Favorite terms about web developers
A casual gray Friday like this, I was thinking about the best terms about web developers I’ve heard.
Some of my favorites are:
- Visual Studio Cowboy
- MS Luftwaffe
- Java Jockey
And, the number one favorite: HTML Whore!
Which ones do you like? Local language versions welcome, if you provide a translation. 🙂
haha, I totally agree with your favorite 😀
CSS Ninja ! (or any other * Ninja for that matter)
I know I've read the term "standards terrorists" somewhere but I can't recall where.
A client once called me a CSS Ninja – he can now count me as a friend for life 😉
I like when they call me simply "God". 🙂
The one I like the most is codemonkey, that definately describes the work I'm doing 😛
My co-worker came up with a punny one: Web Sourcerer
Here in Russia we call low-qualified php-programmers 'bydlo-coders', which could be translated as 'cattle-coders'
Thanks for the suggestions!
I do like "standards terrorists", since it's a perfect description of some people.
Code monkey was one of the given ones I should have had. Web Sourcerer was the clever one. 🙂
But out of all, I must really say that cattle-coding depicts some of my work duties… 🙂
My business card says Web Maestro. But my business partner calls me the "code cowboy" when I put in dangerous code just before we leave for the weekend.
Yeah, cowboy is always a good term. 🙂
I believe the correct term for a "standards terrorist" is actually "Standardista".
Viva la revolution!
Ha ha, absolutely.
