I'm a developer who works from home and I get alot of graphics, apps and code that I need to backup. Thhe critical data is about 10GB and all the rest is about 100GB. Should I buy a tape device? Or maybe blue-ray burner? Remote backup? Buy a machine and install rsync and Ubuntu?

Since we don't know anything about

I only recommend to think about offsite backup if this is technically feasible (internet speed). A tape drive on your desk or the backup machine in the basement won't help you if your house is on fire. Everything else is up to you.
(BTW: Please go through your older questions and accept answers if appropriate)
I always use jwz's Backup PSA as a starting point for these conversations. It's mostly disaster recovery, and doesn't consider version control or incrementals. But honestly, if you do versioning right, then the version control repository is just more data that you need to keep backed up.
