The developer job title has become very popular in the 21st century, and it is often used synonymously with "programmer." However, a developer implies more than just coding.

Software Is All About Developing
The software business is a service industry that involves human thinking almost exclusively. This contrasts with computer hardware or any other industry that makes equipment, whereby manufacturing is a major part of the business.
The only physical manufacturing in software is the CD or DVD package for retail sales; however, very few applications find their way to a store shelf these days because software distribution is mostly on the Web. Sometimes when ordering online, optical media are an extra-cost option for backup. See software publisher, software engineer, programmer and systems programmer.
