Resources to practice web development

Excellence is not an art. It is the habit of practice — Aristotle

Best way to be good at any piece of tech is to practice it. In order to practice the tech , you need challenges , ideas for side projects. In this blog post , I have compiled a list of sites which provides more challenges and ideas for us to practice web development.

Doing more side projects is one way of avoiding tutorial hell.

Let's dive in.

So many resources everywhere to the point one does not no which one to pick and focus on. Everything sounds so cool.
Currently I am doing freecodecamp. I think I'll finish it first.

First pick one and finish it. Then go after another. Since you are doing freecodecamp finish that first and then go after another.

After freecodecamp, which one is the best to go? I don't think going for another learning course would be a good idea since freecodecamp covers pretty plenty of programming. (And I have programming knowledge before).
I can code in plenty of languages. However, I would like to build a project (Using Flutter for instance.).

That depends on which domain. Since you want to build projects on flutter and that is mobile development , I would suggest you go to codementor.io and look for mobile app development ideas and start building one by one and showcase it on twitter once you have done it.
