My secret: follow project tutorials, and build your own thing on top of it.
2:20 Tutorials are entire project tutorials in 2 minute and 20 second videos.
So you don't have to sit through a 40 minute tutorial when you already know about 70% of the information and end up skipping through half the video.
If you follow these tutorials, you'll already have some pretty unique interesting projects to show off on your GitHub.
But for realsies - follow a tutorial, build a project, and BUILD YOUR OWN THING ON TOP OF IT.
