10,000 hours.

According to a theory for mastering a subject, it takes 10,000 hours of doing and learning that subject. over the last 9 months that I've done programming I've achieved 724/10,000 of those hours (estimate, more likely lower by about 100), and if I program 3 hours a day (or more realistically, 21 hours a week) it will take me another 8 and a half years to reach that 10,000 hour mark.

So, what about you guys?
i don't really know how much time i spend on learning but i'm sure it's a big number!

but i found this article in a blog (udemy blog) that says it takes 15360 hours to be expert in computer programming (link: http://www.udemy.com/blog/are-you-really-an-expert)

i really don't expect somebody to be an expert if he reached this mark but if you really learn new things about programming every hour of the 15360 hours i expect you to be very good in programming

I have heard that becoming an expert was one hour a day for three years.
