When we're learning how to develop web apps, we need to practice as much as possible. Tutorials are limited in their scope since they can only put so much in a book or blog entry.
Also, we need to be able to solve problems ourselves. Therefore, we need to come up with some project ideas for writing practice apps that'll enhance our knowledge.
Below are some examples of apps that you can build to improve your web development skills.
By writing a countdown timer, we can practice using timers by using the
For instance, we can add features like setting the time to count down from, and then display warnings when the time is getting close to 0. Also, we have start buttons to start the count down and a pause button to pause count down if we wish.
If we want more practice, we can save the paused time so we can continue later, so we use things like cookies or local storage.
We can also add more features like multiple countdown timers and things anything else we can think of.
Also, we can add other features for fiddling with images like flipping them, rotating them, add filters and much more.
When a user tries to add an image, we can check if it's actually an image before putting it on the canvas.
A notes app is great practice for writing applications since it lets us practice saving and opening files.
We can also save data to a database and retrieve them from there.
If we want to get fancy, we can also add account management to let people save private notes.
Also, we have to let people edit and delete notes.
When the user closes the browser, it should save the data, and when the user opens the browser, it should show the last edited note.
These practice app ideas provide plenty of practice for create applications. They involve retrieving, saving, editing and deleting data. Also, we get to manipulate images on the HTML canvas.
Finally, we get to practice using timers and date functions by practicing creating our own countdown timer.
