I did a thesis on Human-Computer Interaction (HCI) using Cognitive Psychology and Activity Theory as a background. Cognitive Science fascinates me but I have little experience with it. At the moment I'm a PhD student at the IT University of Copenhagen, at the PIT lab studying HCI, but I mainly have a software development background.

In 2007 I got my bachelor degree in applied informatics in Belgium. Immediately after, I started working at the company where I did my internship, AIM Productions. I liked the work and colleagues at the company too much to give up entirely for further studies, so I decided to combine the two. In 2009 I started studying for my master in Game and Media Technology at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands and I graduated in 2012.

Welcome to CogSci. We generally expect more scientifically rooted answers. Care to add some references to those statements? Additionally, even assuming the overly simplistic '10,000 hours of practice', what about maintaining a gained skill, what about conflicting skills, what about physiological limits, ...? In your defense, I feel the question is too broad and should be closed.

I don't see how this question is different from my previous one you link to? Did you read past the title? Closing it for now, I will reopen in case I misinterpreted.

Interesting question! Your post can further be improved by fully referencing (rather than just linking) the book. I couldn't find it immediately (and didn't feel like downloading a potentially illegal copy?).

You can update your question, including a reference to the book you found, and explain why that does not fully answer your question yet. If that particular book does provide an answer to your question, rather than posting a link to it as an answer, explain why it provides an answer.
