None of those are especially "developer" related. They apply to most jobs.

Maybe these -

  • you will be confined to a chair staring at a screen for an inhumanely large period of your existence
  • you are an imposter, your got your current job pretending you knew something you didnt, your next job will depend on pretending you know something you dont
  • so you will never have a work day where you dont need to learn something
  • and you will never have a work day where you dont forget something you learned the day before
  • you will nurture fear and loathing of one or more big tech companies
  • you have a high probability of being on some spectrum
  • your mum will never understand what job you do
