When developing software, making changes to your code in order to see what happens is known as programming by coincidence, and is never a good idea. Ensure that you have a defined set of requirements, and then learn how to implement them. This will probably involve reading product documentation or a reputable book on the product, and will take some effort. The pay-off will be that you fully understand what you're doing and why - thus making the production of efficient and robust production software much easier. Aside from specific technologies, buy yourself a copy of The Pragmatic Programmer (http://www.pragprog.com/the-pragmatic-programmer) to learn some product agnostic programming skills; it is an excellent read.
