Then keep going and you'll improve faster than you may expect Once you've done all the courses you wanted in this app leave it and learn further with other resources :^)

Actually, i found that doing a real life project beyond the tutorials, is way more beneficial for learning. The more real problems you tackle, the greater your program will be. It doesn't have to be something complicated but it must be something useful to you, so that you use it and imrove it along the way, increasing your set of skills.

As long as you enjoy what you are doing, that might be fine

My advice is to start making clones of simple programs(games): Hangman, snake , Tetris, quizz app aka sololearn, dictionary, shopping list, reminder, stop watch... also coding Katas Check the book about creating of Linux: Just for fun. Linus Torvalds was making clones of computer games when he was a kid and eventually cloned the Unix operating system. Have fun :) https://github.com/sumitbsn/just-for-fun-linus-torvalds/

A real life project: home energy consumption monitoring, queuing system, making a dumb car smarter, account of your savings/expenses... Use your immagination to make your life easier.

1. READ, READ, CODE. 2. DEDICATION. Know your why, why do I code? 3. ALWAYS FINISH. If you start it don't leave it hanging finish it even if it looks ugly. Trust me just finish it. 4. DELAY GRATIFICATION. Don't brag about your code till it's done. 5. LOVE WHAT YOU DO. That's basically it.
