One thing that I would like to ask.
What can you do when you have always worked alone, or should I say as the only developer in a team of 3, at most? What happen when you have to sometimes manage many roles at the same time (developer and product owner at the same time) or develop a web application alone (complete with design and testing, with the choice of the language) just after two years? because there is no one else that can do it?
In my case, mentorship doesn't exist, well apart from what I can read on dev.to, and I often must do my best to assume the role of a senior, even if I don't really feel that I should, because I have been placed on the project as an "expert".
I have no idea where I stand really. Dev.to is actually really important for me as my only reference of what a good developer should do
Well you have the luck to gain all the experience. Right out at the beginning you will fail a lot, but the good thing is that only you knows this and it's up to you to handle it. There is no better way to become as fast as possible a Senior than just thrown in cold water even though you don't have the experience. You will be able to handle it when you do self retrospectives whats not working and where you can get better.
