Dear  friends,
after 5 years of self study yesterday i become a developer

will start in one month
want to thank this fanstastic forum that togheter with stackoverflow allowed me to realize this dream.

I want to thank all the senior that have been really supportive to me, in particular I have to make a special mention to three of you: Campbell Ritchie, Junilu Lacar and Liutaras Vilda

Focusing allow to get objectives done, even when the external circumstances are not optimal

Do you have  an ArrayList  of [b]generic [/b<]Suggestions> on how to survive the first month in an agile environment speaking in a language that is not English and I am moderately fluent? The company is based in Haarlem in the Netherlands, people are really nice.
Looking forward, just resigned from my previous job, I do not need to study always all the weekends and nights anymore after a no coding work, because as most of the developer i will have also 1680+ hours per year to dedicate myself from the morning at this fantastic activity

Congratulations, that is a great achievement. Good luck on new job!

I think these kind of posts when somebody achieves something great and appreciates the Ranch is cow worthy. Probably two

Congratulations Giovanni! That's great.

I think my biggest piece of advice is to find a mentor. It doesn't have to be a formal arrangement. Having someone on the team who you can ask questions and who can make sure you are following along could be helpful.

Also, ask questions when unsure! Way better to ask then sit around wondering. And asking about English idioms is ok.

Thanks all of you, and for the delicious pies.
I will work in Dutch and I have been hired for a position where I do not have seniors.
I will do Android/Ios and possibly Machine Learning,Artificial Intelligence based on my skills.

I am prioritizing what to do to be prepared, really excited

A mentor doesn't have to be senior to you...

Good point Jeanne!
