Imposter Syndrome

Healthy Imagination

Not sure why developers struggle feeling like fakes. All people pretend till they become what they imagine. If no creative action is taking then it’s just fantasy.


The dedication developers put into understanding abstract computer science concepts is so admirable. From recognizing patterns to abstracting away implementations of interfaces for returning possible values. People capable of explaining their thoughts and ideas in syntax foreign to the common person.

Definitely Real

We are not imposters. There’s nothing delusional about taking actionable advances to become the idea you hold in your head about yourself.


Expressing the concerns, worries, and fears along the way makes me believe your anything but an imposter.
