"Oh they just work with computers."
This one doesn't bother me as much.In fact, quite the opposite: I think we as developers put too much emphasis on how important our career is and how it is tied to our personality.
For example, my step-dad is a truck driver. No one, except other truck-drivers care about what model of rig he drives.
All that said, I make it a point that I will not be my friends and family's on-call IT guy :P
Yes thats second on my list. Being roped into salvage a 5 year old desktop for a family friend . First thing I say is buy a new one they insist their not going too. I just install ccleaner run it and say all set !
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
