如何成为软件大牛?

这是一本5星级的就业指南。如何选择自己的就业方向,如何成为一个专家,如何成为有影响力的人,比起其它的书说的更清楚。

这是两年前的一本书。当时,网上找原版电子书,发现了这本书的英文版。简介太吸引人了。哪里有下载源?找吧。

找来找去,到处是陷阱,经常遇到黄色网站。女儿看见还得费一番口舌,搞得我很无奈。

程序员里有那么多的色鬼吗?非也。

讲一个20年前的故事吧。pc机上有一种沙蟹的游戏软件,就是赌王那类电影中经常见到的扑克牌游戏。软件中赢的不是筹码,是少女的衣服。赢一次脱 一件,输一次穿一件。别的办公室玩的不亦乐乎,软件室根本没人玩。为什么,因为有人改动了程序,赢了脱,输了也脱,没两下脱光了。没有输赢,一点不刺激。 所以,别的屋子玩色情游戏热火朝天,独有软件室无人问津,除非有人来展示一下最终的结果。

最后找到一个刚刚成立不久的计算机电子书网站。和其他网站不同,他拒绝一般的访客。注册时考一道编程的题,结果正确了才能注册成功。安全码也非常有特色,软件名,编程语言关键字,搞软件的人会心一笑,外行可能一头雾水,很好玩。

注册完了,书就搞到了。但是,和一般的专业书不太一样,读起来挺费劲,有些地方看不懂。有点遗憾,最后没有看完。

前两天书店里看到这本书,觉得有点面熟,收入囊下。回来一查,果不其然,是两年前没有读完的那本书。

译者是个牛人,能把这样的一本书用汉字译出来,方便了今天的读者。尤其是高中生,大学生,刚刚入职的毕业生,真应该感谢万晓光。因为他的工作,现在可以读到这样一本好书,还不用费那么多气力。

如果有什么缺憾的话,这本书有点贵:69元人民币。好在物有所值:看过了就不会心疼钱了,看明白了钱也就不是问题了。

下面是我当时看到的简介。

标题是:Making it Big in Software
副标题:Get the Job. Work the Org. Become Great.
