Talk: The Silent Syndrome in Node (and everywhere)
When I think about Node, I usually think of really big projects: npm, dat, frameworks like express and hapi; tools like socket.io, gulp, and browserify; these complex modules that enable people to build amazing applications. In light of these awesome projects, it's hard to not feel like a Node novice or impostor by comparison.
But developing with Node doesn't have to mean contributing to core or building the next MVC framework: being a part of Node's amazing community can mean using Node for learning, enhancing your workflow with automated tooling, and getting small web apps up and running quickly.
This is a broad talk on impostor syndrome and Node; getting involved for the first time or feeling like a "real" developer when you're already there; on the influences and lessons I've learned personally by learning Node and becoming acquainted with the Node community.
