If you only have 30 laptop stickers and 20 funko pop dolls, are you even a real fullstack ninja/rockstar?

    I was kinda amused when I saw something like 'developer laptop stickers' for sale on Amazon.

    I made a joke about that and then the devs I mentioned it to all went and bought them....

    I was really trying to say how silly I thought that was but ... well they were happy so I didn't say anything more about it.

    I particularly like how they habe LESS and SASS, Gulp and Grunt, and a sticker that just says "CODE"

    Like do you get a free sticker whenever you install a package or something?

    I personally love a clean feel. Once I was considering a nice sticker which I got and the next day saw a friend buy dev-sticker-pack from Amazon. Whole thing became yuck for me.

    Never got that whole thing about sticker bombing your laptop. If two consultants show up and one of them has a laptop full of stickers and the other doesn't I know which one I feel is the more professional one.

    Maybe I'm just old, bitter and sad. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    @devdiddydog I started putting stickers on so I can identify my bag and its contents if stolen. Long stretch ever seeing it again, but I can uniquely identify it.

    No stickers for me.

    I feel the same way as @devdiddydog: it feels unprofessional and a little childish.

    I much prefer keeping my lappy clean.

    I've got stickers from the museums I've visited in a professional context and a single one of Anna and Elsa... I like to have it show a little personality and reflect things I've done... I'm flashing devRant in some places, but not on my work gear ;)

    When it starts to look like a bus stop vandalized by teens with the same quantity based obsession over languages, frameworks, and technologies as HR people writing job postings, it gives off a feeling that you're spending more time showing than knowing any of them...
