re: What was the moment you realized you weren’t such a newbie anymore? VIEW POST


I graduated from a bootcamp and felt a huge amount of imposter sydrome (as I think a lot of bootcamp grads must). I got a job as a Rails dev and felt so intimidated by all the other devs who were self taught from a young age, or had degrees.

I moved on from that company after a year, and a few months down the line my dev team lead from that company reached out and asked me to interview at his new company.

More than not feeling like a newbie (which I still do), it made me realise that the pace I was learning at was OK if he still wanted to work with me!
