A Code monkey is a computer programmer or other person who writes computer code for a living. This term may be slightly derogatory, meaning that this developer can write some code but is unable to (or not supposed to) perform the more complex tasks of software architecture, analysis, and design. It is usually applied to junior programmers or programmers hired in the USA. source
So, yes, but it is not as bad as you make it sound. It sounds like you are more scared of being a "script kiddie". Reusing code is not bad if you understand what it is doing. If there are good tutorials out there that satisfy what you need, you should not be spending your time re-inventing the wheel.
I think the real question is if you like Fritos, Tab and Mountain Dew .
