Architect (November 2020)

2020-11-08 08:26:28 InfoQ

There is a topic on Zhihu “ Now it's spreading on the Internet 35 Many people will lose their jobs at the age of 18 , It's scaremongering , It's still real ?” One of Gao's answers gives a graph of technological experience development , One's skills are graduating 5 It will reach the peak level in two years , For occupations of technical origin , For example, the programmer's salary will reach the maximum . Once this time has passed , People will quickly appear a state of fatigue . A lot of people think that programmers are eating “ Youth meal ”.

But senior programmers Mark Seemann stay 《 The experience of a senior programmer : Industry , Young people alone are not enough 》 This industry needs not only young people , Also needed “ the elderly ” Even the views of retired employees . We've excerpted parts of , To readers .

If you accept the idea that young people prefer to try the impossible , So we need young people . Then we need “ the elderly ( This refers to older programmers )” Do you ?

I'm in this year 50 Year old . You may think I'm old , But I expect to work for a few more years . I don't know if the software industry needs 50 A man of years old , But I'm not thinking about this older person . I think about people who are retired or about to retire .

In a culture that values young people , We often ignore “ the elderly ” Opinions and experience of . We don't think they're keeping up with the times . Their experience does not apply to us , Because we live in a new environment . I'm not advocating that we become a person who respects our elders just because of our age “ Old people rule ”. and , According to the law of large numbers , Some people live to old age . There is no necessary connection between survivors and wisdom .

We need to “ the elderly ” Tell us the truth , Because they have nothing to lose .

In the last few years , I noticed a trend . A book is published , It will expose the tragic state of an organization . This happens often in Denmark where I live . A book may reveal the sad state of the Danish tax office , A book might describe the Department of defense , A book about the climate crisis .

commonly , These books are written by retired professors or department heads . I don't think these people suddenly realize after retirement . As part of the system , They already know that they are in the system “ Rot ”, But they had too much to lose . You might say , They should have said before they retired , however , That requires that we can't count on the moral support that most people have .

When people retire , The risk of being fired disappears .“ the elderly ” Can be more free than others to say something that others dare not say .

indeed , There are many people who may use free speech to vent . however , Many people in a special position can reveal truths that others dare not say . Many people , Maybe it's just spitting bitterness , But some people can expose the information they have in their unique position .

When that grumpy old guy tweets something that makes you feel uncomfortable , Think about it : He may be right . In the software development industry , We need young people . Because of their enthusiasm and lack of experience , They're going to hit the shackles .

Most people fail when they try to do the impossible , But a few people will succeed . It looks like a bit of a cynical point of view , But we were all young , And most of us have gone through this stage . It's a little like an adult ceremony , Even if you don't make your mark in the world , You will still learn a lot .

We need old people , Because they are in a position to tell the world the truth . Please note that , I'm not arguing about the experience of the elderly . in fact , I think it's also valuable , But that's a common point of view : Listen to the old man , Because they have experience and wisdom . At least some of them are .
