Programmer Tasks Defined

What are the most common tasks performed by a corporate programmer?  There is a list posted here.

Particularly appropriate, in my mind are the following items from the list:

  • Explaining downtime to users/higher ups
  • Contributing solutions to strangers’ problems
  • Searching for existing code that does what you want, maybe without knowing what that’s called
  • Installing, configuring, and testing a codebase then finding it won’t work for you
  • Googling error messages
  • Figuring out how to shoehorn together codebases that weren’t designed to coexist
