FULL DISCUSSION
 

Just a quick note to say I've been in this field for over 30 years, like some others, from being a hobby to getting consulting jobs, to FINALLY getting CS degrees. I STILL feel impostor syndrome, especially with the pace of changes in new languages and frameworks and management styles (herding cats). The most money I ever made in my life made me feel inadequate at first, expecting high expectations, but it turned out to be just the opposite with me being a guru of my specific skill. So, if you have the drive and passion, you are probably at the level of many so called experts. I know it's hard, but you have to "blow your horn" with confidence and honesty. Good luck!
