Lessons from my first developer role

As a recent bootcamp grad, I got my first role (volunteer) at Reputationaire (check us out!) as a full-stack engineer. It has been 3 weeks since I started my role there (whoaaa! time flies).

In that time, I also got selected to mentor learners participating in the Google Africa Developer Scholarship program.

Here’s a summary of my first couple of weeks at my new role.

  1. You will feel lost and confused. You’ll doubt yourself a number of times. Rememeber that that’s normal. In my first week, I had to setup Docker, blockchain, MySQL amongst other technologies that I had previously never worked with. It took me a week to get everything working — At this point, I had not written a line of code.
