What will your day in the office look like?

You’ll work on developing a new feature for a couple of hours and then it’s lunchtime. Over lunch in the canteen, you hear about a cool new 3D model and you think about 3D printing it later at home. After lunch, you have a meeting with a couple of developers to discuss the functionality of a new feature. You extend the automated tests that will be run after this night’s software build. And before you leave home, you review some work from one of your peers.
