Most of the time, people ask: What would your dream job look like? Or, what is the ideal company you would like to work at?
One thing I rarely hear people asking is this:
Imagine an ideal world that you didn't have to worry about money, thus didn't have to work.
What would be the dream project you'd be working on?
As a developer, maybe there is this one side project that you always wanted to work on, but never got that far. What is that project, and why is it important to you?

I'll go first.
I think I'll be working on robotics and prosthesis. I think that people that are disabled should be able to live a normal life, without the basic things we do being a burden to them. In my ideal world, I would be creating prostheses that mimic human behavior as much as possible, which will give them the feeling that it's just their own body parts.
(Oh and I like Ironman, so I'll be building myself an exo-suit)😅
That sounds pretty awesome actually! 🤔
Well, I don't know what side project I'd want to work on. I guess I'm too much of a thinker. 😅
But if I didn't have to worry about money, I'd probably be travelling, learning everything I can, blogging my heart out and volunteering. 😊
That's alright too. We need thinkers to help innovate the world.😉
Hahaha, you are already blessing us with your posts. I wonder what content we would get if you could blog to your heart's content.
What type of volunteering projects are you interested in?
I think so too! 😁
Oh, stop it! 🙈
Hmm, I'd say anything that helps alleviate poverty and that positively impacts people's lives. It's vague, I know. But I've always wanted to improve the quality of life of others through tech. I also happen to care about the environment, so volunteering in that area, is up my alley too.
Good stuff! I hope that one day you get to volunteer as much as you'd like!
My dream side project (that I'm constantly working on) is developing and sharing my library of esoteric stuff. I love implementing obscure algorithms, goofing around with inefficient languages and counting in weird numbering systems, and want to spread the fun of esolangs (and other niche topics) with the world. That's how I ended up on dev.to: it was recommended as a place to set up a blog on useless CS-related stuff.
It's not a big dream, but it's a fun one and I don't want much from life.
That's it! As long as you find joy in it, it's a dream worth working on!
Just did a quick search about esolangs, and the concept looks interesting. Looking forward to seeing more from you! Welcome to the platform✌
