Welcome to my personal hell.

I started a new job, in a new industry, a new city, a new tech stack….everything new.

I had no PC (therefore no email or access to training/onboarding/tests/codebase), I wasn’t introduced to the team, I had a copy of industry-standard documentation & my boss went on leave.

Apparently, we were doing Scrum.

What would you do?

Would you make a run for it?

This is my story about how I turned this situation around and how I have applied this to not only myself in new surroundings, but also to ensure that new starters that I work with don’t ever have to go through what I did.
