Definitely not... Developer, and a high resolution makes it easier on the eyes with a small font. A character 3mm high is much easier to read if drawn with more pixels.
So with a higher resolution i can use a much smaller font, without straining my eye's, allowing me to have around 20-25% more lines of code on screen at any single time. Another use is that i can fit a editor on one side and a browser/document on the other allowing me to switch between reading documentation and writing code without switching workspaces etc. Just read up about the benefits of having 2 monitors for the same purpose.
