Welcome to devrant and congrats. Dont worry we all learn one step at a time. Fake it till you make it.
The impostor syndrome is real.
Just keep learning, and good luck!
be confident, you will know a lot more then you think you might not..
I started in a agency that only works with software X as a Senior Developer without any knowledge of software X..
Still dont know alot about it, still working there after 2 yrs..
Don't worry, i'm sure your good enough, or they wouldn't have hired you.
They believe in you, now believe in yourself and all will be fine,
We all learn quickly and in a few weeks it will all be routine. But don't be shy to use the "I'm new - explain it to me" card. Better to pretend to know less than more than you actually know. It's much more painful to have to confess after a month that you didn't understand something.
Remember. We are not hired because of the things we know as much as for being used to learn.
I'm in the same boat buddy.
Been doing this same dev thing for more than 15 years. Still getting anxious when I start at a new place, though I am good at faking it.
Impostor syndrome is indeed real till they actually see some benefit.
Ah I am in the same exact position. First job out if uni and I've been here for a month now. Pretty nerve-wracking sometimes. But I love it.
