Software developer - Deals with the development of "heavy" client software, software that is installed on the operating system. A software developer knows how to reproduce interfaces, manage the data entered by the user, process this data through different algorithms in order to solve a problem or propose a functionality to the end user.

Mobile Developer - Develops applications for mobile devices, such as phones and tablets, which require specific knowledge. The difference lies in the execution platform. The mobile has specific characteristics and constraints such as screen size, touch interaction, battery, operating system, sensors…

Web Developer - The web developer's goal is to bring the web designer's models to life. A Web Developer does not need graphic skills. His objective is to reproduce with code the visuals created by the person in charge of the design.
