Dev Jokes to Start the Week

Having fun while developing is necessary for programmers and developers. No matter how much serious or tough the situation is, one should always take lightly when it comes to software development.

I am writing this post just to let everyone know that how much of fun one can have while coding and working as a Software Engineer. Some of the jokes in this post have been inspired by my real life incidents and some of them are just copied from memes. Trust me! These Dev jokes are funny and full of sarcasm and there is at least one joke for almost everyone who codes (even for those who have a coder friend).

I have divided these jokes in 4 categories. I hope you all can relate with it. So without wasting time let’s get started:

  • Problem and Challenges

Programmers Problem

Dev 1:

Sometimes, I don’t know why my codes does not compile. And sometimes when my code does run, I don’t know why. 🤣🤣🤣 

Dev 2:

99 little bugs in the code, 99 bugs in the code, 1 bug fixed. Whoo! I fixed a bug, compiles again, 100 little bugs in the code. 🤣🤣🤣

Dev 3:

My code was not working yesterday but it is working now. Interesting isn’t it! 🤣🤣🤣

Dev 4:

People think that I am a hot shot, hardcore programmer. They think I am the next Mark Zuckerberg while all I do at work is delete few lines of code. 🤣🤣🤣

Trust me! We all face challenges in programming. It is not an easy task. We all ask ourselves the same question again and again but we love it. Every time we fail, we learn something new. So, instead of feeling stressed just embrace it and go with the flow (I mean Stack Overflow!).

Manager: Welcome all. Tell us about what you do in a line.

Dev 1: I wear glasses because I can’t C#. Hello everyone, I am a Java Developer.

Dev 2: I will not let anyone see the skies. Hello everyone, I am a Cloud Developer.

Dev 3: I will not let anyone create a new feature without permission. Hello everyone, I am a Software Test Engineer.

Nobody: I will not code a line but I will make your life miserable and will poke you to finish your work on time. Now tell me who am I? 🤣🤣🤣

You will meet a lot of developers and managers down the road. Most of them will have a different coding style, different mindset and a lot of them will force to push your boundaries and coding ability. You will be tempted by new ideas and new projects but the key is to keep calm and get the job done. Remember – Coding is not a job, but a lifestyle.

Manager: What is GraphQL?

Dev: A Query language for APIs.

Manager: What?

Dev: It may be a solution to our web app problem.

Manager: Fix it within 2 days.

Dev: What have I done! 🤣🤣🤣

  • Knowledge and Humour

Developing is simple and it is easier for people who understand it. It ain’t rocket science, it is just based on few rules. Follow the rules and documentation and you will be the most successful coder you know.

Knock knock!

An async function

Me: Who’s there?

Me Who’s there??

Me: I asked Who’s there??? 😡😡😡

You know, some jokes are sarcastic while some are funny but the best thing about almost every dev joke is that it contains a lot and lot of humour in it. Think about it.

Dev jokes are made out of real life incidents and sometimes, it can really be funny for you but annoying for someone who does not understand your profession.

Dev: if (traffic == null) {print(“soon”);}

Girlfriend: Come quick, I’m wearing nothing

Me: Ok. Hit it. I am very excited to hear a TCP joke.

Alexa: Sorry, your connection has timed out.

Alexa: Hi, would you like to hear a TCP joke… 🤣🤣🤣        

  • Sarcasm and Savage

Ohh! This is one of my favourites. I love these kind of jokes. We all know the pros and cons of being a developer but did you know that we make fun of other developers too. There is always a healthy competition between developers though. So don’t take it too seriously. Just enjoy!

Me: Sounds amazing! You look like a cool person, what are you doing?

Nobody: I am doing my work on Microsoft Excel and I am reading about statistics and linear regression.

Me: 🤣🤣🤣 Goodluck!

If you are a competitive programmer and code in C++ and having a feeling of missing out (FOMO) then, this next joke is for you guys. Cheers!

Dev: You lazy Dev! Don’t you know C++ is strongly typed.
