Already twelve iconic developer types created ๐Ÿ˜Ž
I noticed a lot of types were recognized by the readers, so I came up with the following questions for you:

What developer type(s) do you relate to the most?
What developer types do you have in your team?
What developer types could you use in your team?
What is your favorite iconic developer type?

If, by thinking about this, you get some inspiration to write a new iconic developer profile please leave it in the comments!

2) ๐Ÿค  The cowboy
3) ๐Ÿคช The funny one

4) ๐Ÿค“ The perfectionist
5) ๐Ÿฆ„ The Unicorn
6) ๐Ÿšซ Doctor no

7) ๐Ÿน The Bug Buster

10) ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ The WOMM developer
11) ๐Ÿ™ The unfortunate full-stack
