What is the weirdest question your non-coders have ever asked you?


I am sure people have asked you very weird things like “have you ever hacked a government website”?, what was something that you remember?



I once worked as the only developer for a small company, and I was asked to build a tool that would capture the metadata from images that were uploaded and determine the location the image had been taken. Then connect to the Google Maps API and compare that location with a location on the map. My response was that I had no idea how to do that, or if it was even possible. Their response to me was, “Okay, well, do you think you can research it, and build it by the end of the day today?”



Not me, but someone once asked my boss at the end of a really long working day:

How can you work so many hours? Aren’t your hands super tired from all the effort?
