The Reality of a Developer's Life - in GIFs, Of Course

· IoT Zone

The IoT Zone is brought to you in partnership with ThingWorx. Explore the ThingWorx Developer Zone and learn how to rapidly develop IoT applications.

I'm going to try to illustrate the reality of a developer's life. This post is a translation of another post written in Spanish.

When you upload something to the production environment:

When you solve a problem without Googling:

When you close your IDE without saving the code:
When you try to fix a bug at 3AM:
When your regular expression returns what you expect:
When my boss told me that the module I've been working on will never be used:
When I show my boss that I've fixed a bug:
When I upload a code without tests and it works as expected:
When marketing folks show developers what they've sold:
The first time you apply a CSS to a web page:
When the sysadmin gives you root access:
When you run your script the first time after several hours working on it:
When you go on weekend and everyone else is at the office trying to fix all the issues:
When your boss finds someone to fix a critical bug:
When you receive extra pay if your project ends before deadline:
When something that worked on Friday doesn't work on Monday:
When you develop without specifications:
When your boss tells you that "tests are for those who don't know how to code":
When you update a database script and note that you have deleted the whole database:
Have you ever had one of these experiences? I hope so :D If not, you may not be a developer ;)
