23.07.2010 | 黃金十年

仲記得2000年7月24日係我入行第一日, 今日足足喺呢一行打滾滿10年(!!)喇.. 果真係不經不覺, 醒起都一額汗~~

其實冇諗過自己會做IT呢行, 中學畢業有打算讀建筑設計, 唔記得後來點解跟咗班同學去讀電子工程, 拎到張沙紙之後又無端端應徵做programmer.. 嗰一日開始由低做起, 一做就係10年, 當中甜酸苦辣, 高低起伏, 百般滋味.. 10年一關口, 我唔覺自己有咩成就, 再5年再10年, 我又會何去何從呢??


i still remember it was 24th July 2000 when i started working in this industry, and today marks precisely a full 10-year (!!) i have been working in this line.. it certainly is something easily slipped off your mind, but a shock whenever you realised..

i never have thought i would end up in IT.. i actually kind of wanted to go for architecture in high school, but due to can't-remember-what reason i followed a gang of mates to pursue electronic engineering, and finally got hired as a programmer.. since then i started from the entry level, experience through combinations of ups & downs and likes & hatred over the past decade.. if 10 years is a milestone, i don't think i have any great achievement, given another 5 years and then 10 years, i ask where will i be then??

  5. If I could start all over again, I would have pursued something else than what I am currently doing. Being passionate about something is really important.

  32. @ Tekkaus:
    errr, yeah, i was a programmer but not really one now.. hehe, java and javascript are different, i'm only good at javascript but not java.. :)

    @ khengsiong:
    係啊, 建築設計我係指architecture啊.. 因為要讀好多年, 讀唔起所以放棄囉.. 我其實係個毫無生意頭腦嘅人, 冇咩所謂嘅business plan喎, 唔通你有個good idea想同人合作?? :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. @ Mei Teng:
    yeah, i haven't really think about what i would like to pursue if given the chance to start all over again.. so, you are not totally happy with what you are doing right now?? i agree with you, passion is very important in doing everything.. :)

    @ Caroline Ng May Ling:
    hehe, actually those scripts things can be learned fairly conveniently though internet examples one.. just that you never tried.. :)

  34. @ Kelvin:
    haha, ten years later will be my 黃金十年, that means you have not even started anything?? hmmm, that's why, i can't find any achievements!!

    @ -KeO-:
    其實也還不知道自己要的是甚麼, 其實也很難找到一份dream job又可以在各方面平衡的喇.. 小生意, 有想過, 不過還是覺得自己替人打工好, 因為自己沒甚麼生意頭腦..

  35. @ 海市蜃樓:
    唉, 你咁快就一桶冷水兜頭淋落嚟架?? 其實都未必係工字冇出頭嘅, 要睇自己點樣運籌帷幄唧, 啱唔啱?? :)

    @ manglish:
    yeah, 10 years already.. but i guess you have more years of working experience than me right?? kekeke :p

    ReplyDelete

  37. @ mNhL:
    yeah, already 10 years and it just like in a wink of eye.. i guess you are right, it's all my destiny and fate that i didn't follow what i really wanted to do.. but lucky is that, at least i don't hate and no regret with what i am doing now.. :)

    @ 古克石屋:
    其實做了那麼久, 真的會覺得累的, 大概這10年就是來到一個交叉點吧??

  38. @ Pete:
    haha, luckily it's a saturday on this 10th anniversary day, no need to work!! :p

    @ smallkucing:

    @ wenn:

  39. @ 单身汉:
    廿多年, 怎麼會兩手空空呢?? 你要求高吧?? 就算兩手空空, 腦子肯定是塞滿知識的.. :)

    @ 发白日梦^^:
    唉, 慶祝?? 如果10週年我可以退休了, 那才叫做值得慶祝吧?? 問題是, 還有很多個10年哩~~ :p

  40. @ Bananazஇ:
    errr, no lah, it's 10 years in this industry but not in the same company.. oh come on, how to stay in the same company for 10 years?? hahaha.. IT is a fast changing field, rarely have someone who will stay more than 10 years in the same company i think.. yeah, i'm wondering, how many more 10 years are there still for me to struggle??

    @ HappySurfer:
    errr, nope really, because i don't think i have made myself any good achievement.. in fact, i would say this 10 year milestone is actually more than a crossroad.. thanks for liking it, i've actually been choosing a new theme for the layout for quite some time last night.. :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. @ Ghosty Nana:
    yeah, it's already a decade, but it's like happening within just a wink.. hooh, a little scary~~

    @ edward:
    真係十年人事幾番新啊, 10年內所經歷嘅高低起伏, 其實都足夠寫一本書啩?? 咁我當然係個樂觀嘅人, 都係展望未來, 希望明天會更好幾嘅, 呢樣嘢, 做咗10年多多少少都學到啲嘅.. 牢騷, 其實我覺得自己好少發牢騷架喎, 我基本上係個非常專業嘅員工嚟架.. 請到我真係三生有幸架~~ 哈哈!!

    @ victor:
    yeah, it's already 10 years!! quite scary yeah?? well, i guess you are right, don't think i will deviate far from this industry, as this is the area i'm more comfortable and familiar with.. unless i really can put down everything and desperately asking for a change, but nope it's too risky.. thanks anyway, yeah, same to you, hope we'll all be successful wherever we are.. :)

  54. @ JC:
    出人頭地?? 你講緊邊個啊?? 我咪同你一樣, 得個吉, 何來出人頭地啊?? 如果我出人頭地, 今時今日都已經遠走高飛啦~~ 呵呵!!

    @ eugene:
    是不怕再20年, 問題是: 現在的我開心嗎??

    @ Ashley:
    對囉, 其實我問自己, 如果有一天我不做IT還可以做些甚麼?? 自己又沒有生意頭腦, IT說專業又不是, 就是半桶水騙吃那種, 很難可以頂天立地的.. 唉, 還是老本行比較安全喇..
