    What do developers do all day?

    I was asked this questions:

    What do developers do all day other than drink Mountain Dew?

    It was actually a serious question. How would you answer it (at a high-level)? What do you do all day? Do you sit in a cube writing code all day? Obviously you also spend a few minutes reading and/or writing on discussion forums.....

    10% write code
    30% debug code
    30% write help/documentation
    40% look on the 'net for samples of how that darn API works.

    yes that's 110% ! Always on overdrive.

    All advice is offered in good faith only. All my code is tested (unless stated explicitly otherwise) with the latest version of Microsoft Visual Studio (using the supported features of the latest standard) and is offered as examples only - not as production quality. I cannot offer advice regarding any other c/c++ compiler/IDE or incompatibilities with VS. You are ultimately responsible for the effects of your programs and the integrity of the machines they run on.

    Rejecting requirements as contradictory to each other or unclear 30%...
    Debugging is twice as hard as writing the code in the first place.
    Therefore, if you write the code as cleverly as possible, you are, by
    definition, not smart enough to debug it.
