Fediverse, I need your help !
My manager aks me to define my job, with a name and I'm stuck at "I need time to think about it". My actual job name is "web developer", but it needs to be (much) more precise. "Frontend dev" is a bit narrow, "fullstack" seems to be a bullshit joke.
I do PHP backend dev, JS dev, CI/CD, install and configure softwares on Linux servers, do some automation scripts, use GIT…
Any idea ? Boost appreciated.
@Sp3r4z I mean, that's as full stack as it gets without any SQL involved.. Perhaps just web engineer?
@russdpale I forgot SQL, of course I also do that… It's obviously obvious.
So "fullstack" seems to be relevant, for you?
@Sp3r4z it could be, but web engineer almost seems more appropriate, you are most certainly doing dev and devops at the same time. Im a full stack dev and I don't touch servers or integration stuff, our devops (support) group does that.
@devnull But your also say "automation + scripting" is for sysadmins, but it's a part of my own job in fact. Maybe because I'm the only one (dev role in my company) able to manage GNU/Linux stuff… I don't really need someone to install OS, libraries and softwares on it… I don't need someone to (bash) script things… Logs are familiar to me… it's just part of my "job routine".
I can't even think asking someone for rsync things or why my code is 500 the server…
@devnull I see what you mean about "automation", for sure it's a nightmare without one… for all kind of jobs, to be honest.
I don't do sysadmin, even if I do some sysadmin tasks. It's a small part of my job, and it's mostly "basic" stuff. I just don't create the VM and initial base (because of sysadmin automatize tasks).
