Describe Your Job With a GIF!

・1 min read

HAPPY Hump Day!!! Thought this might be something fun to do to break up the week. What GIF would you use to describe your job and why?

Here is the GIF I would use to describe what it's like being a Site Reliability Engineer.

Often when we speed one thing up the load transfers to another. You put out one fire and you start one somewhere else. Sometimes it's a little hectic, but I wouldn't have it any other way! :D

Let's see your GIFs!

HAHAHA I was waiting for someone to pull out an IT Crowd GIF. Such a good show!

 

Can't argue with that. It is one of my all time favourite shows. :)

 
 
 

XKCD Good Code flowchart

I have dozens of these in my head, each for a different aspect of an app.

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Going to have to bend the rules and use two GIFs to cover all use cases.

Any client facing developer will feel this when going through ridiculous, nonsensical amends.

It's not a gif but I did make it for my job. Some days are better than others...

Sometimes you are and then other times, 2 days later, "No, really, this time I am close!" 😂

 
 

Waiting for stuff to get signed off like...

I thought in this very gif, just checking nobody posted it before me... ✅

 

I was scrolling down the comments, waiting for this one to pop up. :-)

 
 

what would you say you do here?

This would be mine. Not a lot of devs to work with and they’d be the only ones to get what I do.

 

GREAT movie!!! The guys I work with got me to watch it for the first time last year, not I constantly pull PR GIFs from it.

 
 
 
 
 
 

Watching the barely-ordered chaos as a Data Scientist and Software Engineer at a startup.

LOL I have not seen that meme before but I LOVE it!!!

To get the image to render try ![](image_url)

 

Hey Jan! Our comment form is in markdown so to add an image, you'll need this syntax: ![alt text](image-url)

 

This dialog itself tells more about software development than the image posted (or intended to be posted).

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Me in a startup to constantly try different stuff to learn by doing.

What tools do you use to self-manage your projects?
