Discussion on: What is your best advice for a junior software developer?

I am currently working as an intern in a game development company. The reality of working in actual company tells me that the stuff I have spent years and years studying in Uni or college might not be applicable in my work.

Stepping into the office feels like literally stepping into an alien spaceship. The task I was assigned was too big and I wasn't able to handle it until had panic attack.

However, I do acknowledge my lack of "productivity" mostly stems from Impostor Syndrome and me overcomparing myself with my fellow devs.

I would say everyone has their own pace. Do not rush yourself, you will get to where you want.
