老董兼创办者梁胜硕士应InfoQ之邀,为周围程序员专门创作的个体职业发展心路历程及对程序员职业生涯规划的提议。

梁胜大学生是Rancher Labs Inc. 公司协同开创者及老总。创制Rancher
Labs以前,早期在天下出名的她Sun
迪兰公司担任宗旨官员级工程师时期,梁胜大学生是Java语言J二SE平台宗旨零部件JNI(Java
Native
Interface)的笔者,并进而领导设计和开支了Java语言极其主旨的JVM(Java虚拟机)。他于二〇〇八年开立环球顶尖的云计算铺面cloud.com并担任高管,推出盛名的云总计管理软件CloudStack,也由此被誉为CloudStack之父。201一年cloud.com被
Citrix 以 2 亿欧元购买旗下,梁胜大学生出任 Citrix云平台首席技术官,也是
Citrix
集团第3位夏族CTO。早期,梁大学生作为创办人之1,创建了Teros互联网安全公司,该集团未来也被Citrix公司并购。梁胜学士早年还担任过SEVEN网络公司的工程副首席执行官,以及Openwave
System技术老总。梁胜大学生毕业于中国防戏剧大学少年班,并有着俄亥俄州立大学计算机大学生学位。

从学生时代,到研发工程师,到共同创业,到近年来变成硅谷云总结领域泰斗级的人选,梁胜学士以团结的人生履历及经验感悟,为各位身为程序员的您,写下了那几个话。

综观当今各行各业,大家可能很难再找到2个像程序员那样的事情了。在云计算、移动互连网、以及人工智能那样的新技巧的进步大潮不断催生出新的商业机会的今天,IT行业对程序员仿佛有无止无尽的供给。作为2个程序员,想到职业规划,一方面大家以为有太多的机遇,另一方面咱们也会倍感迷茫,甚至害怕。

就算你在1个大商厦工作,怎么样跟上新技巧进步的脚步?如何幸免在同事获得升职时,自个儿沦为死胡同,无成人空间?如若你已经控制独立创业,你怎么在重重的创业竞争对手中平地而起?这么些竞争对手中的累累人大概拥有比你更加多的血本,更有经历。在新技巧不断颠覆的明天,我们是还是不是对前途的10年、20年甚至30年的职业发展做出一些计划,让咱们面对前景的行业前行非常熟知呢?

有人说编制程序序已经不是一个好的饭碗了,因为程序员只可以吃青春饭。在我眼里,那种看法大错特错。实际上,绝对未有其余别的事情比编制程序序更能展现个人创立力和技巧的股票总市值。程序员像音乐家。编制程序的确是三个难为的难为进度,但不重复。世上不会有五个人写出截然相同的代码。正如三个音乐大师壹样,程序员能够持续相当长的职业生涯。笔者就认识很多程序员,他们固然已经四48周岁以上如故维持高效。程序员的薪水比音乐家好得多,因为编制程序的工作为社会创制了直白的经济价值。

聊起事情发展,很几人觉得要马到功成只要找对机会。对那类人来说,职业规划就如买彩票1样。他们不断从一个项目换来另二个项目,从1个商户跳槽到另三个商户并沉迷。他们不爱戴本人在做什么样,只关注是不是站对了队。事实上,这一个人并无法找到能源自由,而是得到一份有污点的简历和败坏的名气。而在咱们的IT行业,壹人的声名决定了整套。在整个职业生涯中,声誉的积淀与技能和资源的积淀同样至关心珍视要。当你有精良的信誉时,机会当然会来找上门来。

由此,仅仅关怀新的技巧升高和新的商业机会是不够的。无论你在手上执行什么样工作职分,你都应有在全力以赴付出一流工作结出,以此来积攒你的名声。风险投资家
Ann Miura-Ko 简单地将那一做法包罗为“成为世界伍星级”。在 Ann
的想想中,“世界头号”适用于别的一项工作职分,从简单的用复印机复印壹份文件到编辑代码,做3个PPT阐述,或大到做出一个产品。据本身阅览,那世界上平庸的东西太多。借使您可见全力把每壹件小事都做得最棒,长期积聚下来,您将改为最璀璨的大咖。

不可枚贡士认为编制程序仅仅是二个重复性的行事。但实质上作画、做音乐也1律都以重复性的劳作。是哪些让壹幅画或一段曲成为世界5星级的啊?无疑是Haoqing、创立力以及对周到的求偶。而实在伟大的程序员能在最家常的职务中找到心境把程序写得最棒。在
Google诞生从前,网页搜索的标题被产业界公认为是毫无意义而且已解决得了的难题。EricYuan 曾经在 Webex 任工程副首席执行官,而她确信 Webex
发明的网络会议系统如故能够改正,继而他创制了当时海内外最成功的 Zoom
录像会议服务。像Jobs和马斯克那样的神话人物,他们的功成名就也以心绪、创立力和追求左右逢原做为基础。对大家普通人来说,我们能够从每日的工作做起,从细节做起:

  1. 当你在做2个统一筹划或达成,固然只是某三个简练的功用点,你能还是不可能把那一个意义做成全球最佳的?不要在乎事情小,越小越不难冒尖。
  2. 你多半无法二次就把设计做得最棒。就像绘画和音乐一样,你要再叁品味,不断加强,总有一天会被认同。
  3. 开源软件是3个向海内外呈现你协调的工应战果的空子。在弄懂你为啥喜欢某个开源项目后,你是还是不是也能够成立一个出名的开源项目?
  4. 假设您有机会要做1个PPT演说,千万不要照搬照抄外人的PPT。尽量去领略您的观者的喜好,然后从头伊始本人写贰个PPT。你的对象应该是:怎么着把那些PPT做成环球最棒的?
  5. 设若有机遇再做同一个解说,你能还是不能够把它做得更好一点?相对不用把1样的PPT讲3遍,每一回都要有增高。

在大机遇上门从前,你能为协调的职业规划最棒的准备正是把你天天从事的本职工作做得精粹。假若维持那种工作态度,你的卖力终将收获你全体集体和全部公司的确认。若是你是专事一个开源项目以来,那您将会拿走天下的肯定。以那种态度工作,你将会找到突兀而起的成就感,你会连忙变的更赏心悦目,更快获得升职。假若您哪一天决定独立创业,你的声誉能让你神速地收获投资,非常的慢地抓住人才。最关键的是,你会分晓如何才能创设一家世界拔尖的合作社!


本文原来的小说由梁胜大学生以英文作文,特此贴上原版的书文,供您欣赏英文文法上的另壹种卓绝。

There’re probably few professions that are as dynamic and exciting as a
programmer today. New technologies like cloud, mobile, and AI lead to
new business opportunities, and with that our industry seems to have an
insatiable demand for programming talent. For a programmer, all this
could feel quite confusing and daunting. If you work in a large company,
how do you make sure you keep up with the development of the latest
technology and do not get stuck in a dead end project while others get
promoted? If you decide to take the plunge and become an entrepreneur
yourself, how do you shine through hundreds of other people–many of them
are better funded, better connected and more experienced–who are trying
to do exactly the same? In today’s rapidly changing industry, is there
anything you can plan to better position yourself in the next 10, 20,
and 30 years, regardless of what new technology and business disruptions
may come?

Before we discuss what you can do, let’s first take a look at what does
not work. People say programming is no longer an attractive career
opportunity. It’s at best a Young Person’s Career. I cannot disagree
more. There’s not another profession that values individual’s creativity
and skills as much as programming. Programming is an art: it is a
laborious process, and no two person produces exactly the same code.
Just like an artist, programming careers can last a long time. I know
many programmers who remained productive well into their 40s and 50s.
Programming is of course a much more lucrative career choice than art.
Programmers are compensated much better than artists because their work
creates economic value for the society.

Some people believe the key to success is to find the right opportunity.
To these people career planning is like playing the lottery. They jump
from project to project and jump from company to company hoping to find
that one big opportunity. They are restless. They don’t care about what
they do. They only care about what it leads. In reality, instead of
finding financial freedom, they more often end up with a tarnished
resume, no useful skills, and a bad reputation. Reputation is everything
in our industry. Throughout your career, accumulating reputation is just
as important as accumulating skills and wealth. Opportunity knocks when
you have a good reputation.

It is therefore not sufficient to keep our eyes and ears out to keep up
with new technological development and new business opportunities. You
should be accumulating your reputation by consistently delivering superb
work for whatever task you have at hand. Venture Capitalist Ann Miura-Ko
captures this idea in one simple term “be world class.” In Ann’s mind,
“be world class” applies to any task, from something as simple as making
a Xerox copy to writing code, making a presentation, or building a
product. I can speak from my experience that the world consists of
largely mediocre work. By going an extra mile and producing the best
work, you will be the brightest star in your organization.

Many people find programming a repetitive task. So is painting. So is
music. What makes a world-class painting or music? Passion, creativity,
and the quest for perfection. Great programmers find passion in the most
mundane problems. Before Google, the problem of web search was
considered uninteresting and solved. Eric Yuan ran engineering at Webex.
He believed the web meeting experience pioneered by Webex could be
improved and went on to create the Zoom video conferencing service.
Legends like Steve Jobs and Elon Musk are also built on the passion,
creativity, and the quest for perfection. For the rest of us, we can
start small with what we work on every day.

  1. If you are presenting a design, even just for a feature or a
    component, why not make it the best possible design in the world for
    that feature or component? Impress the heck out of your colleagues.
    The less important a task is, the easier it is to do a better job
    and impress.
  2. Most likely you won’t be able to achieve some amount of greatness in
    one try. Like a painter or musician, work on the next piece. Then
    next. You will get better and get noticed.
  3. Open source offers an opportunity to show your work to the whole
    world. Figure out why you like a great open source project. Can you
    do the same?
  4. If you get an opportunity to make a Powerpoint presentation, do not
    borrow slides from other. Understand what your audience might want
    and create the presentation from scratch yourself. How do you make
    it the greatest presentation there is for this topic?
  5. Next time you are asked to make the same presentation, can you make
    it even better? Never give the same presentation twice. You can
    always do better with every practice.

Until you find that great opportunity or have a great opportunity knock
on your door, the best thing you can do to prepare for your own career
development is to focus on delivering superb results of things you
already do every day. Your efforts will be noticed by your team, in the
whole company, and if you work on an open source project, by the whole
world. You will get a sense of what it takes to stand out and win. You
will get better quickly. You will get promoted quickly. And if someday
you decided to start a business on your own, your reputation will
prepare you to get funding and attract talent. More importantly you will
also know what it takes to build a world-class company.
