Where do I go after completing the turtlebot tutorials?

I have finished all the turtlebot tutorials (everything works fine, except the depthImage and point cloud is very slow, each frame takes about 10 seconds, don't know what's going on there) on the wiki and also the ROS tutorials on it's wiki. Admittedly, I need to go through the ROS ones again but that's not the point.

The point is I am as clueless as ever as to what I should do to actually write something that makes the turtlebot move. If anyone can give me some kind of workflow or some pointers as to how to go about it, it would be great.

For example, the best thing I thought to do would be replicate the teleop code only that this time I'd do all the compilation myself, hell, I'd just write the exact same code to make sure that I get practice and understand the code. But there seems to be some problem with the dependencies that I am adding. I took note of "depends1" of teleop code and added them to the catkin_init_package, but catkin_make does not work and gives me some dependency errors.

This was the first step and I know I'll encounter many problems once this one is solved, so please be patient with me :)

Thank you random netizen and fellow roboticist in advance. :)
