re: Getting Trapped as an Expert Beginner VIEW POST


Totally on point article, for me the most humbling moment was when I made a huge conceptual mistake and a serie of wrong choices plus some pride that my solution is the ultimate and only way in addition to a team that dosen't question my decisions strongly enough.
A two hours long meeting and deep review by the Techlead was enough to show me how limited my knowledge is and how much of a stuck up I was on wrongly sticking by my mistakes (it was pretty tough to admit that I screwed up).
It took me an extra week of work to reverse the damage and create a clean version of the software (technical debt free).
I am thankful to that experience for teaching on the importance of taking no pride on ones choices and keeping an open ear to others opinions
