Bridge education to take someone who learned CompSci in the 90’s, knows how to code but doesn’t know how to software dev?

Bridge education to take someone who learned CompSci in the 90's, knows how to code but doesn't know how to software dev?

Something that has been bothering me for a while, hundreds of guides online talk about how to "hello world" in various languages or launches you directly into Git workflows. But I have not yet, to date, found good resources for bridging someone from a "scripter" to a "software developer".

Whether it is due to hacking out scripts in their spare time or their education is just slightly out of date.

I am thinking about the differences in writing code as part of a team, defensive coding practices, structuring code (and your files) in a modern way that has changed dramatically in the last couple of decades.
