You can always learn more when you code something fun and interesting to you as a developer. You don't need to code a generic app to learn. Games that support logic and puzzle-solvingare excellent learning tools. (View Full File: https://gist.github.com/StevenSSparks/dcb1401a9838c8bec1b8a53c6b82185d)
