Introduction

Web development is the most promising and attractive field to work with for students and even professionals. Everyone looks forward to being a web developer and the best way to do that is to do the hands-on practice of developing the websites and projects. The more you practice, the better will your real-world development skills be.

So, here's a list of 8 interesting project ideas for you guys to work on ;)

1. Survey Form

This is a good project for a beginner in web development. You can make this survey form that asks the user for some information like Name, Age, email, mobile number, or some other information depending on requirements. Then connect it to a backend database to store the information. This is a full-stack development project. It would help you polish your HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and backend database management skills. But if you don't know backend yet, then you can make this project by just HTML and CSS too!

2. Countdown Timer

This is a very simple project. It is a virtual clock that counts down from a certain date to indicate the beginning or end of any event. This project is a webpage that basically has to update the time every second. The main aim is to show a continuously decrementing display of the days, hours, minutes, and seconds to a particular date or time. JS can be used for this project. If you want to improve this project, then add features like add, start or stop buttons, display an alert when selected time is reached, etc.

3. Build a Drawing Tool

I think eveyone has used MS-Paint to create some awesome artwork as a child. Guess what? You can create an online canvas to do the same! HTML, CSS, and JS can be used to build this app. Drawing can be done using the mouse. Features of this project are- change color, erase, change the size of the drawing tool, reset/clear the canvas. Another good feature would be to allow your users to share their work on social media or save their work in any image format.

4. Browser Extensions

All of us have been using at least some browser extensions for a long time. But did you know that the browser extensions are made using JavaScript? This project will test your skills and understanding of JavaScript. Extensions can be made to make your day-to-day tasks easier and well organized. You can make a to-do app extension so you can directly see your list of things to do from your browser without opening another app. Make any extension you want and host them on the Chrome or Mozilla web store!

5. Social Buttons

Every website has social media share buttons for sharing content with others via social media platforms. Creating websites that have share buttons is a challenging project for any developer. You have to make a dynamic page by using JavaScript coding which includes the social media share button. We can also use HTML for adding images to create a better effective template for the website.

6. Product landing page

For this project, you must have good knowledge of HTML and CSS. You'll have to create columns and then align the components of the landing page within the columns. There would be basic editing tasks like cropping and resizing images, using design templates to make the layout more appealing, etc.

7. Quiz game

It is a JavaScript quiz game that can take multiple answers and show the correct result to users. Applying JavaScript knowledge in real-world scenarios is usually much more challenging than gaining it. While building this project, you will deal with complex logic and learn a lot about data management and DOM manipulation. You can make the game simple or complicated depending on your JavaScript skills and ability to handle complex logic.

8. Tribute page

For reference, Google the term β€œtribute page,” and you will definitely find a comprehensive list of links showing you how to build tribute pages. Basically, it is a webpage dedicated in honor of someone you love, admire, or respect. It can be made for anyone, whether a person or a beloved pet. This project is perfect for sharpening your HTML and CSS skills and knowledge.

Conclusion

Gaining knowledge helps but it's still practicing and implementing this knowledge is what makes you a better developer. It's useless to be known as a developer if you just have knowledge but zero problem-solving skills. If you are a beginner or an intermediate web developer, then practice a lot by building various projects. They will help you become a good developer in this most demanding field.
