Hey, Canadian Web Developers! Does This Sound Familiar?


Over the past few weeks, I've been working hard on the content for the Web Developer track of Microsoft Tech•Days Canada 2008. Looking at the lighter side of this space, I took a break to come up with a few observations.

"You Might be a Web Developer..."

  1. If you overuse AJAX for household chores, you might be a Web developer.
  2. If you think "passing the Acid test" doesn't refer to a drug problem, you might be a Web developer.
  3. If you know that WYSIWYG isn't a military installation in Iceland, you might be a Web developer.
  4. If you respond to confusing questions with "HTTP 500", you might be a Web developer.
  5. If you doodle angle brackets on napkins, you might be a Web developer.
  6. If your first question is "Where's the API?" when a site launches, you might be a Web developer.
  7. If you own more than ten domain names, you might be a Web developer.
  8. If your "Yo Mamma" jokes include the phrase, "padding: 200%", you might be a Web developer.
  9. If the phrase, "I can program HTML" bugs you, you might be a Web developer.
  10. If there's no place like 127.0.0.1, you might be a Web developer. (Credit to the folks at ThinkGeek.com)
  11. If you write "HTTP 301" on misaddressed letters, you might be a Web developer.
  12. If your heroes include Tim Berners-Lee, Brendan Eich, Hakon Wium Lie and Bert Bos, you might be a Web developer.
  13. If the phrase, "Lynx FTW!" makes you smile, you might be a Web developer.
  14. If you're frustrated by the fact that the human eye can see more than 256 colours, you might be a Web developer.
  15. If your best pick-up line is "#you + #me { margin: 0; }", you might be a Web developer. (Credit to Kevin Lawver. Well done, sir.)
