📚 60+ Best Programming Memes for 2023
Memes that depict code and its mysterious ways
As you might expect of thinking rocks, we don’t always understand how or why they work. Code has a degree of autonomy about it that can both delight and frustrate.
QA vs devs memes
For many developers, their code is their labor of love. Unfortunately, that code will be used by others — in most cases, by paying customers — so someone needs to make sure that the code will work no matter how violently the users smack it around.
This is the job of quality assurance testers, who sometimes have strenuous relationships with developers because of this.
💡 Plaky Pro Tip
If you’re having trouble understanding some of these memes, perhaps it would help to get a general understanding of how software development works. This guide will help you do exactly that by walking you through the stages of a software development plan:
How programmers feel about users (and other non-programmers)
The brains of people who can teach rocks to think are wired differently from ordinary brains.
Consequently, features that developers feel are intuitive and simple to use and understand can end up feeling overwhelming and impossible for users who aren’t tech-savvy.
This can lead to developers imagining users in some hilarious ways as depicted in the following memes.
Programming languages be like
Code can be written in many different programming languages, each with its own eccentricities. Here are some ways in which particular programming languages drive developers insane.
Where developers get help from
Now we’re not saying that all developers steal code, but the very concept of stealing is seen a bit differently by the programming community than by most others.
Developers have grown several platforms to share and instruct their kin and code is easy to copy-paste from these platforms, like Stack Overflow and GitHub.
In some cases, this is perfectly fine. In others, not so much, but it still happens on occasion.
In either case, this added context should help those who aren’t in the know understand (and hopefully appreciate) the following memes.
