Discussion on: What do you do to practice new programming languages and/or frameworks?

Whenever I get to learn new language/framework I think of small projects I could work on. I was a tester back then, but also studied ReactJS on the side. I had a task to test cross-platform. The routine was to enter url, username and password, then I could select on the web form to perform manual testing.
So, I created a small software with some browser icons there and put text inputs so I can enter url and login credentials all at once. And when I click a browser icon, it automatically opens that browser and enter the url and login credentials for me.
I used a selenium webdriver.

And from my experience, you could also think of some routinary actions or problems you face everyday on your job or existing/potential clients that you can solve by creating an app for them.
