Ever wanted to create a project and wondered where to start from? yeah me too. I had been learning how to code for about 2 months and had no project to show what I had learnt from all these free amazing websites like khan academy and FreeCodeCamp, it wasn't that I didn't know the syntax already, No. I was stuck in a tutorial hell! I was basically watching other people on Youtube do a tutorial, but I couldn't do mine and I couldn't call these projects that I had built from watching other people online build, mine. Because it wasn't mine, I was basically doing copy and paste of someone else's code and I was honest enough with myself about this.
So here are tips on what you should do in other not to waste time as I did. Start working on a project now! create a folder of and name it anything, make sure it is something simple cause you don't wanna give up halfway, and you absolutely want to finish it and give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done, so I'll go ahead to tell you what to do next. Write down your features. I promise you it's as simple as that, for example, my first project was a To-do list app, yes it's boring and people are tired of doing it, but I needed to build something. Will I show employers? No. Did I get satisfaction from doing it? Absolutely yes. why? Because it's mine and I worked really hard on it and I am proud of myself for that and you know the best part? not only did I learn a lot and achieve a lot from it, but I also built the first real project that I could call mine, because now I've actually done something and I could now go ahead and build something that I am really passionate about, because if I can build something as simple as a To-do list, then I can build something even more complex than that and so can you.
So have you decided to also build a To-do list or maybe something else? Good.
The next thing to do is to think of the features you want. For me, I wanted an edit button, a delete button, a search bar and my text, see? Simple.
Now, remember you don't want to watch someone else basically do it all for you. No! you want to do it yourself and google your way out of the problem. None of these as worked for you? this is where you ask for help, I promise, there is someone out there who's willing to help because we all started from somewhere and we all deserve to be in the tech space and you and I are gonna smash it and we are here to win and dominate this space. Pat yourself on the back because you are doing great.
