A whole lot of none! I was lucky and got recruited pretty fresh out of bootcamp. The company that hired me was pretty good at being aware of my skill level and gave me tasks that were challenging, but I could handle. The seniors were also great with helping me out if I didn't understand something or got stuck. My love of C# did give me a good leg up - it's much easier working with a language you know than lots of brand new stuff!
