That's a wonderful presentation! Thank you for sharing it.

It's funny, but the thing that has most helped me get through/past/around my imposter syndrome is simply age: I used to think I was younger than everyone else (which is basically true in my department here at work) and that therefore they had more experience and knew more than I did.

Now that I've been at my current workplace for 10 years, and my job has changed to web development, I'm working with people my age or younger, and I can see that it's not that their experience is greater or better, just different. It's become a lot easier to say, "Hey, I don't know that." and not take it as a personal failing.
