Learning someone else’s code

I’ve gone into a group coding project for the first time this year. I have zero familiarity with Github, using branches, merging, making pull requests – and my knowledge of the underlying code (in React & GraphQL) is sketchy at best, although I understand it.

There’s all these terms that I don’t understand. I’ve never used Docker, althogh I understand its purpose. I have no idea what a Redis cluster is, or stunnel, or how the production dev and staging servers work. I’m getting very little help from anyone else at the moment.

It’s a minefield I need to battle through and do my best, but that involves a lot of learning along the way. Lets hope I have the capability to get it done!
