I saw “understands the importance of semantic code” on a job posting and don’t know what that means. It was for a WordPress dev position too.
Semantics is the study of meaning, and semantic code is essentailly code that carries it’s own meaning. The best example i can give of this is using semantic HTML tags like
<article> rather than just
Sounds like a bougie way of saying clean code. Calling it semantic code makes it sound like a altogether different type of language or method of writing code.
Thanks for the response.
