This was great! Very insightful and I couldn't agree more! Being that I am the youngest dev in the office by a pretty big margin, I run into advice like this by seniors pretty often. I made simple mistakes on my first ticket. Everyone joked about it at first but on a serious not they all preached lesson 5 to me. It was an mistake I can learn and grow from. Everyone should realize no matter what stage you are at you will always run into "Excellent Mistakes"
It's great to hear that your senior devs encourage those kinds of mistakes and learning from them. That's one of the best things for younger devs on a team, it's certainly helped me become a more regular part of the workflow at my position. Having a supportive environment is often the difference between "excellent mistakes" and just "mistakes."
Absolutely, keep releasing great information like this it's extremely helpful.
