Is it bad that I refer to non-programmers as muggles?

    We need a better term because we're not wizards, we're technology masters

    How about calling programmers "mad hatters"? We have black hats, grey hats, white hats, red hats...

    @YouAreAPIRate and then the "muggles" can be no-hatters

    I mean I they are incapable of doing magic so 🤷‍♀️

    Are shitty developers squibs?

    Non programmers are bad guys, while programmers are nice guys

    @ribchinski be careful what you say about my family. True, they can be a pain in the ass, but sometimes they're good to have around.

    But they are "users", so in the end it pains me to watch them use technology (my father uses IE, had 3 antivirus programs and some sort of crapware)

    @YouAreAPIRate oi, I wasn’t trying to insult your family, lad!

    But “users” is a good word for non-tech people

    I usually mentally use "tavallinen kuolevainen" for non-techies. It's finnish and transalates roughly to "ordinary mortal".

    @nukasev but we’re mortals too though...

    Or are we?

    I know!

    We can call ourselves: Technophiles.

    And the non-techies: either Users, as mentioned above, or Technophobes.

    I'd call them decimals.
    We are the binaries.

    Would you refer to your doppelganger from a parallel universe as that?

    @Michelle i prefer the terms technophiles for programmers and users for the... others.
    The only downside there is is that the terms aren't direct opposites of each other

    @PonySlaystation and the mad ones are the ternaries (see malbolge)

    @YouAreAPIRate we already have it. The term is Nerd.

    @Jahhein that term doesn't even come close to the digital wonders we create everyday, nerd

    @YouAreAPIRate who you calling nerd, geek? Bet I can solve more CodeWars problems than you. 😑

    @Jahhein who're you calling geek, dork? Get back to me when you got more hackerrank-points than me.

    Nerd-figths, so intense

    I legit have 3,411 points...

    But who cares?! Because real developers use UVA Online Judge!

    Seriously, go check it out. Amazing website with better and more problems. No web editor to cheat in either. No outputs. You get it right or no beuno, punk.
