The new iconic developers is here!

Thanks @technoglot , @theowlsden and @nefomemes
Keep it up!

I hope there will be three more in the comments so we can continue this list 😊😊

Maybe some ideas:

🏹 The Bug Buster

Name says it all: that person on the team that is a master in bug squashing. No pesticides needed: their eyes are enough. No bug is safe from them!

Habitat

They live inside IDE's and have static code analysis for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Code quality is their utmost priority!

Best to ask for

Advice on how to exterminate bugs. They can sniff them from miles away! πŸ‘ƒπŸ»

Needs works on

Working on actual features! Squashing bugs is important, but we've got a product to ship! πŸ“¦These features won't take care of themselves!

πŸŽ… The tools Santa

Do you have a problem you don't know how to solve? They have a tool for you.

Habitat

Your everyday office, forums, anywhere really. If you have a question, they are there to answer with a tool (a new software, library, etc).

Best to ask for

An over-engineered solution to a problem. They have experience with a whole lot of tools.

Needs works on

Tone it down a bit. Not everything needs to be solved with a new tool.

😳 The branch breaker

Look out! This developer will break your branch. A mistake like running git reset HEAD when they should have used git reset --soft HEAD is not uncommon..

Habitat

Mostly found behind a terminal looking like πŸ˜₯. Searching for a fix for the made mistakes, hoping no one will ever find out what they did.

Best to ask for

Helping you fix git mistakes, they’ve been there and know how to get you out!

Needs works on

Admitting their mistakes instead of (trying to) cover them up.

πŸ™ The unfortunate full-stack

They know the whole stack of a company. Not because they want to work as a full-stack, but because they have a small team.

Habitat

You find them mostly in startups and scaleups. But you can also find them in specific departments of a mid-size company.

Best to ask for

Advice on how you can implement a piece of logic. They most probably did something similar once upon a time. Oh, and about the frontend, ask them the basics.

Needs works on

Delegating tasks. If they have a small team, they need to share the responsibilities, not take everything on themselves.

This developer will break your branch.

Been there, done that🀣. I wonder how many devs mess up a branch merge on a daily.πŸ€”

That's just a frustrating thing. I still need to check my gist of git commands from time to time to avoid conflicts.πŸ˜…
