– Now that you have survived your first six months in your first job in tech, we talk about what the final half of your first year will be like. You will start to feel comfortable with your newly learned skills. We share some great ways to improve your skills and how you can start taking ownership and control of areas.
We talk about the transition from not just learning to being an active contributor to your team at work. The biggest challenge is not speaking up when you think you have an opinion on how something can be done or how to fix an issue. It is not unusual for a Senior Developer to have spent so much time on a code base that she does not realize how simple a solution can be and we as junior developers can bring that perspective.
