Sure plenty of tips.

  • Absorb everything.
  • Read everything.
  • Don't be afraid to tackle things you might think are out of your league.
  • Learn the apps infra. (You dont have to be devops, but understanding the whole picture helps with the event/request lifecycle. This will help you debug outside of your normal in app context)
  • Realize that you know more than you think.
  • Give yourself more credit.
  • Don't ever let someone tell you that you are 'almost there'. You are there, and you are killing it.
  • Have the goal to leave the company in a better position than you found it.
  • Realize they would not be there without your contributions.
  • Don't compare yourself to others. You are you, and you freaking rock.
