What I do when I don’t know what I’m doing

Many projects I do require knowledge that I don’t have. Yet. With a standard technical approach and the willingness to plough through the discomfort of being in over my head, these projects are not only fun but also great learning experiences and have been (thus far) successful. This talk is a pep talk, a “you can do it” talk and, I hope, the boost someone needs to to start something they were too scared to try.
