I got a job opportunity in another country and went there for a 3 weeks trail working, I've worked on two different projects, one was with a CMS called Contao and the other one on WordPress, I'm fluent on WordPress, I've been developing themes for more than three years now.
With Contao I started the learning curve and for 2 weeks I learned a lot of stuff.

Before coming back for Visa stuff and taking care for few documentes needed they asked me if I could still do some freelance stuff from my home country. I said yes and got invited to the GIT repo.

It's been a week now that I'm trying to understand how stuff work and everything that the senior dev wrote is way advanced from everything that I've ever worked.
I couldn't finish more then 5 minor tasks simple CSS and PHP logic and I'm feeling very embarrassed.

I just wrote to the senior dev and told him that I'm way behind with my coding skills and I'm seeing dreams with code that don't work.

    The best way to learn is by doing things you don't understand. Don't be afraid to break things.

    I second that best way to learn is by breaking things.

    Break something locally that’s why you have damn git repo for.

    The senior dev is a great guy, he told me what's a good way to solve this problems and invited me to do some pair programming.
    Started breaking things and we're fixing them together.

    Thank you for the support guys!! πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼πŸ’ͺ🏼
