I definitely stepped out of my comfort zone the last few weeks. My boss is a real nice guy and gives me a random project, which had to be built from the ground up. By doing this I definitely learnt quite a few things, for instance how something simple as bootstrap should be used. Previously bootstrap was on the list "to learn someday". I got kind of forced to do it, and I do not regret it.
For the record, my boss is a real nice guy who (probably) intentionally gave me a whole project to do by myself.
That's how you spot a good leader. Someone that helps you grow! Good for you :)
