Thank you for this article. Imposter syndrome is something that does hit us all, and working in a great and safe team which reminds you of your knowledge and helps you fill in the gaps is part of combating that. We have a "cheers" slack channel at work where we recognise the value each of us bring to the team.

Also run team meetings as a team building/ brainstorming session that helps stop one upmanship - which can lead to feelings of negativity and impostor syndrome.

This is a top tip in your article too:
"Teach others, it will help you realise how much you do know."

It is always recommend. It doesn't have to be teaching at work - eg helping out at a CoderDojo can remind you why you became a developer in the first place.
