Nice post. I'd like to add my 2 cents:
If you have a dream job that you'd like, or maybe a target company, try creating projects aligned with the industry or end-user.
If you want to work at Spotify, why not trying to create a streaming app? etc.

Also for us, would be great if you could write some requirements, it help us building our β€œproblem solving” skill. You could do something like:


  • users can login
  • users can register
  • they should upload file
  • they could list it in a category
  • they coukd get likes and comments

Something like that so we can start improving our problem solving skill! This thing, I think that will help many beginners.

Thank you so much!

Very good project ideas! I just started university and from my personal experience, I have a lot of experience using JS so I want to start building my portfolio again(I was moving my repositories from public to private for making better and good projects) so I’ve been struggling with ideas for some time.

Thank you so much for ideas!
