  1. Beginner programmers say things like:

    What languages do you know? I know HTML and C++!
    You’re not a software developer you’re a coder, you don’t have a CS degree!
    You’re not a coder, you’re a software engineer, you have a CS degree!
    But where do I actually write the code?
    That will definitely only take a week.
    This C program is almost done, only a few more errors before it’ll compile!
    Stackoverflow is for beginners
    The end of the project is the easiest part! Home stretch!
    Experienced programmers say things like:

    I’m good at web development, especially using the LAMP stack! I’ve also written some firmware in C
    I’m a software developer, software engineer, computer scientist, coder, programmer, and/or computer nerd, depending on who I’m talking to, what I’m talking about, and what the purpose of the conversation is.

    dude you can even use notepad who cares?
    I think it’ll take about a week, but who the f@#% knows, last time I said that it took 6 months!
    God damn it’s gonna be a long night, I JUST got this damn C program to finally compile an hour ago, barely dented the debugging 🙁
    I’d just like to thank Stackoverflow for all of the success related to my career, YOU DA REAL MVP!!!
    The first 20% of the project takes the first 80% of the effort, the last 20% of the project takes the last 80% of effort!
    Edit: many people have suggested my math is wrong on the very last point, but I can assure you I meant to say it that way!

    Edit 2: wow, my answers used to be so poorly written. I cringe looking at this, how did this become my most viewed answer??
