So I'm a recent graduate and my first job as a software developer in a German company will start in two weeks and I'm so excited about it. However I'm concerned about one little thing. The team has a daily meeting with our boss to explain what everyone did in front of everyone. I did a three days trial at the company and in my first three days I had to accomplish one task. The task was so easy but I was so nervous that I couldn't accomplish much of it. So in those daily meetings I always looked very unproductive and this is my main concern now.
My main concern is that I'm afraid that I may not be as good as my colleagues, most of them had practical education, while my education was mostly in research and now I'm a developer. So they might be able to be more productive programmers than I am. Maybe, I dunno. So my main concern now as I said is the fact that I could be not productive and that my colleagues might think that I'm a slacker or so.
My manager said that I will start working on small tasks to understand the code and such and then move on to bigger tasks.
1- What makes someone a slacker in software development teams? i.e. suppose that I'm in fact slower than my colleagues in writing code and not as productive as them due to lack of experience, would they consider me a slacker?
2- If i'm in fact slower, is there something I can do to compensate for this?
3- If someone is slower than others due to lack of experience, would the manager consider that and give me time to catch to the experience of my peers?
4- Any other advise? It would be great if someone from the German software developers/managers here could answer this question.
I'm mostly concerned of the daily meetings when everyone will mention all those amazing tasks they accomplished but I will only mention probably couple tasks or so.
