A programmer programs,
A painter paints,
A pilot pilots,
A inventor invents,
A sculptor sculpts,
A writer writes,
A sailor sails

What do all these have in common? Each only needs the right to prefix their name with “Doctor” and point at a plaque on the wall, before they may philosophize before students and profess to doing anything in class!

Programming a computer is as much related to the business of developing software as piloting an air plane is to the business of dropping bombs. Uniquely so when you look at the typical software product :-o.

If the words noun, verb, and dictionary mean nothing and you happen to be an American, you seriously must have slacked off through the elementary school grades more than I did ^_^.
