Programming != Software Development by harryobas: 11:01am On Sep 02, 2019
Most times when I engage people (both IT and non-IT inclined) in discussions about software development and programming, most of them get it twisted. and when I tell then that programming is only a part(an important part) of the entire software development process then they are like how? So here is the how:

1. Computer science vs Software engineering - Having a degree in computer science does not make you a professional software developer although you may take some programming courses. But the goal of computer science is not about professional software development. Software engineering, on the other hand, focuses more on software development from a professional point of view so in addition to taking programming courses you also take courses focused on processes, methods, and tools for engineering high-quality software.

2. Software process framework - A foundation of the complete software engineering process. Software process framework includes five framework activities that are applicable to all software projects namely communication, planning, modeling, construction, and deployment with programming/coding falling under the construction activity.
