Making a career change can be hard, but imagine having 12 weeks of training then entering the work force as a newbie. Curiosity guides pretty much everything we do as developers, however it's important to remember that that curiosity has to flow in both directions when seasoned developers are working with new developers. The more we understand each others experience, the better equipped we are to support one another. In the words of Ted Lasso, "Be curious, not judgmental". We've got to be curios and fail a lot in order to learn and move forward in our careers in the tech industry and we need to remember that it's our super power!
