I don’t know how I haven’t seen this before but it’s such a perfect skit
about software developers dealing with project managers and other non-dev
people.

Edit: Apparently, +Russell Holly shared it 10 months ago and neglected to
personally inform me.

Son of a mother fucking bitch. I’ve been a developer for 35 years. This,
even as a joke, has me screaming at the monitor.

Every.

Fucking.

I feel like this is me when I’m trying to explain to someone a pattern in
numbers that I see but they don’t.

It’s perfectly simple …

*Of course I can, I’m an expert.* Das passiert in etwa, wenn sich
Entwickler mit den Projektmanagern und Kunden zusammen setzen.

Great Mother of Christ. It’s funny but in a tooth-grindingly familiar way.

fozzibab says:

The next day: Brings in a gun, kills EVERYONE, smiles quietly to himself,
knowing he’s performed a vital service to humanity. Then he gets arrested
because HE’S the bad guy, right?!

FUCK!

James Lane says:

*The Expert*

Faced with the seemingly impossible task of drawing seven lines, the expert
must not only deal with the challenges of this project, but also a client
who doesn’t understand their *own* brief. On top of this, his own team
have misplaced priorities.

This hilarious scene often tickles me because of the worryingly
true-to-life scenario it depicts, that is the battle between clients, and
‘experts’.

I suspect this hits home for practically anyone who works in the creative
field.

Anton Arhipov says:

Old, but still good :)

Tomasz Kus says:

Project meeting in a pill 😉
If someone need, there are subtitles for it.

Lauris Beinerts says:

Polecam ten skecz. W pierwszym momencie jest bardzo śmieszny. …ale
pochwili zastanowienia to jest tragicznie prawdziwe i między innymi dlatego
tak jest na świecie………

As most here won’t know, making games is hard. Everyone is always in some
way complaining about the odd decisions made in games they play. This video
should give a good idea of what goes on at most big developers.

I know we’ve all seen this, but it makes me smile.

Are you “the” expert? Then, draw me red lines, 7, with transparent ink
please.

I was talking about this with Dave the other day but thought I would send

LOL, the accuracy.

Oldie but a goodie.

Meyer Mack says:

What kind of expert is this guy? Obviously they wanted the lines to be
orthogonal in a curved kitten-like 7-manifold. The client can’t be expected
to get all the jargon right.
