Don't rush into a big project. Often I see at work people are assigned projects for which they don't necessarily possess the knowledge or experience required, with expectation that they can master js, react or whatever in order to complete the task in a timely manner. They don't get the time to learn the fundamentals, rushed into big projects with thousands of LOCs. Take your time, no one will be mad if you take twice as long for being thorough in your first task.

I agree. But I would say that newcomers should force themselves into side projects without deadlines to learn real-world application of tools they would like to learn!
