I was new at that programming job, I was young and it was my first work in a very impressive environment. Everyone was much older than I and with all the experience of the world, being the elite of engineers and experts in many fields. It was overwhelming for me.
One day they asked me to do a program to do some satellite tracking routines and I had no idea how to do something like that.
My boss, an old and very strict General looked at me as if I was some kind of ignorant fool when I asked him how that was done, since it was the first time in my life I heard a task like that and, he just told me everyone did little programs like that in a regular basis so, it was my job to figure that out.
I felt really terrified since I had no idea where to start and I didn’t want to be the only useless ignorant in the crew (their words, not mine).
