That is all you need to remember.

Never, ever, send your code to others and ask them to debug whatever functional or performance issues you have.

That is the most effective way to signal you being a liability rather than an asset. It is like asking others to wipe your ass for you.

Spend time figuring out what is going on inside your own code, and ask specific questions if you need help. Take a look at, a good forum for coding questions.
