Great article. Imposter syndrome can cripple you as a dev. Just remember that you only need to be one step ahead of your client. For customers that don't really understand excel, vlookup seems like magic 😁
Taking on projects with an unknown aspect is all part of the learning process. You don't have to write perfect code, just get the job done. The community can always help and at the end of it, you can always sub contract the bit you can't do.

Thank you a lot for the kind words. After one months of break and sticking to not taking the first opportunity, I manage to land a nice gig in a project and a tech stack that I’m really glad about !

And like you say, it’s part of the learning process !
