I’m a new dev and learning code from online courses and my seniors.
Currently, my peers are all busy and I’m trying to book in time to get them explain to me the code of the project and how it all works. They give me tasks to look over to do with the code but I never get it done. As in, I read up on it and get my head around what it’s trying to do but I can’t put it in the code editor to make something of it because of my experience. The team members don’t mind though because they don’t expect me to get anything done and then build it out themselves but just want to throw some tools out there for me to learn.
I’m just wondering is this quite normal when you’re first starting out for most companies? I’m trying to make it more classroom based and getting them to teach me. I’m aware they have no time though or are busy so I’m wondering is this normal or should I push harder to try and book in a slot because I’m thinking long term and I don’t want it to be a case of I just read and then have the thing built out for me. I wanna be at a stage ASAP where I don’t have to be taught or ask for help as minimally as possible.
