This is a talk about deep, dark, paralyzing, hysterical (laughing with you) shame. The specific horrors and pitfalls for and from the new (and new-to-you) developer that we rarely discuss. These are the small, unspoken details no one covers in the onboarding manual for either side of the party. There are concrete opportunities you and members of your team have in those first few weeks to be career superheroes for (or as!) a new employee, with very little effort, that can lead to professional (in addition to ethical) advancement for everyone.
