Now that I'm coming up on the end of my computer science degree, implementing ideas explored throughout my time in college.

I hesitate to call it a side project since it's typically difficult to do an actual demo. It's purely there for my programming and comprehension practice. Most recently I started implementing data structures using generics in typescript. I wrote them as packages so maybe they will get used in a project of mine in the future!

Watching videos, reading books, and most importantly writing code that is used frequently within development.

If you are new, rewriting built in methods can be great too.
