After I drew the ER diagram on the white board in the database lesson, the lecturer commented that I am a programmer.
Lecturer: You have an Diploma in IT right?
Me: No, biotechnology.
Lecturer: I know you’re a programmer.
Yeah yeah… I hate being called a programmer. I somehow prefer to be called a developer. (By the way, I like the way Indians pronounce ‘developer’.) It’s just that programmer sounds like a menial task and developer sounds much nicer.
It’s just like lecturers preferring to be known as lecturers as opposed to being called ‘teachers’.
Just my 0.02 dollars.
