I would like to know which code is used to customize Sharepoint. I mean Sharepoint comes with built-in functions that don't need any programming skills, but those functions are limited, and can be enhanced by programming.
I am not sure if the programming language used is C#, or VB.net or else for this purpose.

I also wonder what can Sharepoint designer software   do more than just what we get from Sharepoint server ?

Thanks

It is possible to code a heap of different SharePoint components using any of the .NET languages (but C# is most popular I've only used VB.NET on a single SharePoint project). Custom code can provide new web parts, actions that fire when list items change, complex functionality within pages lot's of things, the sky is the limit.

SharePoint Designer is good for making UI changes without code such as this Dashboard example;

You have to be a little careful before embarking on such customizations though. It needs to be maintained by someone and the cloud model i.e. Office 365 doesn't allow these sort of customizations so if you considered moving there in future your customizations would be left behind.
