    Programming and Web development, both involve coding. Programming is the process of writing a computer program. A program is a small piece of software that executes certain predefined logic to get the required result. Web development is a bit different term than programming. Web development’s main focus is web content creation along with custom designing and development approaches. Once the programmer’s work is done then the web developer looks after the maintenance. But Software Development is quite tougher than Web Development.

    Both are good. Software development is focused on creating computer programs using programming languages, web development also uses computer code to create user-facing software, in the form of websites. Mobile development requires different coding languages than web developers

    Both are important terms but It's totally depends on you. what's your interest and what you want to be a programmer or web designer.

       Hi. There was an entire series of commercials about this same topic back in the 90's ...

    You may have seen them on some of those commercials flashback shows :

       1st guy : "Tastes great"

       2nd guy : "Less filling"

       1st guy : "Tastes great"

       2nd guy : "Less filling"


       It truly does depend on whether Yo like doing one more than the other, but if You're deciding from a money end on day one of choosing a future path ...

       Keep in mind that a Web developer doesn't just write software that works on all computers they also have to make it compliant (Plays well) with the networking platform it runs through / over / on.

       That not only means more time & school & a longer set of certifications, but dealing with extremely hardheaded bosses who are stuck to what they've been using for decades as a server most of the time, because changing platforms is extremely cost-consuming & requires re-training the entire staff..

    They are BOTH programming. Web development tools tend to automate things for certain approaches of web based issues. No reason you can't do BOTH. The tend to compliment each other.

    Well, web-development is increasing automated. And a good coder can probably also do decent web development. So I'd say CS is better.
