I think I'm going to write a book: "Master Software Engineering in Just 10+ Years."

Balance out all those "learn X in Y days" resources.

I have to admit, I'm a grumpy old man... 25+ years as a systems engineer and you start to feel like anybody with less than 10 years of experience is still a beginner. The irony being that the _important_ things aren't tools and software languages... there's understanding ease and cost of maintainability, working with others, seeing the difference between good and bad solutions, etc. Experience you can't get from a book or video.
