Why to be a programmer? Why not to be a programmer?
Programmers work out stable. They don't make a decision on bussiness but only on the technical. They go deep into technical instead of thinking how to earn more money. If you are programmer in HK, you need to think various part which how to make more extra money instead of how to do better on your job because of low pay.
Some programmers who are hard working take many many projects and sitting in front of computer to do programming over 12 hours a day. They could only earn how much what they have done. I have experienced these days. Obviously, you should understand this working style cannot help you make huge money.
To add bussiness concept into, the next issue for them should how to initialize the bussiness stuff related to programming? Build some bussiness website product, like shopping cart, referral, coupons? Build some high traffic platform, like facebook, social places, forum to benefits from advertisements? Other than these two ways, I cound not imagine how programmers could earn money in alternate way with related to their professional field.
Therefore, programmers in Hong Kong need to learn more bussiness, know finances, know how bussinessmen makes money in detail. We do it myself!
