1 Coding Project Idea That Will Get You a Software Development Job

Bobby Davis lays out a multi-step process for building a job-winning project.

He explains that your project should include:

  • coding patterns, like MVC
  • an attractive UI
  • a database and demonstration of CRUD
  • a solution to a business problem

Bobby advises that you should build your project in a thoughtful way:

  • create an SRS with all of the project's features
  • break out your plan into weekly sprints
  • track your progress and bugs in an issue tracker

Lastly, when you are in a job interview, proactively demo your application, and show the employer your SRS and bug tracker.

This is how you build a project that can win you a job!
