HAPPY Hump Day!!! Thought this might be something fun to do to break up the week. What GIF would you use to describe your job and why?

Here is the GIF I would use to describe what it's like being a Site Reliability Engineer.

Often when we speed one thing up the load transfers to another. You put out one fire and you start one somewhere else. Sometimes it's a little hectic, but I wouldn't have it any other way! :D

Let's see your GIFs!

HAHAHA I was waiting for someone to pull out an IT Crowd GIF. Such a good show!


Can't argue with that. It is one of my all time favourite shows. :)


XKCD Good Code flowchart

I have dozens of these in my head, each for a different aspect of an app.


Going to have to bend the rules and use two GIFs to cover all use cases.

Any client facing developer will feel this when going through ridiculous, nonsensical amends.




Sometimes you are and then other times, 2 days later, "No, really, this time I am close!" 😂


what would you say you do here?

This would be mine. Not a lot of devs to work with and they’d be the only ones to get what I do.


GREAT movie!!! The guys I work with got me to watch it for the first time last year, not I constantly pull PR GIFs from it.


Do you remember the name of the movie? I have never seen and am curious to watch it


I can hear him saying the line in my head... I nearly spit coffee on my monitor when I saw this. 😂


BAHAHAHA I have never seen this one and I love it!


Watching the barely-ordered chaos as a Data Scientist and Software Engineer at a startup.



Me, when the Sales Guy emails saying he hasn't seen his order processed, and it's because I'm fixing a bug.

Nothing To See Here

Hey Jan! Our comment form is in markdown so to add an image, you'll need this syntax: ![alt text](image-url)


This dialog itself tells more about software development than the image posted (or intended to be posted).


I LOVE this one and have no idea how I've never found it before.

I'm a data engineer and this might be the best GIF I've ever seen for my job.
