Like about a week ago my boss assigned me to a task, which to me feels way to big/complicated for me considering my minimal skills and lack of experience so far (I just graduated my bachelors degree in software engineering last fall, no work experience aside from some internships).
How can I politly communicate that this might be to much for me alone and/or that if I am supposed to do it by myself I need a lot more time? I don't want to sound lazy or make it seem like I just don't want to do it. That's not the case. But half of the specifications is pretty much hieroglyphs to me and another big chunk of what I understand are things I've not used yet or not learned.
My boss was on a trip the whole week, so I was not able to communicate with him (business trips usually call for 8-10h nonstop work at the clients workplace - very very busy) and wants to meet tomorrow for a little update meeting. However I haven't really started programming aside from the small amount of work I was able to understand and start.
