I have always felt, even before I heard about the 10,000 hour thing, that it takes about 5 years to become a master programmer. This more-or-less agrees with the 10,000 hour rule. <div>&nbsp;</div> There are varying degrees of mastery, of course, depending on talent and work ethic. I think it is fair to say, however, that after 10,000 hours practice you are probably about as good as you are going to get. After that, it is just a matter of fine tuning based on whatever experiences you are exposed to. <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div>

Thanks, Don, for your comment. I think after 10K hours things like coping with new developments start happening. But it's interesting how new developments (eg new product announcements) fill in gaps in one's knowledge :-) (while exposing them at the same time). :-(
