Haha I use the word patent to mean obvious because I’m a bit weird and think I used to confuse it with blatant so that puts an interesting slant on Yr reply

I am a developer, mostly web stuff, with a few non-developer responsibilities on the side because my company doesn’t really understand the concept of someone who “just” does tech stuff.

I also have a special developer laptop and it’s the biggest, loudest and heaviest laptop I’ve had this century. pretty quick though.

I am so here for this casual Hank-Scorpio-burning-with-a-laugh of @epimer

God my 6 year old W530 is such a beast. 5kg including the brick-like charging transformer block. I think it was the last laptop to have a full i7 in it before the slightly slower but more power efficient ones came along.

Hard to know what you mean about ‘non-developer’ stuff but I think it’s probably good to have a wider job than purely dev. Like interacting with customers gives you good perspective, writing documents for other teams helps improve your communications etc. On my side I have had to learn a chunk about running Servers and how to debug issues in them which isn’t really my job but so often if you have to wait for the guys whose job it technically is you delay your work and it’s also a bit annoying for everyone else expecting things to get done.

we’re a bit of an oddity in our department in that i work for a large professional services firm in a team that specialises in remediation and other similar services, and we have our own IT team cos one day way back some guy built something in Access and it helped out so they just expanded on that. but cos my team just kind of happened out of nowhere, there’s no concept of having different job titles or being evaluated against different metrics or whatever, so i’m officially a Senior Manager but like fuck could i manage projects or programmes like all the other SMs in my department. so at the end of the year i get marked on how much work i’ve sold to clients, or how i’ve worked with clients, and i don’t do this so i get fucked over compared to “real” SMs. it’s great fun :man_shrugging:

i do like to think that my team is good at treating people equally regardless of gender, but we do have the slight issue of having a hugely male dominated team. it’s getting slightly better as time goes on, was 100% male when i started in the team back in 2010 and now i’d guess it’s maybe 85:15 male:female, which is better but still not good enough.
