re: Welcome Thread - v37 VIEW POST



I've been making, fixing and debugging WordPress sites and Angular applications over 10 years.
I have mid to advanced knowledge about JS, Angular, PHP, MySQL, WP, Apache, Git and same other open source technologies.

Also I'm father and a husband that struggles to find a steady job / projects where I'll be able to earn money for my family while doing what I love to do.

I need some guidance how to become better coder in order to go the next level and make awesome stuff.

I hope this is the right place where I can find some answers.

Best regards


This is a month later - but nice to meet you Cedomir! Have you been able to find some projects since you wrote this post? Good luck!


Hi Chris. It is never to late. Thank you for your response :) It is good to know that there are people like you who wants to help.
Nice to meet you , too.

I'm currently finishing Laravel RESTful / Angular (7) project. I'm giving my best to be coded with best coding practice, but I'm not sure if made good choices, if I coded all methods (made all classes) in the way to be considered as a best coding practice.

I need guidance how to use my "raw" Angular and PHP OOP knowledge and learn how to make good reusable code that will be ease for someone else to maintain and extend.

I'm struggling to see the big picture and make tho whole of the application in my mind before I start to coding.

Maybe this will sound funny to the experienced coders, but these are some of the questions that I have not complete answers for, and need help to find them in order to become better coder:

Where and why to use Interface or Abstract class?
When and why to use Models in Angular?


There are much more questions and much more to learn, but for now I don't have systematic approach how to learn all that I need in order to go to the next level and became better programmer.


I'm always open for new challenges.

Thank you for your time.

Best regards

I'm afraid I don't have much Angular or PHP skills! I'm mostly React :)

Could you maybe make a DEV post with those questions? Or: ask on stackoverflow or twitter? Also: if there are any Angular meetups in your city, then you could message the organizers - they are usually happy to help, or find someone who could help you.

Sorry - hope you figure that out! It sounds like you're on the right track though: just keep working on it! The feeling that you don't know what you're doing will be replace with joy once you figure it out :) Good luck!
