##which episodes(over 10Y)increased%%zbs(+GTD)

Patterns — usually the “mastery”/zbs grows over a surprisingly long time. I tend to practice over and over again to slowly get the insight. Vast majority of developers lack this contexx.

Note: these portable zbs are less “valuable” than interview skills??
Note: GTD depends more on local system knowledge than generic zbs.

* {zed} unix concepts and power tools [1]
* {GS} complex SQL query and tuning. It probably takes only a few months to reach this level, but the vast majority of developers don’t have this contexx
* {GS} remote debugging
* perl, but unfortunately, unpopular now
* java collections
