Knowledge of how the magic work comes with time and experience. Every time it breaks and you have to google and debug it you end up learning a bit about how it works under the hood. When it comes time to scale an application or use a tool in an advanced way you will be able to do it bc you have a full understanding of how the tool works.

Don't rush to learn all the magic at once, it will come with time and experience. Every time something doesn't make sense dig in a little more and try to figure out how it's working. Every time you do this you will learn a little bit more and soon you will realize its not magic at all but just well-designed software.

I couldn't agree more! And to be honest, this is the way I learn the most effectively.
