On helping others

At work I was paired with the new intern. He asked about what the point of $scope.city or some AngularJS variable was.

I told him to set the breakpoints from the JavaScript to the controller to the business class (stored procedures) and all the way back to the JSON. He then saw how AngularJS uses 2-way binding to automatically update & show information.

It feels great that I understand the code base now and I can even explain how things work. A few months ago I would not have been able to understand the previous paragraph, much less write it or say it.
With the code base at work, I feel more like a lifeguard now :), where as before  I felt like a drowning swimmer 😦
