otavio6753yI do. But fighting it :)
-eth19253yI write C for embedded systems. *Every* time the boss tell me "The CEO wants this feature implemented, can you do it?" I answer yes. Then I cry a little inside, having no idea how to implement the request. Then I unfold the software tasks, states, conditions and triggers in my head. I write some diagrams. I write down all corner case, sorted in order of what must be taken into account in the design phase and what in the polishing phase. Then I do it.
Nike got it right. Just fucking do it.
viking818463yGood job ☺️
A little doubt about your skills is healthy. You don't want to be the guy who "knows everything", because they don't exist anywhere but inside their own heads.
Every day I feel more and more like an imposter.
The more I learn, the more I realise I don't know. 😖
owithg22813yI don't feel like I understand any of this shit, but the other devs don't egg my car so I have started to just act like I know what I am doing...
