I am very experienced in the technology which I have worked on and finished in another project. But recently I have been deployed into a new project where the existing code is written in a technology that is new to me and I am taking time to understand the code first.
But the deadline of the project is short. I know that if do not take the time to fully understand the technology then it will take much longer to finish my development tasks than I have been allowed.
How should I handle this? Should I ask my Lead for more time to finish my tasks? If so then my project will not complete before the deadline.
Please Help me with your suggestions.
