This shirt feels a bit off. It seems more like a non-techy view of the technical world. It has at least three different technical jobs mashed into one. If there's one thing I hate as a programmer, it's being asked to do technical support.

It is a lovely shirt, don't get me wrong, but it leaves me yearning for distinct remakes for IT and programming, with proper heraldry.

You all must not work with eclipse then...I am constantly trying to refresh my projects, then either restarting eclipse or rebooting my pc, and if all else fails I reinstall the project...
Unfortunately I forget to try these things first and usually only stumble upon it as I give up. It sure fixes some wonky issues.

Is that really a Linux nod or just the obligatory penguin on a Woot shirt?

I have in fact developed into a technical writer over the years, so the semi colon is a nice touch for this Pascal programmer from another time.... another place...

That's how it is though. If you know how to say C++, you must know how to work all the features documented and otherwise on a Kodak easy share camera. Can't change legend and lore.

Code Monkey? After 30+ years as a professional bit-wrangler, I think I'm more of a Code Silverback.

Course explaining how to read a flow chart is almost not worth it.

If only there had been an XKCD nod on this shirt, might have been enough for me to get it.

Now THAT's a code monkey stereotype (said the code monkey who comfortably wears mediums).

Mainframe code monkey buy one to point out why mainframes are better.

And SQL jockeys are pretty much of the same ilk:

I really love this shirt, even though my wearing it would be a lie. The monkeys are definitely my favorite part, and the color scheme.

The most "coding" I've ever done was when I accidentally deleted the entire contents of my Mac via terminal. I was trying to run a mod for Minecraft. The only positive outcome was my computer did run a lot faster after that.

Pathological programs! cried the terrified ex-code monkey
Every answer seems to lead me back to pi
I hate the brackets and the commas
The gazillion library sets
Too many subroutines just makes me wanna cry
Twenty thousand leagues under, an octopus squirt its ink
On a warm August morning, the artist known as Spiritgreen was born

I agree! I would love one with references to xcode, os x, etc. Another one for Visual Studio/windoze!

But I did love this one and bought it. This may be my second favorite shirt behind "Nobody's perfect". I will be telling all my coder friends about this one!

Great job!

Bought one, and convinced two other developers in my department to buy one each. We can all wear them at the same time, and look really cool. Right? That's cool, right?

Love this.

We borrowed a wide-format printer in our Engineering department to blow it up to about 30 inches wide, and have now hung it on the third floor of City Hall as you enter our IT area.

Has anyone else noticed that the design on this shirt is crooked?

I think mine is off by about five degrees. I asked for a replacement and it's the same way, so I assume it's the whole run, at least in size XL. YMMV.

Weird, can you send us a picture of both prints? We'll try to get this straightened out. Maybe the third time's a charm.

I got mine in a women's XL and the placement was fine.
