We have far too many courses on how to “learn to code” and “get started” but where is the advanced stuff? How do I become an automation wizard?

If you're anywhere as mentally ill as I am, then you procrastinate learning new languages out of sheer lack of immediately accessible ambitions. Basically, I procrastinate on basic programming assignments to try and master the language on a deeper level by doing ambitious and/or practical projects.

I know how to code, but now I am lost.

  • How do I optimize my code?
  • How do I properly structure my code for readability and maintenance?
  • How do I overcome programmer's block?

Automating the Boring Stuff with Python is a great example of kind of what I'm looking for. The first third is "learning to code" but the rest of it is (you guessed it) learning legitimate automation. What I'm looking for are jumpstarts into the real-world applications of programming, because I feel like you learn a lot more from your mistakes in the field than you should.
