    Started second guessing the ideas of the lead developer and doing things faster, better and greater than said lead developer. Also by getting a lead android developer pwned on his phone/video interview.

    Then currently my manager stating that I am her overall softwate engineering expert. For a large organization that is. Shit like that means a lot really. It think the degree helps also. I am the only one in my dptmnt with a comp sci b.s degree

    Hey @rising - for me it's when I stopped trying to solve every problem with one language.

    Now I just listen to the problem at hand & often the choice of language/tool will come from the business constraints.
