Making that leap

I just picked up Move Your Software Development Career to the Leadership Track which (at the time of this writing) is priced at $2 for the Kindle edition vs $16 for the paperback editiion. It is a very down-to-earth discussion and notes on software engineers making the leap from staying technical and doing what they do well into the mysterious black art of software engineering management.

This book has changed my point of view on managerial roles in software engineering and definitely makes it seem less like a career move towards total brain-rot. ;)

I have a brain teaser for you:
A day trader has $10 million in assets. She buys & sells 30% of her portfolio every day. assume that this day trader is very good and incurs single round-trip transaction costs of only 10 cents on a $30 stock. Roughly, by how much does this day trader's strategy have to beat the benchmark in order to make this a profitable activity? Assume that the trade could earn $200,000 per year in an equivalent alternative career and that there are 255 trading days per year.

Saw your google adwords ad to your blog. Amused.
Why do you advertise a blog which you're hardly updating?
