I work in webdev for 20 years.
That moment when I think I am not a newbie anymore and can do complex stuff quick, something happens and I spend next 3 days figuring out wtf is wrong with this thing and it misbehaving
Serious talk: when I can share my knowledge about some topic with some other person it they think I know a lot - that's the point I think I am not a complete newbie at this topic.
Probably that's the only confirmation that satisfies me.
Doing actual job(build complex web app or something) is not what makes me think I am not newbie.
