Say you want to make a fun (and useful) programming project. How do you get ideas?

I struggle

    The problem is, most of the times "fun" and "useful" don't go together very well.

    A project should be addressing a problem that needs a solution, be it original, or improving on an existing solution.

    Fun (and useful) are subjective... Damn, I spent three days once writing and tweaking a 2d particle system... For a game? Nope. As an open source particle library? Nope... I wanted the pretty colors to dance! They looked so purty!

    decide fun for who? dev or user
    useful? that's easy. everything has their useful moment maybe for a short period but they do.

    @matsaki95 I can agree with you but finding a problem that I can actually solve is the hard part
