I want to master Wordpress as a CMS with various custom views, menus, self-made theme designs etc. as quickly as possible so I could claim to my potential employers I can build a functioning Wordpress site.
(I already have experience as a web designer and know some PHP and MySQL and I'm also used to working in Python with Django/DjangoREST frameworks.)
What are some good tutorials/resources/most commonly used plugins etc. to start with?
Honestly, just get a template and you should be fine. Just don't pirate them.
Here's a good tutorial but it comes with a watermark in the footer.php. Just remove the watermark in the php file and you should be fine.
I appreciate the advice and link. Your cool. Your the best.
You're the dude who posted here a while ago asking how to remove that watermark.
As for you OP, I would recommend looking into Wordpress Dev Kits which make building and setting up Wordpress much easier for custom work. A few that I use are:
A super rad kick off point that is super minimally and well tagged. Great start point.
Another great starter point that has a ton of useful tools already added.
I would also look into something called Timber which uses Twig for PHP dev. Helps a ton templating and what not.
Thank you very much for the response, I'll make sure to check out and play around with those tools.

And planning on quickly skimming through this:
just so I have some overview of how things fundamentally work in WP.
