Generally speaking, five years of work is a threshold. F or programmers, this is no exception! At this point, most programmers can't help but look back on their five years of experience and spontaneously start thinking about what they should do in the future.
From input costs to benefits, a relatively high level of programmers 5 years is enough to establish an effective knowledge system, of course, even if it is no longer good, can become familiar in this field, for most common problems can be easily.
The growing maturity of technology and capabilities should also be the most cost-effective stage for employers.
However, in the face of ideal and reality, some people will stop to think about the way ahead...
According to William Dresevic's book "Excellent Sheep", some yard farmers are called "excellent sheep" and have been working overtime, writing code, implementing functions, and so on. H owever, there is no sense of satisfaction and value. Five years from now, can you guarantee that you're a "good sheep"?
Many programmers who have worked for more than 5 years will become the main program or technical backbone of the project, of course, if the ability to be a technical director and project leader is not a problem.
Therefore, in fact, the work of more than 5 years of programmers can basically start to consider continuing to wait for technical posts or transfer management posts, can generally determine whether they can be qualified for a higher position.
If you intend to continue to work in the technical post, can only show that you are willing to devote yourself to the industry, can do for a lifetime. A s long as you are competent and not underpaid, even at 40 or 50 you can still be a programmer, and some companies have no age restrictions on programmers. Think of a pale-haired old programmer fighting side by side with a group of young men, and that's quite inspiring!
Programmers who have worked for more than five years may no longer be an all-powerful work robot, and they are gradually shifting their focus to life:
1. Get off work on time and work healthily.
2. Marry a wife and have children and enjoy life.
3. Sports games, immersive entertainment.
4. Music art, audio-visual appreciation.
5. Self-improvement, healthy growth.
