We know that being a developer is an experience… different from that of the common mortals.
We wanted to review here with GIFs the main highlights that you will surely find in your spectacular and wonderful day to day.
Thinking like a dev and living like a dev: Two sides of the same coin that not many understand 😉
When you get ready to show your boss how you fixed a bug
We have only one piece of good advice to give you: Never explain to your boss how you fixed that bug 🐞
When I upload a code snippet to production
Are you sure that your code is perfect to upload it to production?
more or less… I upload it and see what happens.
When you accept an unrealistic deadline
I want it compiled by 8 am, your boss tells you. And you just give a timid “Yes” while crying inside.
Inspiration comes when it comes
When the universe made the devs, it went a bit overboard with the early morning productivity thing, so you end up changing your schedule and having a code party every night 🤷♀️
The good morning rally
Getting up early, what’s that, do you eat?
Yeah, that’s the thing about snacking on code all night, in the morning you don’t even know what your name is.
When I’m asked if I tested the code before uploading it
The question, “Have you tested the code before uploading it to production?” should always be answered with a loud and clear “Of course!”, and proceed to pray.
When you test your script for the first time after hours working on it.
17 hours on a complex script, it seems to be going well, maximum excitement. The time comes to test it… spoiler: it goes wrong.
When something that worked on Friday, stops working on Monday.

Everything is under control, and with this CSS we will give an aesthetic touch to this web page really fabulous… you’ll see. That’s what you tell your boss, before you show him/her the final result:
The day you get paid

When marketing shows me the leads that have been obtained thanks to my code
Who doesn’t love marketing people? Lovely people. Until it’s time to share the credit for the leads obtained with your code 👇
