    Is there a difference between programming and coding? Or are they simply terms for the same thing?

    If i wanted to write/program/make (you get what i'm saying) an application or program for my Android Phone, what's a good book?

    Ages ago I went to Edx.org. to attempt to learn about Python, just as a hobby and I got kinda far into but didn't complete the course. It reminded me of playing Portal 2 Custom Maps because it's like solving a puzzle from what I recall.

    Though the commands were confusing. "Like itersleft" or whatever. mini militia

    I tried a course on C++ from MiT online and fell asleep my 1st day into it.

    What's the difference between the languages and what are they good for? If someone could give me a rundown.

    Anyways, if yall could steer me in the right direction...

      Programming and coding are often used interchangeably, but there is a difference between the two terms. Programming is the process of designing a step by step plan that will make a computer do what you want it to. Coding is the process of translating that plan into a programming language.

      So, programming is abstract and conceptual, while coding is concrete and specific.
