Foot-candles: the different paths to tech – Alice Goldfuss
The deeper you dive into programming, the more you will run into topics covered by CS degrees. This may make you feel extremely behind and out of your depth. When this happens, keep the following in mind:

Your lack of knowledge in these topics doesn’t negate the work you’ve already done.
You know things CS grads don’t.
It’s likely your understanding of the topic is fresher and more complete than a CS grad who hasn’t touched it in years.
Everyone learns things in different orders and at different times, including CS grads.
Some things you will never need to know.

Act Now To Shrink The Confidence Gap
A few years ago, when Hewlett-Packard wanted to see why more women weren’t in top management positions they made an interesting discovery:

Women working at HP applied for a promotion only when they believed they met 100 percent of the qualifications listed for the job. Men were happy to apply when they thought they could meet 60 percent of the job requirements.

How We Combat Imposter Syndrome – Fog Creek Software – Medium
We ask each new employee’s team lead to answer the same questions, then we go over the answers to make sure they’re in alignment. And we fix any bugs that we identify.

How does this help combat imposter syndrome? It gives our new employees a concrete answer to that most nagging of questions — am I doing OK? Am I meeting the company’s needs and expectations?

The goal is simple: make sure everyone on our team feels confident and comfortable in their place at our company.

The Year I Decided That My Voice Mattered
That changed this year. 2015 was the year that I decided that I was worth listening to. That I could be so bold as to think that someone would want to read what I wrote, that someone would care about my take. If I thought someone was worth a 1,800 word profile, I would trust that instinct and go for it. I would stop questioning myself. I would take up all the space (and try to stop apologizing for doing s0).

Just starting out? Ditch the “full stack developer” label
The vagueness and confusion around the phrase “full stack developer” has been lingering for years. Google it and you’ll find plenty of discussion about why it’s such a loaded term.
Given that long-standing vagueness, labelling yourself as “full stack” might be doing you more harm than good, especially if you’re just starting out.
