What advice would you give to a new teammate?
I think every developer faces a moment of self-doubt when they are fixing a bug for several days without a solution in sight. My teammate told me, “Your mistakes are okay. You are a human after all. Just take a deep breath and take a coffee. You won’t notice how you find a solution”. This advice still helps me a lot. So believe in yourself and don’t be afraid to make mistakes.
