The word derp actually derives from the acronym D.E.R.P which stands for the "Disgruntled Employee Retaliation Program" and is used when you are intentionally causing a job related derp. Derping is considered a verb.

The act of "derping" or "D.E.R.P-ing" can either be physical or verbal in nature and is always done intentionally... or maybe not if you're lucky.
Examples of derping are as follows:

1. Peter, Samir and I took the company car to lunch yesterday and in the act of derping we almost had all four wheels of the car off the ground. It was awesome!!!

2. You hate your job so much that you keep breaking the copy machine intenionally, but of course nobody knows this. ...Unfortunately, this will often lead you to overhear the statement "I hate this printer it never freaking works."

3. Someone hates their job at the Hamburger Hut so much that they like to tell people Hamburger Hut undercooks the beef patties just so people won't eat there.

Someone who is generally awkward. Stands around awkwardly and makes everyone around him tense. A derp often is the type that tries to do something cool/risky and fails horribly the first time.
Person 1: "Whoa he managed to crash his dad's car the first time he drove it?"
Person 2: "Yeah, he's a derp."

A word that can mean many different things; usually negative. It can be a noun, verb and adjective. Synonyms include stupid, retarded, idiotic, idiot, dumb etc...

Variations of the word include derpy, derped, derpette, derpity der hurrrr. Herp is also related to derp and usually follows derp in a derpy interjection. Herping is almost always a verb, and when in combination with derp it does not have to be negative.
Noun: "Wow, that guy is a derp"
Verb: "Wow, that guy just derped everything up"
Adj: "Wow, that guy is derpy..."

Misc examples:
Person A: "Derp de durrrr... herp derp?"
Person B: "Herpity derp hurrr... Derp derp?"
Person A: "Hurrr :/ "
