Great article Sébastien, especially on tutorial purgatory. A method I've used frequently to get un-stuck I'll now call the "training wheels" method 😜 :
1) Follow app tutorial -> open a doc, take notes of steps (in my own words)
2) Enhance app slightly -> set my own mini-challenges
3) Build my own app -> apply new techniques learned

I like that. Using the Feynmann technique to show that you've understood the subject; and then applying that newly found knowledge to what you already know. A good way of expressing creativity, and critical thinking.
