Almost weekend!😎

But first another iconic developers 😊

Special thanks: @theowlsden and @technoglot ðŸĶ„

Feel free to join and show your creativity!

Let's make the next one a monkey edition (🙈🙉🙊). 😎


ðŸĪ·â€â™‚ïļ The WOMM developer

Works On My Machine is their go to answer. While this is true (mostly) they usually forgot to commit the changes in their package.json (or something else that breaks the code outside their own machine...).

Habitat

Their own machine. The rest of the machines are not good enough for them. ðŸ˜ē

Best to ask for

What dependencies you're missing when his code doesn't work, again. 😅

Needs work on

Own up to their mistakes, keep calm when installing something new and do it the proper way. 😊


🐙 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 start-ups 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.

ðŸĪ‘ The Client's Butler

That person in the team, (sometimes a team lead) who's motto is: "The client is KING!". They tend to be very client-centric and say NO to whatever brings no value to the client. All else be damned, including the developer experience. ðŸ˜Ē

Habitat

This kind of developer is mostly found lurking around stakeholders and clients to obtain their wishes.

Best to ask for

What the client wants, they now every single wish by heart.

Needs work on

Accepting developer experience is king in getting the client what they wish for in time and with joy! 😍

🐒 The monkey see monkey do

The devs that basically just copy-paste a piece of code from the internet and use it in their projects. Why code if you can just Frankenstein something out of SO threads and tutorials?

Habitat

Crash courses, listicles on how to become a developer in 5 steps, and StackOverflow.

Best to ask for

The best crash courses they followed.

Needs works on

Less copy-paste, more understand the problem and create the solution themselves.

Finally one I can relate to! I'm most definitely the unfortunate fullstack and the description is exactly the situation I was in. ðŸĪĢ The one difference is that you can ask more than just the basics of frontend to me, in the end I'm still most of all a CSS lover.

Needs work on: Delegating tasks

Can't delegate tasks if you're the only dev in the team! 😜

ðŸĨŽ The leaker

Habitat

Very common in game development studios, and hardware-making companies like Intel, AMD, NVIDIA, and Apple.

Jumps to r/GamingLeaksAndRumours with a throwaway account and leak the game they are working on.

Best to ask for

Leaking information on an upcoming video game or hardware.

Needs works on

Not ruining their career by breaching NDAs.
