The first project that comes to mind is implementing an Apple Push Notification service through our Rails API shortly after I started as a full-stack developer. I was trying to do everything alone and just spent hours and hours and hours changing things and reading the response from the server. In the end, I had to get Redis involved. It was mostly a damn nightmare and I should have had someone around to help me through it.
Trial by fire. 😂
Would you say that it was a good learning experience though?
Sure, but I would encourage dev teams not to leave their juniors lost in the wilderness like that.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
