Programming vs Coding

What should be the difference between these two terms, Any special answer through anybody can understand it clearly.

  • Many people just use the terms interchangeably.

    "Programming" would suggest the entire process of creating a program - including analysis, design, coding, debugging, documentation, maintenance, etc

    "Coding" would suggest just the process of writing the code.

    An analogy might be "architect" vs "bricklayer"

    Sadly, there does seem to be ab over-emphasis on just "coding" - without the attendant skills of analysis, design, problem-solving, debugging, etc ...
