Is code technology?

Had an argument with a colleague, can be considered an improvement code - improvement technology. The idea of the word "technology" means any equipment, apparatus, means of communication. And if you improve only one code in a hardware-software complex, the technology itself will not improve.

On the other hand, Wikipedia is given a complex definition, not one that confuses even more.

On the third hand, if the word "technology" to include too many, it loses its meaning because even the replacement of the programmer (yet without improving the code) shall be improvement of technology. Or replacement of chairs in the workplace - will also be.

Technology is the technical process that produces the final product.
Technology (from al-Greek. τέχνη — art, skill, ability; λόγος — word, "thought", "meaning", "concept") — a set of methods and tools to achieve the desired result[1]; in a broad sense — the application of scientific knowledge to solve practical problems[1][2]. Technology includes the methods of work, its mode, the sequence of actions[3].
