Deep End Diving: Getting Up to Speed on New Codebases

One of the beautiful things about software engineering is that we’re always learning. At all career stages, there are always new gems, open source tools, and company-specific tech stacks to get up to speed on. It can be overwhelming sometimes! The good news is that there are concrete strategies you can use to make plunging into a new project an exciting rush (rather than a panic-inducing nightmare). With a little bit of focus put into the right areas, you can help every new team member- from the most junior dev to top dog seniors- jump in and contribute faster.
