I started a new job about a week ago in an R&D software house which is a completely different world from what I am used to.

I worked as a coder in small teams, sometimes with Agile but always sunk in multiple projects at once - requiring constant switching of sprint goals week to week.

Now, I am alone (first person in a "maybe-in-the-future" team), doing research and preparing a demo for the client. It's hella lot of responsibility yet I found it weirdly liberating - being on my own, in control of what I do.

It may change in the future when project will inevitebly grow, but for right now, a week in, I started smiling while coding and learning, which I apparently haven't done in years.

    To be honest, doing something like that takes a lot of talent in my opinion. Many developers are good at taking directions, but suffer when they’re expected to think for themselves. So kudos to you and good luck!

    Yep, you started because you just started.

    Don't worry, time will fix your issue.
