I've got no knowledge at all in programming, so you gotta explain the difference between programming and coding in very easy to understand words. Such as explaining to a non-programmer, what's programming and coding. I'd like to know more about them.

They're interchangeable to a degree.

I tend to use them as follows:

  • Coding: Throwing together any code - HTML, CSS...
  • Programming: Making things work.

That's pretty much how I'd sum it up too. Both are fairly interchangeable really, but programming is also used widely when configuring other equipment such as pager systems, telephony equipment and more that doesn't actually require any writing of code.

Pagers are small devices that alert the wearer of a small text message, or that someone is trying to get hold of them.
From Wikipedia:

Code:
a small radio device, activated from a central point, which emits a series of bleeps or vibrates to inform the wearer that someone wishes to contact them or that it has received a short text message

Oh, it's just my first time hearing of them. Thanks for the info.
