Pictures from a developer’s life

A friend sent me this link that was composed from other links from other blogs. The origin is here and another here

Sorry for the brute copy-past, but it’s much easier to read as a whole – you can check the links for more…

When I show the boss that I have finally fixed this bug

When the project manager enters the office

When I’m deploying code to production

When I try to fix a bug at 3 in the morning

When my regex returned exactly what I expected

When a friend of mine asks me to fix his website built with Joomla

When I’m told that the module on which I have worked all the week will never be used

When the code that I have not tested on dev works perfectly in production

When the sales people announce they have sold our product to the customer

When I apply a new CSS for the first time

When sysadmin finally gives us the root access

When I launch my script for the first time after several hours of development

When I go off for the weekend while everyone else is still trying to fix bugs

When the app goes into beta and the first bug reports arrive

When the boss is looking for someone to urgently fix a difficult bug

When a thing that worked on Friday no longer works on Monday

When I return to development of my code that wasn’t commented

When a bug goes unnoticed during a presentation

When a newbie suggests to add a new feature to project

When the boss announces a bonus if the project is completed before the deadline

When I realize that I have been blocked for two hours because of a forgotten semicolon

When asked to lend a hand on a Friday afternoon

When the project manager suddenly looks on my screen

When the client tries to click on the mockups

When customer wants to change specification 2 days before pushing to production

When my script finally worked

When I am asked to continue work of a newbie colleague

When I’m told that my code is broken in production

When I find a solution without searching Google

When the intern tells me that “the tests are for those who can not program”

When I manage to replace 200 lines of the algorithm by only 10 lines

  1. Hahaha you’re so damn right about this! Perfect! What about “When I have conflicts after submitting code to the repository” and “When I realize I have to reimplement even the most basic functionality to a standard Windows-Forms-Element”?

    XD

  2. Very funny, ymmd.
    I was literally laughing out loud many times, which doesn’t happen very often, when I’m sitting all alone in front of my screen.

    Great work!

  5. “When the intern tells me that “the tests are for those who can not program””

    Hm? I don’t get this one. Then again, I’ve only worked as an intern.

  9. I completely agree with all of this… especially when someone breaks my coding when it’s finished and sent off, then monday it returns to me someones standing there like a high schooler talking to a student” I uhhh, I uhhhh, huh, uhhhh, broke it” like it’s a toy.

  31. Outstanding. A friend of mine led me here. And yes, I’m still working on my code too. Many of these I could relate to. Especially the cat in the tub.
