I would argue that "web development" is a specialization of "software development". If you're writing code (PHP, or Perl, or Java), you have a chance of doing "software development." One of "web development's" key differentiators is that it is often done in the context of a web server or application server, and you're dealing with "the web", so wrangling with HTTP becomes important. Good luck!

Normally I'll post my own thoughts on the matter, but in this case the wikipedia entries sufficiently explain the differences.

Programmer/ code-monkey
Software Developer
Web-Developer and Web-Development

I don't recognize a difference between "software" and "web" development.

There is data, algorithms, and networks. Mix and match with protocols and whatnot however suits your needs best.




Also do not recognize a difference between the word "programmer", "developer", etc. Just a name game.

i define programmer as the one who knows the language and he just does programming.

and the developer is the one who knows the languages and also knows what to develop.

this is just my opinion, but in the real world i also find both that words have the same meaning.

How can someone "just do programming" if they don't know what to develop? Doesn't make sense.

If someone hands you the precise Design and technical specs and diagrams of some software, you are merely following it and coding to that design. That is what i meant.

"Developer" is synonymous with "Designer"

"Developer/Designer" and "Programmer" are not the same.

Software Programmer does not have design skills and only follows directions.

Software Designer does have design skills and programming skills, but does not have engineering skills.

Software Engineer does have design, programming, and engineering skills.

Software Architect has all of above combined with real experience in all areas, and great soft-skills, e.g. writing, speaking, teaching, etc.
