  1. Start creating your own personal blog/project right from the beginning of your career. This helps you learn a lot. You can use markdown (Cheatsheet here: tipseason.com/markdown-basics-chea... ) to create your own blog.
  2. Once you see some documentation try to automate a small task using that specific topic. Eg: If you are reading about timers, try to create your own alarm using the info.

Writing a blog is a very underrated idea. I understand most people won't really want to do it.

🀷Some people don't really like writing. But it's helps you keep track of all you've learnt

Ya it depends on interest😊 I have seen both kinds of people who likes it and who don’t like it. But the goal is to have a clean notes of that you learnt right from the beginning. If I were to start fresh keeping notes is some thing I would like to change for myself as we tend to forget lot of things .
Working on a product or an app is also other ways to keep track of coding
