In the tech industry, we are always involve in learning things.

Software engineers shall participate in lifelong learning regarding the practice of their profession and shall promote an ethical approach to the practice of the profession.

from Code of Ethics Principle

In fact, it is a lifelong learning process if we want to stay relevant in the industry. However, when learning new things, we often ask questions that we think are stupid.

Dare to ask questions

Even though you might think that the questions were just too stupid to be asked, but if we did not take the first step, we would not know the answer. We might get the answer eventually, but it will be much quicker by just asking the doubts.

Recall the answers that we get

Recalling the answers that we get from our stupid questions will make us fully understand the answers. Most of the time, when we get the answers from questions, we are not fully understand. By recalling the answers after we have gained some basic understanding of the topics, we might able to see the full image, and get better understanding.

Final words

At the end of the day, it is just a learning process. Questions are meant to be cleared. Without asking questions, we are not actually learning and thinking, just deadly follow instructions.
