I’ve found it incredibly fruitful to change the project as you go along.

At the very least change the names of a few variables from generic ‘$query’ and ‘e’ to things that are more meaningful or at least different.

This helps you to remember them as you follow along. It also forces you to think about what you are typing, instead of just being a stenographer.
