If you spend your days writing code, the simplest problems can be as irritating as a 404 page or a laptop with 3% battery.  To help the rest of the world really understand coders and their 99 problems, we spoke to our own wonderful team to come up with this list. (Spoiler alert – they didn’t have 99 coding related problems for us to share).


1. 404 pages are the stuff of nightmares; in fact it turns out coders do actually have tantrums about them.

2. When you have been working on a code for so long you forget how to use words.


3. When your friends ask ‘but what does code actually do?’

6. The fear of not being near a computer, laptop or some sort of mobile device. But what if something goes wrong?


7. The equally terrifying fear of your multiple screens and phones losing power.


8. The struggle of where to store all of your devices. So. Much. Stuff.
