I’ve often tried to explain exactly what I do to groups of people and usually end up getting somewhat of a blank stare in response. Either I tend to make it too simple: “I work as a missionary on the Internet” OR I make it too complicated: “I help to build, code and maintain the back-end PHP/MySQL based systems and API’s that enable our ministry to engage with website visitors who find us on the Internet.”
I found this video recently and thought it did a really great job of explaining some of the technical aspect of my work. AND it’s entertaining! The video is designed for new developers, but the first 3-4 minutes do an excellent job explaining a bit of what I do on a day-to-day basis. I think you’ll enjoy it. http://penny-arcade.com/patv/episode/so-you-want-to-be-a-developer-part-1

Seems like a good overview and some of that was hilarious. I paused on the frame that showed programing languages and though I don’t know much about them, I had to laugh at some of the images used.
Glad you liked it!
