Hey, thanks for commenting! I would say yes, I did have imposter syndrome at the beginning of the project. That was when I wasn't familiar with both TypeScript and the sampling profiler I was working on.

I dealt with it by constantly learning, listening to people's feedback and self-congratulating whenever I improved or finished a task. I think the most effective thing was maintaining a positive attitude and thinking that it'd be a learning experience rather than something super competitive or result-oriented! Hope that helps!
