I built Netflix Clone and honestly, I was able to learn a lot from it.

You can always run your browser in fullscreen mode by yourself. But yeah, that is a nice suggestion. Also, while running the demo, you can run the apps in fullscreen mode

Very interesting, tempted to pick a project and start on it, but not quite sure about the benefits, speaking as an experienced developer that is interested in side projects to expand the skills - but also don't want to waist time on things that have no real use...

Well look at it this way, it never hurts to look at others perspective when building apps.

No one is saying this is the ONLY way, just an interesting thread imo.

That’s true in general. Projects are more targeted to Aspiring Developers hence the β€ž#beginners” tag, they can overcome that fear of procrastination and transform collected knowledge in the project-based approach to feel a sense of achievement. As per Experienced Developers benefits go, at this point I’d say it could be mentoring/coaching/reviewing solutions e.g. on Discord and showcasing your own high-quality code as a solution, creative variations, implementing e2e tests, or anything to put in the portfolio and stand out for the employers. ☺️

I looked over the list, and while there are only a few items on it, it is quite interesting.
I think there will be demand for coding tests from companies as traffic increases.

I have done a lot of these and struggled through them. I hate it at the time, but when I go to the next project I can at least remember how to google the problem I was stuck on. Learning by doing really is the best way!

Thanks a lot for sharing such information here with us. Well, in my opinion there can be few more in this list such as social media platform, blog platform and to-do list application.
Thanks

You're welcome! Yeah, we have a social media platform and a blog platform on our list. The to-do list is kinda the Notely project already so we most likely will skip that one but the other two are definitely great projects to build your coding skills.

Wonderful article πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘, most of the time devs only need a reminder that coding is the best way to standout from crowd.

I really wish this list were more helpful than it is. It doesn’t really cover any of the items on the list, it just mentions them.

Hey Mike, would you like to see a more of proposed technology stack for each item or anything else for them? πŸ‘€

I’d just like some depth to the coverage. Lists are hard because you aim to cover a lot. It’s frustrating to see so many lists, they’re frequently not very helpful. A reader needs to go somewhere else to learn about the material being covered, and it often feels like a waste of time.

To me, these lists frequently feel more like self-promotion than interesting information.
