Perhaps for a better understanding of the fundamentals, you'd be better off in a less magical environment.

To master the machine, you should have an understanding of OS internals (a book covering Linux would be helpful here). For programming, I'd suggest learning plain old C to understand pointers, memory, and data structures, and something like Ruby to understand OOP. Then maybe something like F# or Elixir to get a grasp on functional programming.

But as far as "professional" goes, if you provide value that someone is willing to pay for, then you're professional ;).
