wait in your analogy are devs just car drivers? i figured they would be more like mechanics, or maybe modders, and the consumers of their products would be drivers.

Analogies only ever take you so far, but yeah if you're a dev and you're not actively developing (or modifying the internals of) your programming language, compiler or framework, yes then you are a user of that tool ... the "driver" so to speak :)

Maybe that's not a popular view, because we like to see ourselves as geniuses, but it's a practical and realistic one.
