Ah, Google... Imagine a world of being a developer without you. Google and Stack Overflow are like my mom and dad helping me through my silly mistakes as a developer.
I'm not new either. I have been a developer for almost over 5 years now... and I am not afraid to admit that some of my Google searches would look silly.
I know, I am a horrible developer that has no idea what he is doing.
As a developer of 1 year to 20 years of experience. Getting a quick reference to something is arguably what our job is all about.
Devs, what was your last dev related Google Search?

"on duplicate index update"
This is something I learned about far too recently, considering how long I've been using MySQL. It turns out that when doing a bulk insert, you can have MySQL automatically update records on a key/index conflict. That way your bulk insert won't fail on duplicate records and you can insert/update in bulk in a single query.
ORM good or bad
I use Stackoverflow when I encountered something I can't solve. But google never use that before for solving specific problems
