re: Are we "developers" gatekeeping "knowledge" from our juniors and peers? 🤦 VIEW POST


Thanks for posting this, I completely agree with your sentiment throughout this piece. The tech industry is demographically changing but it still lags behind in terms of emotional and social intelligence. Not everyone can be socially aware but everyone is capable of improving the way they provide feedback to others (and especially those of us who are newer). Always keep in mind that everyone starts somewhere and no one, not a single person on this planet knows everything about the particular field or hobby that they partake in.

A lot of juniors already suffer from debilitating imposter syndrome (especially those of us that don't come from traditional computer science backgrounds or from communities of color) as it is, and I would expect most seniors to be aware and understanding of that.
