I am currently working in a software development company. During team meeting my reporting manager asked me to look into issues related to node.js (one of the technology) whereas till date I worked with .Net (Other development technology) only. I faced this type of issues multiple times in my career where either reporting manager or someone above him in hierarchy ask me to do the same. I am not sure what will the best thing to say in this situation.
Two questions here:
How to tell that this activity is going to take time for me as I am not familiar with this technology?
Some of the points which I can think of is
I don't have expertise in node.js so will have to explore it and it is going to take time.
I am not familiar with node.js so will have to learn it.
I am a .NET guy and haven't got any previous experience in node.js.
Should I mention this up-front in front of other members of the team during the call or should I mention this in an one-on-one meeting with manager?
