Discussion on: Escaping tutorial purgatory as a new developer

And here I thought I was the only one. Thanks for posting this! What helped me was to keep a list of ideas of side projects I’d like to develop. Anything from a full web app to a small hack or mod to make my life easier. As soon as I felt like I had enough understanding of how I might go about it, then I went off on that project instead. It was a great way to reinforce all of the tutorials knowledge that was rapidly decaying, and more fun.
