As software engineers, the machines we write code on becomes an extension of our identity. Whilst with desktop machines there are many ways to make your setup unique, with laptops, your options are a little more limited. And that is why many developers turn to stickers to make their machines unique. Here are the 5 Kinds of Laptop Owners - Sticker edition:

1. The #NoStickers club

2. The Minimalist

This person either:

3. The Classic Laptop Owner

4. The Overlapping Stickerer

The great debate - what do you do when you run out of room for new stickers? Do you stop sticking stickers on your laptop, your masterpiece complete? Or do you start overlapping the stickers 😱.
