Imposter Syndrome As A Front End Web Developer

You know becoming a front end web developer and studying my craft and learning my primary languages, HTML, CSS, and Javascript, I was never aware of the term that seems to be catching traction in the sphere of web development. Especially for beginning and junior developers.

Ironically I never knew of the term until I began listening to podcasts and it was mentioned due to the fact junior developers are hired into a new positions and they feel somewhat unqualified to be in the position by being surrounded by other developers who have been in the field for several years.

Honestly some may call me crazy but I, for lack of better terms, do not believe in the idea imposter syndrome. In a sense it just reminds me of disease that was made up like a placebo effect.

Now I’m not knocking the fact of the feeling of not being prepared or unqualified for a position, but I don’t want to place myself in a category as if I am plagued with some disease. The feeling of not being prepared and unqualified is real but it does not mean I have imposter syndrome. I think it really boils down to fear.

So in this article I wanted to speak on how I approached this topic and really overlooked and overcame this idea.
