WHAT AM I RAMBLING

ABOUT TODAY?

  • This isn't a talk about code (sorry!)
  • This is a talk about how we perceive ourselves and our talents
  • This is a talk about personal growth and the power of admitting that knowing nothing is not a sign of weakness
  • This is a talk about how talented you are (yes, you!)

Let's get started

What was all that about?

Let's take a journey...

Can you make a hidden field on this form that will allow the site to query and then store the last page the user's visited? Using JavaScript?

That was just the start...

"I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING"

But that’s OK, because no one else really does either

Imposter syndrome

What other people know

What I know

Who knows this feeling?

This job is hard

That's the easy stuff

What other people know

What I know

I know that feel

One year later

Adapt to survive

The usual suspects

Still something missing

Change the way you think

A fresh perspective

STEAL LIKE AN ARTIST

Tip One

Just ask people!

Share your shit

Tip Two

It's so easy to feel like this...

Share your achievements!

just do

it already

Tip Three

Don't live in fear

Just F****ing do it already!

Keep a journal

Tip Four

Something like this...

Get a hobby

Tip Five

Who has time for all this?

Be open to

new ideas

Tip Six

Life would be so easy...

Would anyone be happy?

YOUR WAY of doing things probably isn't the best way of

doing it

Sorry

EMBRACE THE FACT YOU DON'T KNOW ALL THE ANSWERS

WE ALL KNOW NOTHING

THAT'S THE BEST WAY TO BE

Mad props to this guy

Whaaaaaa

NEVER STOP LEARNING

What other people know

What I know

What I know

You're all talented people

Thanks!
