Programming = Placing instructional set's in order to achieve desired results
Coding = Typing with text editor to do programming.
Yeah! so placing Construct 2 instruction sets are programming, according to this definition. I like it
As far as coding goes. Code just needs to be cryptic to be conceited "code". Does not have much to do with the application that created it. You can create code by drawing dots and dashes in the dirt. (Morise code)
It does not always require a text editor . Moris code does not even have to be visual. You can relay moris code just by tapping on something.
Coding and programming are just such broad terms, it is impossible to make an honest statement without contradicting yourself with another meaning of the word.
Can construct games without using C#, or COBAL code.
Can make games without using the assembler, or FORTRAN programming.
Can do games without using construct 2's style of coding.
Can make games without programming them with the construct 2's language.
No skill or learning required.
If you are making a level in Super Mario maker on the Wii, and you designate how to move a platform, then congratulations! You have successfully programmed a platform! You are a super Mario maker platform programmer. You did it without a text editor, and you did it without learning C#.
If you set your alarm clock to wake you up at 6:00AM, then congratulations. You just programmed your alarm clock to wake you up at the appropriate time!
You used the alarm clocks "code system" to push the buttons in the right sequence to get your desired result.
