I have worked for two and a half years. Since 2018, I have made a review of my study and life this year and the plan for the next year at the end of each year. This is the first time that I have published my review and plan in Nuggets. Is released, it is in order to meet their own monologue, 2 it is to tell everyone has such a plain ordinary programmer, he left some detours or do some decisions, if this experience can bring some help to the person is good, or you just want to look at life and career planning can also be other programmers.

I was born in 1998. I started my internship in the second half of 2018 and have been working for more than two years now. As a junior college programmer, when looking for a job is certainly not popular, I think this does not have what problem, large companies do not want to go to small companies, as long as the technical level is excellent, work for a period of time to prove themselves, we still will trust you. The reason why I went to junior college is that I didn't study hard when I was young, so I started to learn later. When I was a freshman, I realized that it would be too late if I didn't study, so I began to make my own review and planning.

I owe this insight to an app and a philosopher.

At that time, I had never seen so many high-quality elites gathered on an app. Looking at the answers of these leaders and looking at myself in a confused state, it was inevitable that I would have the desire to change, and there were just so many answers to tell you what to do.

Philosopher Schopenhauer, since the childhood I don't know what you want to do, and I don't know what I should do, what is important, also don't like class, bored, so also didn't pay any efforts and action, at the lucky enough to see the Schopenhauer's book "the wisdom of life, then open the floodgates, Read "Essays on Schopenhauer's thought", "The Big Question", "Sophie's World", "Introduction to Philosophy", "Talk about beauty", these are philosophical entry works. It was Schopenhauer who helped me find what I really needed to focus on, and what I wanted to do, to create my own work that could make a difference in the world. I began to study philosophy because of Schopenhauer's influence, and I feel that, as Maugham wrote in Reading is a Refuge to Carry with you: "Philosophical works will not disappoint you. You can never see the boundaries in this kind of work, it's as diverse as the human soul." . Or from An Introduction to Philosophy: "Philosophy is different from all other disciplines, precisely because it is the critical approach to all subjects, and all other disciplines fall within its broad horizon. Philosophy is a way of life, a life of thought or reason, the life that a man like Socrates lived throughout his life, the life that most of us live only for a few hours a week. It thinks of everything, of everything. But mostly, it lives with thought."

Summary review

January 1, 2020.

At this time, I worked for more than one year and was 21 years old. Graduate from junior college in the first half of 2019.

I have been working as an intern in an outsourcing company in Taizhou since the second half of 2018. I became a full-time employee at the end of 2018 and didn't leave until the end of 2019. The monthly fixed salary is 4,300, because I got a commission of more than 20,000 yuan in 2019, the average monthly salary is more than 6K and less than 7K.

Working in this outsourcing company in Taizhou has two advantages: one is that the rent is very cheap in the owner's home; the other is that I have accumulated a lot of practical experience in projects. In a small bedroom on the second floor of the boss's home, the monthly rent as long as 200+ water and electricity, every month to eat 2,000 yuan, usually to buy something, the general monthly can save about 3000. In the past year, I have done 5 projects in the company, including 1 front-end project, 3 back-end project, and 1 front-end project. Among them, the price of 2 projects reached more than 150,000 yuan, and I got a total commission of more than 20,000 yuan.

The company also has disadvantages. One is that the technology stack used by the company is relatively backward, most employees have weak technical level, and there is a lack of professional project process and development standards. Also because it is an outsourcing company, the work is very busy, party A has a lot of shit, sometimes also very unhappy. In addition, the salary in Taizhou is still too low, so I prefer to work in first-tier cities. Even if the living cost will increase, I will not lose as long as the salary increases enough, and the technical level of companies in first-tier cities will also be stronger.

Self-positioning: NOW I can write back-end interface and front-end page. I mainly work on back-end. If it is combined with another front-end, I can develop and complete about 150,000 outsourcing projects. In terms of development ability, we have a little breadth and speed, but the overall depth is still insufficient. Now, we can only meet the needs of the business, and the original knowledge is still not fully understood, so we have no ability to develop as a core.

To sum up, my next learning goal is to focus on the maintainability of code, improve my code writing skills, understand the professional project process and development norms, and then try to design a relatively elegant project code structure by myself.

The highlight of this year was buying the NS console I always wanted with the money I earned, and a computer that could play all the major games now. Before that from my primary school in the use of the old computer can be eliminated eventually, with the old computer before the most can move before 2008 out of the masterpiece game. The saddest thing this year came from my parents, who are still balancing their emotions.

I plan to work in Hangzhou next year with a monthly salary of more than 10K.

Summary review

27 December 2020.

At this time, I have worked for more than 2 years and AM 22 years old.

At the beginning of 2020, my mother and I bought a house together in Taizhou for investment. I need to pay off about 3,000 yuan of mortgage every month. I put in my notice at the end of 2019, only to be hit by the COVID-19 outbreak in early 2020. At the beginning of the year, it was very difficult to find a job during the epidemic. I originally planned to work in Hangzhou, but during the epidemic, there were too few employees in Hangzhou, so I decided to add the job in Shanghai. I have submitted more than 100 resumes on Boss Zhipin, but few of them replied to me. Most of them were direct rejections, and only 5 of them had an online interview with me. The first three failed. After that, I passed the two interviews, both of which were from Shanghai companies, so I made a choice between them.

One of the companies is in Shanghai Xuhui, which is an online shopping platform. It has a mature technical team. They said that they would give me 8K salary in the probation period with a single rest. Another company in Jiading, Shanghai, said it was doing blockchain-related business. The technical team was just established a month ago, and said it would offer me 11K salary and a single day off. So I chose to join the latter. It was hard to find a job during the pandemic, and I didn't want to put it off.

I started to sign the internship contract after working in this company in Jiading, Shanghai for a month. The owner's wife (she was the hr director in the company) told me that the salary of 10K was the total amount that the company had to pay, but it was not the amount I actually got (the original agreement of 11K was inexplicably changed to 10K, but I put up with it). I had to deduct 2000 from the probation period. The rest is only 80% (this is simply baffling), and the probation period does not pay five insurance and one gold, to pay. So in the first month, SOMEHOW I only got 6400 (not as much as I earned in Taizhou last year), and I didn't pay five insurance and one housing fund during the probation period. The company's management is chaotic and cheap (though the owner's wife keeps saying they're generous). I was shy and introverted. I didn't have much social experience at that time. I didn't know anyone in Shanghai. I have long wanted to quit my job, but because I was in Shanghai, save money, my parents also don't have much money, I also want to mortgage each month 3000 yuan, and it is hard to find a job during the outbreak, and all my colleagues were taking little salary, began a few months they have to endure, I can only choose as their first endure, waiting for the outbreak of the past. In addition, this company is very, very serious overtime, even the May Day overtime (without overtime pay of course), I have no spare time to learn skills for several months. This year is off to a bad start!

I started to work in this Shanghai blockchain company at the end of March this year and left in September. There were many disadvantages during my time with the company that I won't go into too much detail.

But the six months in Shanghai have not been all bad for me. In June this year, the leader of our technology department was fired because he failed to complete the project deadline set by the boss. In this project, I was recognized to undertake the most and most core development tasks, so my boss decided to let me as the development team leader, leading a team of 4 people to continue to complete the project. This is the first time for me to assume the role of project management. This work experience adds a lot to my resume, improves my overall vision and ability to control a project, and greatly improves my technical confidence. During these months as the development team leader, I became friends with my team members, and we completed and updated the project iteratively together. On the other hand, the lesson I learned in Shanghai has also impressed me, so I won't be as stupid and sweet as before and trust others easily. And I certainly won't be resigning naked.

In September, the epidemic situation in China had temporarily passed, and it was time for gold nine, silver ten, so I negotiated a job in Hangzhou through an online interview on September 5th. The salary is 16K, two days off, no pressure salary during the probation period, pay five insurance and one housing fund during the probation period. The only defect is that when I negotiated with HR, I asked for a salary based on 11K of the previous salary, but it was less. After I joined the company, I found that I could ask for 18K if I was more bold.

In the year-end summary of 2019, I wrote down the salary of more than 10K that I hope to work in Hangzhou next year. Fortunately, it took a lot of twists and turns to achieve the goal.

Self-positioning: In order to improve my code writing skills, I have gained some understanding of the concepts of code maintainability, reuse, loose coupling and algorithm complexity analysis through reading books such as "Complete Code", "Introduction to Algorithms", "Dome-Driven Design" and a lot of code knocking practice this year. Due to work reasons, I also have some experience in project management. Now I can efficiently complete all the front and back end business requirements of a common Web project by myself, and have the experience of designing a relatively elegant project code structure and database table structure from zero to one. My next plan is not to spend too much time on business, but to spend more time on consolidating the professional basis of computer and learning the fundamental knowledge, and constantly improve the accomplishment of writing code.

The happiest part of this year was the column "Wind in the Left Ear" that inspired me.

Next year, I hope my monthly salary can reach more than 20K. I will consolidate my professional knowledge of computer, learn English well, finish my self-made games and find my girlfriend.
