I just started a role as a programmer out of school and in the position I find myself in now, my manager is very 'hands off'. This hasn't posed much of a problem as I have a year of internship experience and a lot of the coaching I needed to integrate into the industry I have already.
All of that said, I love development and am committed to becoming a more effective developer, analyst, employee.. etc, and with that I miss the coaching I was getting at my prior internships. Now that my manager isn't much of a part of what I do, though, any improvement I do is mostly self directed.
So I wonder if anyone has advice or strategies on how to more effectively self-manage and self-coach in a role like this?
edit: to clarify based on an answer, I'm in a position now where I don't have any developers senior to me on my team. One with slightly more experience in this specific environment, but none that are significantly more experienced than me in general
