This is my first post in this great platform and community. I don't know how will you take this post! But, if I could get some response from the community about this issue, it will be much appreciated.
Currently, I am the only dedicated full time Front end developer (mostly Angular 7 now) in my startup company and will work partially remotely from this week. As I'm working professionally for last 1 year and 5 months, so, I am not so senior yet! This situation explains that I am quite on my own.
The team wants me to contribute to the product with new ideas, technologies or UX improvements. But I can't find a way to contribute as per their expectations. The problem I can state that, I feel like the software is running ok, or the design is ok for users and so on. I have no dedicated senior members on front end to discuss the issues or get ideas. But, in the end the team is not so happy with my performance too.
So, here are three questions from me-
- How do you update your working project time to time?
- Do you read new technologies, research UX regularly and imply them?
- How the freelance developers learn and contribute so professionally (they don't have seniors around them!)?
