Top definition
Pejorative adjective for computer programmers or others with a technical skill-set that adhere to a "bro" or "cool" culture, often obnoxiously so.

This phenomenon arose circa 2010 when the proliferation of popular tech-themed movies such as "21", "The Social Network", and "Iron Man" and tech-celebrities such as Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg glamorized technical skills. As such those who often grew up as socially repressed outcasts or "nerds" due to their academic or technical aptitude and social ineptitude now found themselves in socially desirable class of society. This incited a once repressed demographic to become much more socially active despite social cluelessness, resulting in an obnoxious culture that tends to mimic stereotypical "jock", "bro", or "cool" culture in combination with the egotism, insensitivity, and terrible humor of "nerd" culture.

Brogrammer, noun., a bro who somehow learned to program, but would deny it in any social situation. A brogrammer does not have side projects and usually programs while listening to Dave Matthews Band, much to the irritation of his fellow programmers.
Noam: "Hey Jack, your a little late, can you rewrite this parser for me? It's not quoting HTML code."

Jack: *takes off Northface backpack and removes iPhone earbuds--Ants Marchin audibly playing* "Yea, lemme just get settled first."

Noam then comments on the IRC channel that Jack doesn't go on (because he thinks freenode is what happens at the bars on Thursdays at 5pm) and says, "man this intern jack is a real brogrammer, I'm glad he's gone at the end of month."
