How to Get into the Top N%

Michael Church wrote an interesting answer on Quora, describing a logarithmic scale of programming skills and (even more importantly) hints to follow to get from n00b into the top N% (for some small value of N):

  • Budget 7–14 years;
  • Study voraciously;
  • Build things when you don’t know that you’ll succeed;
  • Network to get new ideas;
  • Job hop when you stop learning.

Replace “programmer” with “networking engineer” and read the whole answer ;)

  1. Replace it with anything. But yes I can so see this. I've been applying this to my life. It's proved itself rather well. I'm ahead of the curve for most things in life/career because of it.
