Discussion on: How do you finish your projects?

My problem was often that I underestimated the effort. Just last month I spent weeks on a K8s project I thought would only take me a few days.

For a frontend beginner I'd recommend:

Try beginner projects.

Stuff you know other beginners actually finished.

Don't be too smug to choose something simple.

Can't create a blog? Try a todo-list!

Can't create a todo-list? Try a simple notepad!

Can't create a notepad? Try to convert some static HTML to "static" React.

For a beginner, even a project without interaction can be educative. At least, you learn how to split the UI into components!
