Q: Qual é a diferença entre Jack is a game developer and is writing the code for a video game e Jack is a game developer and is writing a code for a video game ?
A: In the context of programming, code is an uncountable noun, so it is ungrammatical to say “a code”.

If you don’t want to use the definite article “the”, then you can say instead:

Jack is a game developer and is writing code for a video game.”

Or

Jack is a game developer and is writing some code for a video game.”

Both of these still sound natural. These options give me the impression that Jack is only writing some of the code, and there are other people working on it as well. But the distinction is a little vague, and you could probably use any of the three options in most situations.

Who is Jack?
A: Jack does not mean people.

Maybe sometimes someone will use it that way, but it is not the normal meaning for "Jack". If someone does use it, it is because it is a common name - lots of Westerners are called "Jack". But you could also use other names in that way if you really wanted to. "John", "Jill", "Jane".

Eg. "There are lots of Jill's over there" might mean "there are lots of women over there". But Jill does not normally mean "women" either.
