【简评】老程序员的反思

直接贴原文作者的Humble Advice(卑微的建议):

  1. 目标:不那么资深的专家,有个人生活,至少工作生活平衡(资深专家如Martin Flower)
  2. 首先:不要着眼于眼前的薪资,而更在乎长远来看,你做的事情能否让你能成长,比如学习当前有用的新知识。不然几年之后,知识换代了,而自己仍然还在使用n年之前的技能
  3. 其次:投资半衰期更长的知识
    比如:算法、信息安全、架构、性能调优、数学(这个是我自己加上去的)

 

除了原文,还有一个60岁老人家的评论:

Jeff Boes

I\’m also a professional programmer, a few months shy of my 60th birthday. (Yeah, that makes me a true dinosaur: I literally learned to program in college on punched cards, and now I work on the web. Along the way I\’ve done so many different things (mini-computers? client-server? SNOBOL?) that I can\’t be bothered to list all of them in my resume any more.

And I\’ve just been laid off, this time from a job where I\’d been for 11 years. This is my sixth layoff (the first was eight months into my very first programming job). This time was pretty painful, because the job I\’d been doing for 11 years was the main thrust of my small company\’s business, and suddenly there wasn\’t enough work in that line to keep me busy.

So not only do I have about 11 years accumulation of stale knowledge, now I need to leap into the job market and convince someone that my main skill of *adaptability* is worth paying for.

中心思想:

我已经60岁了(就跟恐龙一样老)~ 但是不久之前,我工作了11年的公司将我辞退。因为这个公司业务稳定之后,觉得没有让我足够忙碌的事情,就将我辞退了。

 

因此我只能重新走入人才市场并试图说服雇主我的“适应性”还不错

听起来还是有点吓人的。

 

但是这确实不是危言耸听。之前有一个真实的故事:有个人45岁,从华为出来去T公司面试,技术各方面都不错,可是因为年龄问题直接被hr拒掉了。

注意:此T公司绝不是我所在的公司,因为我在的公司也是T开头。。。
