Developers are aliens from another planet with a whole set of languages and systems for communication of their own.
I think our Toby might be from another planet, but that doesn’t make him any less useful.
We are lucky enough at Full Circle to have our own in-house Developer, Toby. This is one of the things that makes our company quite unique and special. Although Toby talks to his computer in code, he is completely understandable and enjoys his brews as much as the next human. He can create things that most of us couldn’t dream of. He can find technical solutions to everyday problems. One of his codey concoctions will more than likely be able to save you and your company time and money. Plus you are extra lucky, as Toby has taught primary school children and even ME(!) how coding works. This means he clearly has no problem talking in a jargon-free, easy to understand way.
He knows he is cleverer than you, and won’t be offended if you ask him to re-explain something. Developers are actually pretty useful & cool creatures. The ones I have met aren’t fearsome with scales but happy to assist and solve problems in any technical way they can.
