When I just started to read about programming and similar stuff, I usually thought that I will write the most fluent, easy-to-read, structurally right code. Moreover, I read as much various articles and tutorials how to do that properly, but the truth was different.
After a while I understood that the most important thing is practice, practice and one more time practice. You can easily learn syntax, best practices, but it is quite hard to adapt them on real life basis. For example, imagine yourself as a beginner PHP programmer who has to create easy to expand CMS. If it is your first project, you will get deep into the thinking of files tree, classes and other similar things. However, you will still write a bad code and that’s just fact which you need to accept.
The main reasons why it is like that:
So do not think of yourself as professional if you made only a couple projects. There are so much to do for you that you just need to make one’s mind and start doing them. My advice would be not to reject easy and low-cost tasks at the beginning of your career. It is important to do as much as you can and only by keeping up with this you will succeed.
If you can not get any real projects, you might think of creating a CMS for yourself which you could use in the future or by helping open source communities. There are so many of them that I will not write them down – Google is your best partner on this. Moreover, do not hesitate to help your friends or acquaintances for free. You will get more profit in the future because they will recommend you for their colleges and their friends. You are making your client list like that.
