How do you show aptitude in a brand new project and gain respect from teammates who do not naturally understand the position of a new person ramping up? How do you balance between proving your abilities while still being brand new to everything and need the help of co-workers to ramp up?
Instead of asking coworkers about something directly, ask them to point you to where you can find the info yourself.
Also if you are experienced enough you can recognize patterns and relate to previous project experience.
Good luck! :)
