    TL;DR::: My programming skills are just a cheap truck that can impress my friends and family. How do I make it useful and prepare myself for potential professional use? ___________Long___________ I’m still in High School, but I found coding very enjoyable and have been trying to learn it for a while. I have descent experience in python (most from making games), but recently I have been going into web development. I already knew basic HTML and css, but I began learning PHP and JS. I have made a few pretty basic websites . The latest was like a weak version of hq overview/discord where you can chat in different threads/servers that users can make, as well as direct messaging. I learnt many key functions through side features like uploading pictures, password encryption and security in account management and a bit on database design through MySQL. This all seemed pretty cool, but at the end of the day was just a fun project based on YouTube tutorials, StackOverflow and some tips from a friend in the industry. It’s just junk code that works, but is probably not elegant and anyone could write with some tutorials. How do I do better to get out of this “cheap trick that impresses your grandparents” to something more proper that can actually help me later(if I were to go down this path)? There are still so many things that I don’t know about and I have no idea how to get to it. Do I watch courses online? Any tips will help, thanks. – by /hq/MonotoneChameleon – –
