|I've been programming for about 4 years now. During that time I've become an integral part of my team and have constantly been learning. Despite this I always read comments on HN and feel like there is SO much to learn that I'll never have the time for. I work at a big company and desperately want to leave so I have been dedicating time to prepare for interviews (pretty much just CTCI at this point). Even if I do get better at my interviews and land a job elsewhere, I'm worried that either I'll 1) not be as good as the other engineers there and they will quickly notice or 2) will basically feel the same as I do now. Hopefully the latter doesn't happen. My work environment is pretty negative right now so maybe a change of scenery will help.|
Anyway, back to the original question. Does anybody else come on here and feel overwhelmed? Too much to learn, a lot of other people out there who are so much better than you etc. Could be just me, the Bay Area, or tech in general.
