Happy Halloween, everyone!
I think the question fits the theme, so I'd like to ask everyone:
What are your fears as a developer?
Here are the things I'm scared of (reasonable or not aside):
- not being able to find my next freelance client.
- production bugs.
- performance anxiety when showing interviewers and clients my work output.
- Imposter Syndrome (fear of being a fake or being too dumb)
that my Imposter Syndrome isn't even real, and that I actually suck.
running into a bug that has no StackOverflow, Github issues, and/or online solutions (which means I need to figure it out on my own).
posting a question online (especially on SO) where others might judge me.
the feeling of I'm not improving enough (lack of visible progress).
Almost forgot to add:
- not understanding what I'm reading
I'd like to know what you all are afraid of as fellow developers!
Note: I'm learning a lot from what everyone's sharing. Thank you, everyone!
Feel free to reach out to me in other media!
