgable in the areas of algorithms, data structures and architecture whereas a web developer/programmer simply knows how to program. At this point the line is pretty blurry but some engineers like the distinction so they can feel better about themselves.

Tim: Look at that idiot over there. He doesn't know anything about algorithms and he didn't even go to college.
David: Sure but isn't what he does day to day exactly what you do.
Tim: Yes but I went to MIT
