230: Feeling Like an Idiot


In this episode Donn talks about that pit of the stomach feeling we all get when we feel like we should know something but we  don’t. It’s that voice in our head as developers that makes you feel like an idiot even when you’re not.

Donn gives examples of how even senior engineers are subject to this feeling and how they are often the ones to not speak up about it simply because of their experience level and seniority. 

This episode talks about why we get this feeling and how to combat it going forward.
