re: What are some project ideas that beginners can work on to show in their portfolio? VIEW POST


Reinvent the wheel. Perfect for stuff like this. Look at apps you like or sites you like and implement them yourself. Simple text editor in a browser, stuff like that; it doesn't have to be some amazing brand new concept.

You mention todo apps -- have you made more than one? What about making a series of them for different purposes or audiences? What about a todo app aimed for people playing video games to track quests? or a todo app specifically for code? It sounds like that's a schema you like playing with, so I say, rock that!


I have been wondering about this. There are few apps, like editors in a browser, that I've seen and thought "if only I thought of that"

And, for todo apps, there's so much nuances between simple todo to a project manager, to trello board like.

But I always felt that the next project has to be a) unique and b) completely different in genre to the previous.

Thanks for this comment.


Nah. I feel like half the time too, starting one project is how I end up discovering what really draws me and what I want to work on--while working on my last PHP assignment, i kept coming back to this idea in my head over and over and starting that, so as soon as the semester was over I started some other project and went... oh hey, getting pulled this way again, let's just follow it!
