For the first 15 years of my professional career I suffered from a condition called “Imposter Syndrome” which lead to missed opportunities and stunted professional growth. I was scared to mess up and embarrassed of what people might think if they found out that I sometimes (ok...frequently) made mistakes. Fortunately, after working on a team of top notch developers for the past 4 years, I can say that I am an imposter syndrome survivor! In this talk I will share with you 5 important career lessons that have helped me take more risks, face my fears and push myself further than I thought I could go.
