Every developer (not quite every developer, but bear with me), at some point or another, is confronted with a large, open-source, or generally collaborative codebase. Though the feeling of staring at a massive block of ambiguously structured code can be suffocating, the sense of accomplishment from understanding, learning from, and adding to such a codebase can be empowering.

In my case, the feelings of suffocation and eventual empowerment came from navigating and learning from the rather large codebase that is Story Squad.
