I think I have seen that word before when reading through Michael O Church’s The trajectory of a software engineer… and where it all goes wrong, http://michaelochurch.wordpress.com/2012/01/26/the-trajectory-of-a-software-engineer-and-where-it-all-goes-wrong/
A post on Quora link me to Erik Dietrich’s “Expert Beginner” series, which I haven’t explored yet. I am quite like the word so I will definitely catch up with the writings.

Not quite directly relevant, but an article “The Programmer’s Price” is also quite an interesting read, http://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2014/11/24/programmers-price
And, Teach Yourself Programming In Ten Years by Peter Norvig is also related, http://norvig.com/21-days.html.
