A real question how to grow from a Helloworld-scriptie into a real hardcore programmer?

Okay... Now for real! So far i've done all kinds of platforms for learning languages (codecademy, pyschools, rubymonk, udacity, learnstreet, etc.), but those only taught me the syntax. Even though i've learnt a lot, i couldn't have the opportunity to learn how to do actual applications. I don't want to sound stupid, but frankly i don't know what my next step should be. Are there any interactive platforms/communities which teach you more in depth and how to do actaul apps?

if you have already understand the syntax well, than you can try to get, read and share some code in github, or other open source code. start an open source project, share and get feedback from community.

To be honest I doubt you would get any use of the so-called "advanced" courses, without prior knowledge or interest in a particular skill. Once you know the syntax already, you should practice and choose your focus, whether it be gaming, app-building, networking, databases, machine learning or other. Only then you can start looking for some valuable in-depth courses.

Just start writing programs! You have had a lot of learning experience, so I think you will do great! You can check my program ideas thread to try and find something to program. Any useless or useful program will do to help you become a better programmer.

You should look at frameworks and/or libraries inherent to what your purpose/field of programming is.

yeah just start. start with those little ideas that pop into your head. start and build bigger and bigger apps utilizing different types of code.
