I am new to the team and i am facing lots of issues while doing my workspace setup.I have 3 yrs of experience and all of the guys in my team are atleast 7+ yrs. My team ( 6 onshore+2offshore including me) = 8
If I keep on asking for help again and in the team meetings what my lead will think about me as a developer and everyone will be fed up from me seeing me asking for help repeatedly.
Have you guys faced such situations with your juniors what should I do or what I can do differently.

This is what is called imposter syndrome! Don't worry it pretty common at times, hopefully your seniors will be understanding. You can and you should ask them for help, only think do extensive research by yourself first, analyze all the aspects of the problem you're facing for finding a solution and then ask them for that, so that you're Inc your knowledge as well as saving your senior's time by being direct, so it's easier for him to explain what's needed to be done.
Be in a consistent hustle. Trying is what matters, it's just the beginning once you're thorough you can show your talent in turn by getting results and solutions.
Even the lead, ((hopefully their understanding) would appreciate you trying. Keep a positive approach and all the best.

Say, if you don't ask and won't do work.. That would be more bad and then everyone would stand up and say why didn't you ask for help

Ok , surely will try this.

I can totally feel you buddy.
I am in the same place as you are.
A year more experienced than you are and it's been almost 5 months for me in the project and I have zero clue what is going in and around the project.

I agree with what people here are suggesting but at the same time I kind of disagree too.
It's difficult to imagine what one is going through.

Similar to your case, my team's average age is around 13+years. All are Software Engineers(working directly with code) but no one gives any effort to documentations or KTs for new joiners.
How the hell would I know how the system/environment is gonna setup.

My Manager is UK based and my team is Pune based, and my manager thinks that my team is very helpful while it's not the case.

It's getting me difficult to cope up with the situation.
The only thing is I am not gonna complain to anybody about this, atleast this is what my ethics says.
Though I almost lost motivation to work but now since some days I am trying to give my best in learning about the project as well as some other technologies either by sometimes asking questions or trying to search for chats in Teams, looking at description of some Jira tickets and all.
If I am able to get some learning about the project and able to get some good work, I'll surely give my best to make an impact.
If not I'll try a switch based on the side learnings I am upto.
Trying to make it a win-win situation for myself by struggling a bit.
Hoping for the best!
Let's see what the future holds.

And good luck for your future too. I hope you'll come out as a winner✌️✌️

Sometimes happen with me too. And you're right. We should take it until we think it's worth it. :)

Please do ask as many questions as you can, especially if you are new to the team. Any good, mature team will highly appreciate it. What people won't like is that you did not ask the questions initially and now when the work is being assigned to you, you have excuses like the setup not being completed. Also, if it's difficult for a new dev to set up their workspace and there is no proper documentation then take the lead and make a proper documentation for setup. This will help establish the fact that you are a responsible senior dev that solves problems for others.

Initial information you have to search from your own, post that do you have any issue and challenges keep in note and plan to ask your senior, what is the next and what you can do.
And instead of asking help , ask them I have doubt can you make me clear ,if am in the correct direction or need any changes

This case am sure about you ,any one of the senior will guide you.

Asking question repeatedly without doing any homework or trying will make ppl tired, fedup and irritated .Firstly analyze well from your end ,understand the question/issue. If you try taking steps , ppl will give an extra hands to lift you up.

Well said

You can ask, but don't ask obvious and unnecessary questions that you can easily find on Google.
I still remember freshers turning up to me for any ide error they get.
If it's something functional help you need, you can reach out to them asking about the functionality, and do look, if there is a doc or video available for it. And go through it before asking them.
They should also feel that you are really stuck and not just turning up on any single error or problem you find.

When you ask question, try to explain until what point you researched on the question. Its common and sometimes it can happen to experienced ones too while switch to new product.
