Hey I just remembered about this blog post I found end of last year, I posted it to my linkblog in the new year:

More challenging projects every programmer should try - A list of interesting projects to try, with descriptions of what the minimal apps would be like, and suggestions as to what features could be added - I found it super interesting to learn about the different shapes of apps, I am mostly familiar with building web client/server and cli tools, so things like games engines, text editors, compilers, mini operating systems and video game emulators were completely unknown to me, but also the key value store and stock trading apps sound like a lot of fun to built, the article does a really great job of describing all these projects

It’s got some imo quite good project suggestions, so if you decide to continue building smaller projects rather than tackle a full on SaaS, one of these could be a good way to go.

It was featured in my newsletter back in the 2021 new year edition.
