Expose Your Ignorance

This week I read the section called Expose Your Ignorance. This sections is something i can relate to very well. I am a senior in college and by that time many people would think that you would be able to program thing by yourself.  You should know about at least 2-3 languages by now and have the knowledge to work in the real world however just like the section “White Belt” there are always going to be people better than you and you don’t know everything yet. It is still a learning experience and for me in the class that we are taking now the section we are doing for the project. Which is encryption services is still something I don’t know much about at all. Just saying that you know nothing about something would be better then you hiding and saying nothing. That is what a team is about. To help and encourage each other to do what you can do and that way you can help them when they need help. During hackatons that i go to when meeting new people if we wanna work on a project we all have to introduce ourselves to each other. We also have to tell people what we can and can’t do because if we depend on someone to the most important part of the project and they don’t have the knowledge to do it in the end we would not have a project to present. Also just because you don’t have the knowledge to work on the project you should not just sit around and do nothing. Take this time to learn a new language, download the library’s needed to work on the project, watch videos, and work with a project partner to see if there is anything you can do. Just like the section says people are more inclined to make themselves look competent then just to tell others that you don’t know what you are doing because there are people looking up to you for advice or employers looking to you for the knowledge. That is why this section teaches you that you that lying about knowledge inst worth it and to accept your faults and work on them another day.
