I am a Jr.
ASP.NET/C# Developer and I have been working with a Company for the past 9 months. I have been appointed to try and develop their Legacy System (built in
Visual FoxPro) in
I am the only developer working on this project and it's a bit overwhelming, but I complete the tasks assigned to me within a reasonable time frame using Google, SO and other forums as references.
My senior developer is a
FoxPro developer and has very little knowledge of
.NET. I do not get any sort of help from my Senior developer. I am working completely on my own.
By working as a solo developer I have learnt quite a few things and feel like I am moving forward. However as I am working alone I feel that there are so many things that I might have missed out on having not worked in a team.
I feel I need someone who can just guide me on
do's and the
don'ts. I feel the need to have a mentor who can help me with the many questions that I cannot ask on SO or earch on Google.
- Is it normal to feel this way or I am just not doing enough?
- How important is mentoring for a junior developer?
- How important is it for a Jr. Developer to work in a team?
