learning python. how to get to the next level

by 2 comments
I am learning python and have learnt the basics.
Now, my goal is to be able to build tools which could help
with internet marketing.
But my main aim is to become good enough to become a freelancer.

The problem is that even though I can solve the problems in books
I have no idea how to do things that freelancers are being asked to do in some freelance sites.
Some people say that one should start doing some open source projects,
but that seems tough for now.
There seems to be a huge jump between learning from a book or tutorials
to start doing professional stuff and become a freelancer.

Please give me some ideas about how to bridge the gap.

    You may want to start with a commonly used framework, such as Django, and learn to build web applications first. This will give you measured value in the freelance market as well as give you the opportunity to become a professional at reading documentation.

    Freelancing is a little bit like being thrown into the fire: you need to come well prepared, but willing to learn as you go, since no one is expected to know everything. Relying on documentation is an essential part of the job.
