How did you feel on the first day of work?

Excited, intimidated, overwhelmed, confused.

Even as an experienced developer, changing jobs is extremely difficult. For about the first 100 days you feel like an idiot who doesn’t know what they are doing.

Exactly how I feel, what do you recommend me to do in this case?

Try to remind yourself that it’s normal. Get to know your coworkers and talk to them. Plan a 1-on-1 with your tech manager every few weeks to get an outside perspective on how you’re doing (i.e. reassurances that you’re doing fine). And just keep swimming.
