Search - "project idea?"
During a random school project.
Me: *Explains why team members idea is bad*
Team member: *Im going to do it like this anyways.*
Me: *add explaination of why idea is bad to git commit log.*
1 week later: some parts of the project dont work like they are suppost to.
Team member: *dude can you help me bla bla....(encounters issue i mentioned regarding his idea)*
Me: *no, i've already got too much on my plate. please, sort it out yourself....*
At the presentation
Teacher: *ask question about problem*
Team member: *tries to blame the problem on me....*
Me: *shows git commit log to teacher*
Me: *passing grade*
Team member: *failing grade*
How it usually goes:
1. Have an idea
2. Do about 3 of those things:
- sketch out a few diagramms of how it would work
- think of a name and buy the url
- estimate what you would have to buy and what it would cost
- make a project folder
- lean back, imagine life after the idea made you rich and famous
- write about 2% of the required code
3. Get distracted or don't have time to work on thr idea
4. Have new idea, repeat from 122
"You can teach my son to code. He doesn't like typing so just use that mouse thing (track pad). He's got an idea for an app (Flappy Birds clone) that'll make millions. It needs to be done tomorrow for his school computer project."
I have been working on a project I call Pipelines. The idea behind the project is that it will be a centralized dashboard for you to receive Webhooks on.27
Me: Discovered a bug during testing, but I have no idea what's causing it yet.
Project manager: Can you give me an ETA on when the fix will be done?
Me: <eye twitches>5
Finally i had an idea for a personal project.
I sat down, started sketching up the classes i'd use.
3 hours later, im finished.
Now i have no personal prjects running and im bored again.11
'hey guys i have a cool idea for a project'
"yeah thats a neat idea lets do it"
we get drunk on the first meeting and completely forget about the project5
"The client has no idea what they want, just throw your best guess out there and let's see what they say" -- best project manager in the world2
Manager: We really need to save money with this project, so nobody call tech support for anything.
Me: There's this open-source solution that would work great.
Manager: Bad idea! There's no tech support number to call.
My teacher told me not to do a project. He said it was much too hard.
I did it.
2 months pass
And then i come to him with anothec project idea.
Same thing goes, nobody believes in me, but i still succeed.
in the aftermath, i was able to create an interpreter AND a compiler in about 1 year... 😁23
I just had a major breakthrough on a project 😊
Just standing there chatting with my dad (also a dev), while preparing for the new years feast, and got this amazing idea that I just had to try. 30 minutes later I'm done with the script and it works flawlessly 😊😅5
Starting a new project
Me: This time we'll follow all the best practices, do atomic commits and write meaningful commit messages.
Coworker: Yeah! Let's start.
40 commits later.
Me: Why is .idea folder in the repository?
Coworker: Sorry My Bad.
Working on a project called ...fire... on linux, when suddenly realised, that
`$ touch fire` is a bad idea5
You've got to love Android development.. :D Just grabbed my laptop to start working on an idea I just had. Launched Android Studio to do some quick coding..
Update for the repo's..
Update for the IDE itself..
Update for gradle..
Started project. Need to update my build tools..
I.. I.. I just wanted to do some quick coding :D
*edit* Just tried to run the project.. "Acceleration driver is out of date, please update Haxm" .. Damnit..7
Writing some C in the middle of the night for some random project idea I thought of while eating Pizza is the most fun I've had this year. :)
Think of an idea that can really benefit others.
Start working on the project and come up with a working prototype.
Complete the project 98%
Get bored of the project.
Move on to another project.5
I really like my little group for this one huge exam project we have. Everyone's nice, ambitious, takes the project seriously, responsible and communicates well. Additional bonus is we're all on the same skill level so everyone's learning and nobody is dragging a huge load alone. We've had no issues so far and despite being fairly early in the project we're making good progress all around. Is this what a stress-free experience feels like? Pretty happy with the project in general and I think our app idea is pretty cool too.23
Finally thought I had a good project idea.
It's already been done and is a large site. 200k users.
WHY CAN'T I JUST COME UP WITH SOMETHING UNIQUE FOR ONCE?16
My boss has no idea what he is doing. Scary for a senior programmer, with 20 years of experience. The guy keeps calling methods statically, in a object oriented project. And can't understand why it won't work.4
When project manager is talking about things that I have no idea but I just keep saying "Yes, I can do it"1
Would it be a bad idea if I mention my biggest project is a Discord bot supplying explicit material to a total of 7000 servers on my CV?
When you're in a meeting with the director of the company about a project you're working on and the only thing that comes out of the meeting is 20 new features which you have no idea if you'll be able to do them but said yes anyway.1
1. Comes up with a project idea.
2. Doesn't have enough friends who code to collaborate said idea with.
3. Abadons project.
All in that order. lol
I just want to build cool stuff. :(10
Was a co-lead on the first project to add image recognition to ATMs for depositing checks. Turns out, it was a pretty OK idea and people liked it.3
I tend to respect project managers who came from production (ie. who can code, design, or produce something tangible), vs. "professional" managers who have no idea how the work is actually done.
Sadly I didn't encounter many.5
Boss just phoned me and told me of his great app idea. Says he wants the idea done and implemented by tomorrow 8AM. Meaning I have 8 hours to plan a project, design the app, and implement it.
Well, I'm boned.11
When you have literally no idea how to make your homework project so you try to Google/StackOverflow it piece by piece to make a Frankenstein's monster code.
And then you still have no idea how to cobble it all together in a way that makes sense.4
1. have an exciting app idea
2. create project folder
3. include WebPack
47. lose all passion for project and give up
That moment when you get a great idea for a side project, and you know you don't have the needed skills yet, but you don't care 'cause it just means you're gonna have to learn more... just awesome 😍3
I think im sick. Not because my whole body hurts, my nose is running and i cant even move, but because i just had the idea that i should unit test my personal project.4
Every Group Project in CS Major
Group 1:- Hey group 2 what project are you making ..?
Group 2:- Can't tell , Top Secret
Group 1:- Railway Ticket Booking System
Group 2:-Railway Ticket Authorization System
Evaluators :- I think I saw similar idea somewhere....😂3
Software engineering project discussion:
Boy: Sir, my project is a client to manage files stored on different cloud file storage systems at one place
Faculty: Boring idea. Very easy to implement, No scope of scalability, etc
Girl: My project is an app to display the weather information
Faculty: Omg! What an innovative idea! I'm surprised how no one though of this before!11
When you have a "GREAT" idea, start to work on it and after 2 hours you have forgot why you have started the project.
Me right now 😖
Sorry for my bad english 😓3
"Ah no, reusable frameworks and libraries are a terrible idea. What you need is a bunch of very lightweight files that you can copy / paste from project to project"

Who in their right mind though it would be a good idea to move the web development team to a new office without checking that the internet is connected.
What a waste of three working days.
And of course the project needs to be delivered by Sunday...3
When your boss gives her boss an update on your project that isn't true, and makes you look incompetent, just because she had no idea. Fucking muppet.1
2)Look for the most suitable tech
3)Draw out all the functionality
4)Break into milestones
6) git commit
10) Feel like a King7
working on this personal project for a year with some progress every week..
I got this new Idea for this new project!4
Wanted to share a project with you, which I heard about at a Python Conference I attended.
It's a Raspberry based Hacking Station to educate and sensitize students about data privacy. The amazing thing about the project is, that it is a graduation project from a high school student.
If you're interested, check out spypi.ch
This is not an ad or something, I was just amazed by the talk and the idea of the project and wanted to share it with you.2
Had the great idea to look through all the TODOS in a project, only to find this masterpiece of comment. 👏🏻2
Client have this amazing idea about a website that they wanted to convert into reality by using our service. Me and my friend started working on it.
After a month later when it's almost ready, they informed they are not investing into the idea anymore. They would like to discard the project and will pay half of it.
I am eventually realising why signing a contract is really important4
Have you ever been in a situation where you want to start a new project, but have no idea what it should be.3
If you ever get an idea for an OpenCV project: shoot yourself in the foot, drink some bleach, do whatever it takes to get it out of your head, because it will all be less painful than the python docs for cv2.3
*starts to work on a new project while others remain unfinished*
*bulb lights up* oh look a new project idea
*goes on to start on that one instead*
Being a student developer is awkward.3
That moment when you have an idea for a project and you spend all your time on setting up the environment, then your realize it is a stupid idea.
What I hate most about myself is getting a great idea for a project, getting started on it, becoming distracted by other things, forgetting about the project, and having no idea what was going on when I come back to it months later.2
1) Heck yeah, great idea
2) Sit like 60 minutes there thinking about a name for the project
3) Build the basics
4) ..meh fuck it3
when you have a great idea for a project, the you open android studio and like ''ok, how the hell do i even start? i'm going to sleep''4
Just bought this bad boy. I'm planing to run a virtual test lab. Needs some hard drives though. Any project idea are welcome.5
Client doesn't have any idea what pages/links they want for their website. Same client told me to call the guy who recommended me to him for the project brief...wtf...I mean WTF!!!5
I have a lab at uni where my lab group have to refactor some code from an open source project. We got assigned some Apache project and jfc that code is a mess. Little to no documentation, hard to navigate, tests that you have no idea what it's testing, and so on. On top of that the teacher expects us to spend more time than we have on it. I'll be glad when this course is over :))5
Have an idea for a fun little side project coding a game. Install Unity and read up some samples.
Remember I'm awful at any kind of creative design work.
Get sad and go back to Overwatch.5
I'm four months in my new job and I've done 5 days worth of coding. There aren't much projects coming to our office nowadays so I'm being paid just to log my hours.
Any of the ranters here have any small project ideas I can make to pass the time?
I've literally run out of things to make.18
Once upon a time, an IT major named adamyeti thought it was a good idea to work on projects directly off of a flash drive with no backup. Halfway through a large ASP.NET project, the drive failed. I fumbled through a free drive recovery tool, but all of the data was scrambled and corrupted.
I ended up having to start from scratch on the project, but I learned my lesson for sure.1
Create the project of your billionaire app idea -> spend 1 week working on it -> realize that actually sucks -> repeat5
Senior group project in college.
When you decide to meet up and one member doesn't show up at first meeting.
So I sent an email about the research I did on the feasibility of the project and how to implement a core requirement. 2 days later & no response yet..
Why do I think I'm gonna be the one the pull off the application by myself & then have to put name of people who have no idea how I got it to work..8
It's nice when a great new idea you have is fairly easy to implement and works well.
My latest idea involves running my discord bot, written in nodejs off of my phone using a terminal app (that doesn't require rooting my phone).
Once I got a branch of the project with no voice support, I wrote a bash script in vim on my phone (an odd experience, I assure you) and ran it.
Things have been working well, far better than trying to use PhoneGap to build something that would run it.
All in all, I'm pretty satisfied, and it was a fun and relatively painless project! (thankfully)10
aaah, memories. When I discovered github while doing my school project. Even my lecturer had no idea about, he thought I made it as part of my project 😂 Project was an Ionic app connected to Arduino for home automation. straight As I got... straight As.
Fun Story: My first official project was related to system files security. In first meeting project manager was talking about Macros and OLE i had no idea what the heck he was saying.just kept noding
Took us 2 months to complete the project now it has been deployed and working perfectly
Told my manager about this during final one on one meeting and he couldnt believe me,he still laughs about it everytime we meet
TIL you can make the smallest implementation of Debian:
Use only busybox and APT
Remove sysd and use busybox init
Holy fucking shit, let's make this an actual distro and call it debsmol5
Oh man don't you just LOVE the weekend? I have no fucking idea but I have so much energy and motivation now... I might even try to pull a all nighter on my personal project !
Anyway have a nice weekend everyone! 😁3
Step 1. Have no dissertation project.
Step 2. Wait for the last 3 hours till the deadline to come up with an idea.
Step 3. Realise that your just-thought-up project idea is something companies like Google and Amazon are still trying to figure out. But there is no time left.
Step 4: Approach your supervisor with the words "Imagine the possibilities". They respond with "Imagine the difficulty".
Step 5: They sign on it regardless since they are curious to see you fuck up with style, also you are too much in love with your idea already, and refuse to drop it.
Step 6: fml4
I was bored at my workplace and thought to put curl code to GET a random dad joke on opening terminal everytime
Fuck, now I'm having a migraine
but i have an idea to expand this project even more4
ughh, studying about various software project management methodologies and lifecycles is so boring.
every different model looks similar, saying :
you got an idea?
- check weather its needed and if its practically / financially possible
- get investment and resources,
- design,develop, test, release
- repeat .
why name them waterfall or spiral or rad or agile or shit?
and we know how project go in reality: "fuck its 2 days to release and 5 features left? push to prod, make breaking features, leave the tests and release"7
When your co-worker, that btw has no idea wtf he's talking about, comes with his opinion that you happen to hate, on a project you have worked on for months.
Me and my project partner were explaining a idea for a smart mirror in front of two of our teachers (female) for our major project of final year.
After telling all the features and things it will do for 15 minutes, one of them very seriously said that,
"so basically you are making a smart mobile app".
We both died a little inside that day... 💀
Me: actually trying to finish a project for once (I’m REALLY close)
People that bitch I never finish one: You should make [Enter this idea], or why don’t you just take a break from that and work on another or this one4
[Hardware geeks, microcontroller geeks, please come]
Yet another Hacktoberfest tshirt...
Gotcha? (I bet you know who I am)
Just kidding. Just a random project idea I am not sure if it is possible to make from scratch.
It is essentially a usb external storage
And has a lcd that shows available storage space
And some buttons to play snake. (Yup)
Is it possible?
What should I expect when creating from scratch? (Microcontroller, c language, interfaces, etc)20
Well, this goes back a few years to when I first started to program in Minecraft. I had an idea of developing Gun Game in Minecraft before any of these big servers had created them, so I had a few questions and asked it on Bukkit forums. So he responded to my questions and seemed interested in the idea, so one day we got to talking on Skype and were working on the project. After that project, we worked on hundreds of smaller projects and even started our own hosting company (Which was sold off now, due to us being in school). So I went from not having any programming friends to having one, just cause of a Minecraft plugin idea.1
// PSA //
Please everybody, go to your Project/Product Manager, Product Owner or whoever thinks it is a good idea to sacrify the usability and speed of the software/product for sake of faster updates, solutions that are easier/simpler to develop and implement, or new features not even the users itself could think of. Thanks.2
Anyone here has an idea of a project to do in Java and Spring (REST stuff) ?
I'm out of ideas :/ and I really want something to build in Java and keep me busy for a while.7
My first project is finished xd. i was in designing but merging it with coding was a great idea. It has got a serial system amd an auto updater. Yep it is a cheat injector xD rate for a guy who just started coding.6
Me: finally got some free time. Now I can work on that side project.
Life: hmmm. That's a good idea but how about we have Typhoid and stay on the bed with a high fever that you cant move.1
....You work as a project manager in your day job don't you?1
TL;DR: I'm stressed out over choosing a side project because of the commitment and fear of failure :(
I'm a student and summer vacation starts in 3 days (and actually has already started for me, thanks to a "smartly planned" hospital stay), so I'm currently looking for a cool project to start. This will be my third summer vacation during which I want to make complete a project, and I never actually did it. The first year, I couldn't think of any reasonable, doable project which would be interesting and fitting for the time scope (I was quite new to programming back then, so I probably couldn't have done things that would be interesting to me, an any project that I could've done would just take 20 minutes, cause I wouldn't understand anything more complex). The second time, I chose a project too big with too much new things I had to learn on the go. I actually pushed through for nearly a week, but then I realized that I only completed like 25% in that time, so I lost my motivation, thinking I could never finish it, while not wanting to start a complete new project, because that would've felt like wasting the time I put into my first project. It was still a valuable project and I learned a lot by doing it, but this year I want to actually finish a project; so I'm really stressed out right now trying to come up with a good project.
Usually I have millions of vague ideas in my head, but as soon as it comes to choosing, every single one seems to be the wrong one, or I forget about all of them. Everything that kinda interests me seems way to big and complicated to me, but I sometimes feel like I'm just underestimating my abilities, but on the other hand I have ~25 projects on my hard drive, of which 4 or 5 are finished and most will never be finished. :/
And it's just so overwhelming to choose something like that, because on one hand I really want to do a bigger project that I actually finish, and summer vacation is the only time I have so much time to code, and I love coding, but on the other hand choosing such a project that I will work 2-3 weeks on is too much commitment and also I'm anxious about failing it and never finish it, just abandon a buggy mess. Am I the only one to feel that way, or are you too having problems choosing side problems?
And, I guess if you have any ideas for a suitable project (literally anything, so that I might be exposed to some new ideas), just comment it.14
Today's first day at my internship has been wasted by IntelliJ IDEA not importing a project properly.
On the bright side, other devs told me that it took them three days in order for all configuration to be set up.
Man, this sure feels unproductive.4
So I came up with an interesting idea for a quick side project. "Should be doable in an afternoon," I thought to myself.
Then I sat myself down and started diagramming all the components and sections I'd need to build. Suddenly, simple project no longer seems so simple.
...dammit, not again.1
The three of us were all doing Java project for class. Within 5 minutes, we all merged our branches up to the integration branch, and everything broke.
Longest 2 hours of yelling ever. We took out all of the stops: git blames, reverting commits, the whole nine.
Turns out that someone accidentally pushed their .idea folder, which messed up everyone's system.2
1. Get an idea
2. Plan the structure to use overengineered solutions
3. $ git init
4. Setup the barebones
5. $ git commit -am "initial commit"
6. Forget the project for the next several months, until another idea pops out and you visit your github to setup a repo for the new project and rediscovers this miserable project's repo
7. Back to 1, repeat
A Google app that would let you tag good skating locations on Google maps. The idea itself wasn't stupid, there was just already a more generalized app that did a damn good job of it already. (That's how I figured out that most "like (blank) but for (blank)" project ideas are dumb)3
My latest project is overhauling a WP site my company outsourced to a local "development" company. Why is development in quotes you may ask? Because their idea of development is about 30 plugins and minor changes to a theme. The only saving grace here is that they used a child theme.3
I have that idea about starting a non dev project, but use some dev skills.
I'm thinking about raising shrimps 🦐 to distribute (maybe at first just for testing). I can use raspberry pi with some sensors (Oxygen and food etc...) to semi-automate the raising process5
The feeling I had when my final year project idea hit me.
I am so excited and relieved.
It's hard to come up with project ideas this days, really!!!
So I started to write a small script that my boss asked me to do.
I thought I will be able to do the job simple in just one file.
after 5 days, mostly researching and writing like 10 important functions I gave up the idea of being easy and I configured it as a project.
Feels so smooth now.1
You're asked if you know how to use git, you say you can but you can't.
You decide to change your entire codebase because you realized your previous approach was a bad idea.
You ask how to change the old repository-content for the new project, you receive answer but you can't get it to work, you don't ask again for help.
What's the logical consequence? Create a public GitHub-Project and dump the entire customer-project under NDA into it -.-*
Reinvent the wheel but be prepared to let that little project aside.
Follow a lot of people (twitter, rss, slack, etc) but do not jesusify anyone.
Listen to podcasts but remember most of them are advertising.
Read technical papers but don't take every idea as brilliant.
When your boss-slash-designer-slash-idea-guy puts in one 'tiny' requirement that puts a bottleneck on the entire project. . . and there's only one guy working on it.
Well, excuse me, this shit is not going to take a day to fucking implement. Let me just mark this task with a 2 week finish date. Someone pls save me.
In my study program the is this last big course everyone is looking forward to because it combines everything we've learned so far. It's a group project where you build a middle-scale-ish application using ask kind of project management like scrum & co.
We had a good idea and am enthusiastic team.
Well, long story short: our assigned teacher was just bad. He barely listened to our proposal, had no fucking idea who we were at the second meeting and he FUCKING FELL ASLEEP in the last meeting. No feedback. No comments on our progress. Nothing. We could've work with the cleaning lady, she probably would've more feedback for us!
If you are going to tell me you develop using TDD, it's a good idea to actually have tests in your test project.
When you start a project with random people and they have no idea how GitHub works, but still push new idiotic changes that make the app become slower and slowerevery hour it feels bad.
But when you ask them wtf are they doing and they answer 'Sorry, I don't understand you' it is an overkill. Wth?!1
Can a sysadmin start Node web design?
I'm a Linux automation admin, and I always look at my friends developing nodes websites with poor UI and UX. I'd love to fix that but have no idea where to start from.
Any idea or git project / advice on where to start from?
My current project: PHP microframework that makes building REST API kinda 'easy'
But I've read some articles online that building APIs using PHP is a really bad idea. I guess I just wasted my time. Lol. I hate myself.6
Just got intern to “help me” on project. Told him to install nodeJs and run ‘npm install’ inside project folder that he pulled from git.
He ended up running ‘npm install’ inside C:\Program Files (x86)\nodejs
Don’t have slightest clue how he got this idea, ... I just wanted to smash my head through window by that point. Similar shit repeated whole day long.7
I'm really bad at personal project idea generation.
So, do you have any good Python project ideas?
PS. Wanna light up my github chart again.
(aaand to put it in my CV of course)4
Project idea: make a fucking neural network visualizer, that gets my fucking model and gives me a proper fancy fucking visualisation in jpeg. 😐
I'm angry cuz I have to make that shit manually rn, and shit ain't playing nice.6
Presented a project in college for a competition this guy kept asking questions about it.
Now about one week later he's published a website with the exact same idea2
How to get funding for your startup in India?
Just sprinkle a little bit of blockchain on your project idea. Done 😂😂
Does anybody has an idea what to "code" when you have too much free time? I am done with school and waiting for my university acceptance. No Websites.
I'd love to start a pet project, but my brain refuses to come up with an idea. 😑
At least I'm used to it, seems like my creativity is not existent.14
I love when a project puts a dependency on infrastructure that has not been implemented internally and have no idea if it will work. *sarcastic voice*1
Starting a new side project, that I believe and my close friends believe will take off, want someone to bounce ideas off of, sadly I'm afraid someone will steal the idea :(10
Go ahead and start programming says boss, we're 95% this project is happening. It's for sure...
3 months later it's cancelled and customer had no idea we were working on it.
- finish that ML course I started back in June 2017
- get more experience from my job
- improve my code quality even better.
- build some cool project in Java ( there's this company I need to impress, but I haven't found any good idea to implemen 😣)
- be more active on Hackerrank
- do some stuff here and there
- use that freaking LinkedIn to create some meaningful connections
- contribute to an open source project
... yeah that's a lot ... *sigh*7
Want to start a open source project, but don't know what to start with. Specially don't know how to involve people or share the idea. Any help?4
Simple ANTLR project for compiler class accepted .
(btw I had no idea about what antlr was , so i googled everything :D)
You know when you have a project and everything is fine. Then everything turns into this big mess that you have no idea what does. And then you don't even know how to continue on the project so you decide to just start from scratch after working on it for a year?
Well that happened today.4
My least successful project was:
social network for student exchange. I did it for the student organization that after launch decided that they really don't need that and shut it down.
Idea was for students to subscribe to internships of their interest (for example 'developer internship') and then they get notifications when someone from the network publish internship within subscribed interests.4
Okay. I don't get quiet the idea why Project Manager doesn't want to enhance or revise the current format to proper format clinical prescription. I deeply understand that we have lots of bug fixes and enhancements to do. But, you know, one suggestion of a client can make a difference literally, compared to the previous one and can benefit to all.5
A colleague of mine had a 'great idea' and started a crowdfunding project on kickstarter;
A microblogging application to host on your own server. The max amount of characters per message was 140.
The prototype was even built on bootstrap!
Such a original idea!!4
Currently working on a new project with a group of people, (about 8 guys, no ladies 😒).
Anyways, out of the eight, there are only 3 devs, 3 designers and 2 main idea guys. I'm a member of all 3 sets and to top it of, the other designers don't know what they are doing.
Life is beautiful, fucking beautiful.2
PM: "I have an easy question for you."
me: "Well let me decide if it's easy."
PM: "Where do the images for X in project Y come from?"
me: "Good question. No idea. I will come back to you."1
Welcome to our development process! Where we come up with a project idea when we have two upcoming projects, have a late night writing an 16 page design document, to later cancel the project two months later.4
Every person project cycle.
1.thinking 2.making bitbucket private repo 3.Making slack channel for contributors.4 Explaining the idea 5.the end.
I seriously need to work after step 5
Not just dev goals.
-Stable relationship with [Redacted]
-Finish my projects
-Get new SSD
-Finally get paid for the DLR project
-Not fucking up my exams
-Finish my blacksmithing idea/project
-Play a good game that's not Destiny2
-Think positively for once4
Probably would have been a good idea for someone to tell me that if I upload the project to my tenant too many times it can break the entire realm and bring down all the other tenants in it. Good opportunity for some team documentation 😊
My old boss who somehow has gotten his small team of 4 PHP development contracts with Vodafone and Tesco etc. No QA, no tests, no frameworks allowed.
Sets random deadlines and used to suddenly drop demos on me for projects I'd just started and he had no idea of the state of them. Needless to say one project I was so rushed with no idea what I was actually making (for real) that I got sacked.
So I was glad that I finally completed the project for my bachelor's degree after fixing random bugs.
Here came this shocking news which left me stunned.
Some other batch bought a similar project from a project centre(lifeline for noobs to pass university project by buying projects made by someone else).
Head of the Department sent me a message that the project done by my team(95%me) is rejected as the other batch also has a similar project. He's aware that they bought it from a project centre. He's defending them that their money would go in vain as they bought it already.
I was like WTF!! Srsly? Do you even know what it takes to make a project functional? I've no idea what I'm going to do now.
I've always thought that in order to become a project manager it was necessary a period as programmer (as it was a sort of promotion).
But according to what I read here it seems like a lot of pm have no idea how to/how long it takes to develop software... Am I wrong or what?5
The most fun I have while programming is when I work on something that I enjoy. Even if it won't be a huge project in the end, working on an interesting idea is always the most fun I can have.
I am sure most people can relate, too.
Hey guys! Finally decided to jump on board! This is my first rant so go easy.
Working on a project were some freedom of choice is allowed and thinking about using polymer to create a wordpress theme... Is this a good idea or a terrible one?
Today during lunch in office, me with my colleagues were discussing a funny start up idea. Made lot of gags and finally dispersed, remarking "it was fun".
Update: Buisness Plan is partially ready and new Android Studio project started. 😂😂
Me: *creates new Vue.js project in IntelliJ IDEA*
Also me: *waits for 2 hours*
PS: Also could someone please comment with Vue Land Discord invite link/code that's not expired?3
Team lead has no idea whats going in project , who is doing what work , nothing at all. Come to our team once a week and got award for successfully managing the project.
When one PM hands you off to another PM and neither has any idea about the project I am supposed to be working on...nor do I have access to the Trello boards, the repos, etc...
Happy Monday 🤦♂️
Writing something akin to JavaFX or WPF to use with Rust.
A fairly easy to use XML-oriented system for writing run of the mill GUI apps for the desktop
Me - Ooo I've got this idea ! This will fix this "No ones" problem in programming.
(Thinking this will change the programming for everyone)
Few minutes later ...Searching stackoverflow for silly syntax errors.
...Finds a 2 years old project from some guy, who already finished working on the idea and answering question as "This is a bullshit idea!, Never try to make something like this."
Me - (Suffering from existential crisis)2
The project with the worst documentation is always my own. I always come back to a project and have no idea what anything does.1
I must admit sometimes agile methodology zealots annoy me but I just quit a shop with no process, no source code repository, and no testing. I worked there a month and had no idea such places still exist. I knew it was a bad idea but I needed remote work. I tried to evangelize to them but they blamed me for everything after they fired the project manager.6
I shot myself in the foot again!!
These incident usually happen at restless night.
Some night I become too restless so I do what any programmer would do, I program.
The "novel" idea just come up and I code until I become too tired. I usually finish the prototype of the project before I fell asleep.
I usually found out that I have reinvent the wheel the next morning! Great. My "novel" idea is not too "novel" after all.
It is hard to find the novel project these day since it is too hard to beat the decade of collective intelligence of programmer.8
An app that gives you just the code segments you need for doing certain programmatic tasks, given keywords, or a simple sentence of what you're trying to do.1
Peoples opinion of ASP?
Any hints for learning/using/I got assigned a big project and have no idea what I'm doing?
Our teacher has assigned us a project that should be well documented, well built, written in a language that he has no freaking idea how it works and the project should be Facebook rich with features, we are three members in a team and the project should be done in less than two months. How the hell should we deal with this freak?5
Gahhhh!!!! I just finished a project that let every kid in my school have a perfect class scheduler, gradebook, etc., in java. Now I have no idea what to do. I want to do something in java because I want to have a very strong base in the language. Do you guys have any ideas?4
Hey Guys. I need to do a Project in School. Ist can last about 3-5 Months but I have no fking idea what to do.. You Guys have some good ideas? Best would be in Web Technologiea5
If im working on 1 private project and another idea (that could be even better than the one im working on) comes into my mind, am i supposed to stick and finish this current project or work on both projects in parallel?3
I am going to do a project which indexes lecture/educational videos for easier navigation. Planning to use PyTorch for this. Any suggestions or do you know any open source projects that exists ?
If you also interested then this is the repo -
I was thinking about how youtube stands as the most used platform for videos, however the more creative/professional oriented platform Vimeo could still establish itself few years later. Same for Facebook and LinkedIn for instance.
So I was wondering how much new ideas could come out following the same reasoning. Any ideas?10
Lesson 1 of developing a project with managers: never make it known that solutions to some bugs are simple. Managers will assume that all bugs are simple and require little thought and effort. Then, when there is a bug for which you have no idea what the solution is just by looking at the issue, they will become upset.1
Just found out that my project bought intellij idea's licenses just for two of the laziest devs while the rest of us are stuck with open source ides6
How I approach the project: got an idea run at super speed thinks something important on my way there and return with the same speed. 🤔🤔🤔😐
Anyone here had any success with any kind of tech based side project? Been mulling over the idea for a while.1
I hate when you finish a project, and have no idea what to work on next! I despise feeling so idle!4
I'm about to ask a really, lets just say challenging, question.
I'm well aware that PHP is server side and JS is client side. Don't worry, i'm not as dumb as I look, but I've taken interest in the formerly known as phpjs.org project now known as Locutus. (Love their name and idea.)
My question is whether anyone has used any little bit of that project, and if so, can you use it for something like Wordpress or Joomla to have a purely serverless and dynamic website? I know. I know. Dumb. I'm just curious because the idea intrigues me more than anything to have something like that.4
That big moment of relief: had a project idea I was way too excited about, that involved a bunch of things I have no idea how to do. I don't have any spare time to do the project, but I wanted to do it so bad. Turns out there already is quite a good version of what I wanted to do. Now I don't have to worry about when and how to do it.
For the curious ones: I wanted to use an AI to detect grains and scratches on old images and have it automatically assume from the areas next to it what color they should be filled in with.
I bit off more than I could chew with this project... Of course, it's my own fault since it's MY idea. Why would I do this???15
When you talk to a friend about a possible cool project, and you find out Google already did it... Is there something they haven't done??1
I was looking at the code from my first project after i started working. It was initially created by a consultant who in his own words "had no idea what he was doing". I found this wonderful comment. Its swedish but roughly translates to "This is completely wrong... Or maybe not" (It was) :D2
I want to do one project in which using arduino uno and RFID reader to take attendance but for this I have to need 100 reader card which is costly. So I thought using bar code so I can print barcode on paper and no need any card. So does anyone idea where I can get bar code module for arduino uno.4
I once was righting a C project for my professor, and I had a problem that I didn't know the solution, once I copied the script in the main into a function it worked perfectly.
And still have no idea of what happened.1
Hey everyone 🙂
I’m looking for a little input on a project I’ve had in my head for a while.
I want to make a schedule app that would cater to personal, work and school schedules alike, and give points or rewards for completing tasks on time. Like a reward kind of system.
What features would you most look for in a schedular / reminder app?6
Announcing to the group that the project is live, after publishing it is fun! It is like getting closure👀 from a project.
Although going live on a Friday is never a good idea. 😄1
heck yea, started my first real React Native project. It's called R8 I stole the idea from @n3xus because in lazy and have nothing else to do. If you wanna check out my progress or fix my anything I can't fucking do, go to my GitHub, retrax24.2
I'm looking for a hobby project during winter as I can not drive my motorbike during that time. Anyone has a good idea?
Maybe I could start with my old business plan idea, but I would for sure need people to help me.6
I was put on some old forgotten project this sprint... looks like someone injected a shitload of heroin right into their frontal lobe and though it was a good idea to write a framework. Fuck.
Prestashop Q&A website ... Who the hell thought it was a good idea to have COMPARATIVE bars not be aligned. This is literally UX 101.
Glad that's the last project i have to do on this platform for a while ...
Besides alt coins, has anyone of you worked on a blockchain project which has actually delivered any value? I mean, someone besides the investors must have bought the idea for it to count.1
Quick question, because I have no idea how to Google it. The "block coding" concept that scratch is built upon, does anyone know if it's copyrighted in any way?
Working on a project, where I'm thinking of implementing something like it.5
2 months into my final year project report and we had create full graded document on how we're going come up with the final project idea which had to signed off in the first week....
So we had this instead of spending time on the project report itself.
All long before we actually get to start developing it... Uni...
I feel like I have a creativity blackout.
I want to develop a self-toy project but I have no idea what to do.
I just spend my free time on web courses. I guess that's better than nothing.3
Coworker 1 starts project
Coworker 2 inherits same project
*repeat 3 more times*
Coworker n has no idea what this spaghetti code is and what it does since everyone has done quick fixes as per management requirements.
This is how the company where i work functions. And with all these projects going from one dev to the other i can tell you its a real shitshow and a lot if frustration 😤2
I'm just about done with this asp project and I feel like I've spent at least twice as long on JQuery as I have C#.
Who the fuck thought methods as string options was a good idea?1
Why is it I just had an amazing idea for this project 2 days AFTER IT WAS FINISHED?
Oh well, time for a rewrite!
I am still in college and will be going for a job next year. I want to learn Java with all the best practices associated with it. What I would like to do is do a large enough project that would enable me to learn industry standards and use the best practices(effective java etc) in actual code.
So I would ask the devrant community to give some project ideas that would use these practices extensively. I don't know if I am making myself clear here, but any help would be appreciated.9
just came to the conclusion that my current side-project is a bunch of crap...
now desperate finding a new app idea :/4
So I got a couple of weeks free now until school starts again. Trying to think of a project that I can work until then but the more I think the less ideas I get. Any suggestions on how to get inspiration and get the idea juices flowing?6
I have been trying to come up with some idea for an android app as a side project, but no luck. Can you guys suggest some things I can work on.16
So...I kinda started a huge project and it requires a pattern recognition for the users' schedules as the cherry on top.
I have no idea from where could I start learning this. I tried lots of stuff, I have basic knowledge of ai, but I need to get to the next level.
Anyone else get really bogged down in a project and just lose any direction? :-/
I know what I want to do and a rough idea to do it but, I just don't know where to go from this point, any tips on how to get out of it?
I'm looking for an idea of a project to do over the next few days, if anyone could give me a project idea that'd be great3
Getting hit by a new project idea.
A song stuck in the head, especially a single or couple of lines. 😫
"Let me Google it"
anyone know a proprietary software which doesn't have an open source alternative yet? I'm looking for a good project idea.16
A former coworker who is now also leaving the project that's being managed by a guy who'd make trump look like Einstein. Anyway...
Him: You know the idea of measure twice, cut once.
Him: Well we sitting with a pile of sawdust and no glue...2
I had this great fun idea and i started programming immediatly. Yes! i'm feeling great and this is going to be amazing!
But Oh! then i had this amazing and super fun idea! It's almost the same, although it requires me to make massive changes to the code... Ok, no problem, i can do this. It's my project and it's fun. This is going to be great!
But then... FUCK2
Question for you guys.
I have an Android app in which you can track when and how much you have worked, etc., especially aimed at (food) delivery drivers. I know those kind of apps already exist, it's a hobby project :). But I have no idea what to call it.
I need to make a mobile app for a project, do you have any idea?,or something interesting that you have ever wished in an app?8
When you are in the middle of a project, and get an idea how to solve an other project's problem..
I don't know if I should be happy to solve the first problem, or sad to cut my work on the current project.
I need an idea for a thesis project! It's so hard to come up with a project and research question that can be answered by that project! Our teachers have a list of projects but I don't find anything interesting and those that are I can't come up with a question too.8
After an idea has rolled into the production stage I become bored with it. I no longer want to maintain or even review git issues.
However when even the hint of a new project rolls in I start "pre-developing" in anticipation and excitement of a new project. Development and base design of a project is what keeps me going.
I've been for 1 month in my first job as dev and I have a demo on Wednesday about some stuff either I didn't do myself and nor have any idea of how it works. De demo is 6 mins with the full project tribe... from ppl over the globe... wish me shit.6
So my client wants us to build a Photoshop/Illustrator-like canvas, with features such as ability to drag and drop multiple elements, resize them, etc. The project is web-based.
Any idea how to implement that? Are there any existing libraries that I can use?4
I'm want to hear other Dev's opinions on this week's weekly group rant! Do you find that the "worst projects" are caused the most by:
A) Poor solution design and/or terrible-idea-to-start-with
B) Poor process and/or terrible project management
C) Working with terrible teammates/customers6
Working on personal app project..got a feature idea... work all night to develop the feature, at morning I realized that feature is useless in my app ..Fuck that moment
Working on a new project for my employer. Just like every project I've done for them, they ask for something incredibly specific, then look at me like I'm crazy when I build it. They ask for something completely different at every meeting, then ask if I can do it in two weeks.
Man, I have no idea what to do about these people.2
This is a simple responsive portfolio website template. You can use it and make it yours by changing things and colours to your style and liking! I made it with a lot of hard work, love and of course with code :) I'm not a professional coder, but I tried my best to make it look cool and yet still keep it simple.
Mistakes are proof that we are trying!
I learned so much while making this template, if you use it, please let me know. I would love to see how amazing people can make it! I hope you'll like it!
I have used:
- HTML5 for markup
- Pure CSS3 for styling
- Font Awesome for Icons
- Unsplash for Images
You can add more things to make it even cooler! The comments in the code will help you navigate through it. Have a nice day! :D
you can view the Github repo at https://github.com/achaljhawar/...1
I currently work on a project where every teammate is trying to write as complicated code as they can. I suppose the idea is that way the client could never understand the codebase and we'll be developing and maintaining forever. Now I have to develop a functionality for resizing and rotating SVGs and they probably expect me to write obfuscated code to.2
So excited about my project !
It's about securing file transfer within local network.
Clients are android devices and there is a linux system as a server which handles file and public key transfer between clients .
Any idea about making it cooler ?10
I would like to learning something about machine learning and create something with it. Byť i want it to be something usefull, jave your aby idea what should i try to do ?1
Working on my first big project. The business have no idea the fuck they want and are constantly removing/changing things.
I love it when you are initiated into a new project within 30 minutes which must be finished in 2 weeks and you have no idea of anything! In addition, there are customers who have further problems wich must also be solved immediately!
My co-workers are all already in the holidays and enjoy the sun!
I love my work...1
Explain why a feature or request is a shite idea to your manager but don't accept 'well that's what the client wants' as an answer. Insist the useless manager twat should earn his money and not ruin the project.
I've made a web page, which is divided in two parts which basically are the same thing but with different designs.
Can any of you please tell me which one should i remove from the project
I would like to thank in advance anyone who is willing to give me an idea !3
So i keep thinking why don't people make reminders of a goal they want to follow.I mean i use it all the time it helps me be more organised.
** Do remember i am a NOOB in web Dev and would like to get better**
++// Any suggestions are greatly appreciated //++
So i came up with a Web App where
" we enter something we want to set a goal based on and the time duration we want it to run it for."
What's the best part " reminder is displayed in terms of a calendar with some animation (where we click on the date to show that we have lived up to that goal for that day)"
The page would also have a counter like a clock which would tell the user who has logged in if or not they are Procrastinating or actually following their set goal.
Last year my boss decided to outsource a project I did the year before to another company.
Now he wants my opinion on why this company estimates 10h to do an upgrade on a API interface I did on that project.
Like I remember details on what I did two years ago. And like I have any idea how this company is rigged to handle the project.
I’m meeting an acquaintance who wants to discuss a web app idea they‘d like to have developed. I’ve always worked full-time and have no experience running a side gig, scoping a project or what questions to ask. I would appreciate any advice on how to approach this meeting and any resources that will help with scoping/pricing.4
Knowing that being asked to help the PM with his Client Project Status Report on a Friday evening means a) it's late, b) he has no idea what has happened since the last one and c) you'll be writing it all anyway.
Repeat each week for the rest of eternity
Being a developer is about signing up on things yu hve no idea how to do
It feels like taking a deep dive into the deep dark unknown
And reassure the client that you will complete the project and satisfy them5
If you're into compilers AND AI, check out Glow Compiler.
Explains the idea well, casual read, almost no math just clean code examples and lots of easy reading explaining the ideas and theory behind it.
You can find the project at https://github.com/pytorch/glow and and also https://ai.facebook.com/tools/glow/1
At a job ten years ago, I had a manager who thought it would be a good idea to lock us in a meeting room all day with a 45 page BRD reading it line by line and analyzing what each line means until everyone was on the same page.
Every time I do an agile project without a BRD I think of her.1
FFS THIS SHIT ALWAYS HAPPENS
i got a cool idea i wanted to start working on with some friends maybe open source project ... (i like to think my ideas are cool ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ) i do some research reading and i find something close or the exact same shit i was thinking about already in Kickstarter 😒😒😒😒4
I have yet another problem.
Whenever I think about starting a new project, I open console, make a directory, initialize the boilerplate things and then...
Stop. I can't move much further because I get another idea that could be branched off of that last idea. And then.. another one.
Infinite loop :/
Hopefully I will reach a stack overflow soon...1
I have a doubt. I work as a freelancer. I always randomly charge my clients. Because I have no idea about other freelancer's pricing or market price. Currently, I'm working on a website that is very similar to DropBox. The only difference between my project and DropBox is the frontend design. I am doing the only backend of that project with python(flask). How much should I charge?5
I am going to start a big project (6-10 weeks) in my computer science class and had an idea to create an application that allows the user to share their mouse and keyboard over several computers regardless of OS. I plan to do the project in C++ but have no experience creating applications with C++. Firstly, is this project possible in. NET Core? If not, could you point me to resources or give me some tips that would help me in my project. Thanks.7
Hello people, I need an idea to make an "innovative" project for my college. But I have no idea how to get this ... Maybe a system ... web application or some other.
Could you give me tips or thems, or an idea of what to do?
I would be grateful for anything :)8
Me: "I have a hobby project idea on how to provide a vendor-free solution to this... and the domain is also straightforward."
Me after one year: "man, finally it is in the MVP state... that escalated slowly..."
> Also, me who couldn't resist to create a hobby project for the sake of the previous hobby project...1
I have an idea to request an icon to FontAwesome project then I went to their github project and found this: https://github.com/FortAwesome/...
It's over a year, hope FA team apply the update
Okay, what's the stupidest idea for a project?
I'm talking projects that you'll do only to show off that you can! With disregarding the "why" part.
I'm talking the 'connecting to the coffee machine and making coffee through the ssh connection' project, or creating a vim plugin that orders pizza.
Just how crazy can we get?1
I trully need some personal project or something to start working on my own or in a small team... any idea what to do?
Hello, a question about Node project -
How to import node libraries only once and use them all over the project.
I have asked it on StackOverflow, link to it
If you guys have any idea for it, please, share!15
I have an idea for a fun little web game... A small little learning project.
So of course the first thing I do is write a CLI database change management tool.
Ok, so I have 47 60 minutes mini DV tapes that don't want to go to waste, does somebody have an idea for a project that I could use these tapes for?
EDIT: they are all in individual boxes, most of them are Sony, but some are Panasonic11
So my former dev decided it was good idea to write a native module for our react native project, so that every time we call our api... we have a pass through the RN bridge.
What the actual fuck 😀
I'm taking a beginners course on java. After I'm done I want to do a tiny project.
I want you guys to suggest what I should build as I have no idea where to begin. It's my first language so suggest easy projects please.7
Aside from DevRant, what resources are available to pitch an idea in the hopes of recruiting a few developers for a side-project?4
Hey guys, do you have any idea where i can host a NodeJS application for free? It's a school project and id like to have it hosted somewhere to access it more easily.5
I have a class on my college on which we can choose what to do as a final project the only requisite being that we need to do something we haven't covered in any class at the degree.
I want to be a Gameplay programmer and saw that many offers ask for Lua, then I think this is an opportunity to do something in Lua and learn the basics but I don't know what to do, any ideas of a simple project I can do in Lua or a framework that uses Lua that can teach me the basics of it?
Tl;Dr: Want to do a small project in Lua, have no idea what to do tho. Ideas?4
Anyone know any good sources on creating a multi seat system using Ubuntu (or some Linux). I want to have 4 people using 4 monitors, keyboards, and mice. On 1 computer. It’s for a project idea9
After several brutal company failures to build yet another "Groupon Clone" internally back when Groupon was cool, it was pitched as an idea to bolt a clone onto the successful site.
Legal ramifications aside, I am still utterly amazed that project got shut down in a culture of yes-men.
Not having ever completed a project, except for a really simple app my school asked me to do. It's like I start to make something, anything, but then I lose interest in it pretty quickly. I guess it's because I can't come up with an idea of something that I think would be really useful/fun.
Why every time I come up with a nice idea for an electrical engineering project it turns out to be far more complex than I could imagine and impossible with my skill level. I have done hours of research and feel like I may as well not bother.1
when someone suggest you a project idea out of their genius mind,
and the story is either it's impossible or there are tons of implementations.
you'll be like " you are so naive, you don't know anything", but you can't say that because you wanna make friends.
Knew it was a bad idea to work on my project over the break, and I am stuck for a day and have to spend the new year celebration being stuck.
Next project idea self hosted home webserver powered by steam engine:
Hi guys !
Is it a good idea?9
When you need to present a new idea of a software to stakeholders, you let them decide the duration of the presentation or you decide? I'm facing a very fucked public saturday but it's an important project2
Telling my non-coding friends I'm working on a cool personal project that I'm really passionate about:
Friend "Oh yeah sounds good.. That's, eh, nice, (Tension is building) ..LISTEN I HAVE THIS IDEA, maybe we can work something out? (Looking at me like they have invented the light bulb)
The best way to learn is to clone it, install it and get stuck in. Read the documentation, see the example code, then get an idea for a project and start building with it.
I'm needing an idea for a new project. I began tinkering with one of my old C# projects and I'm just **disgusted** with the amount of crap in there.
What do you guys think, should I finish it or move on?
Any good ideas on how to find another idea for a new project?3
Hate working in a team when one senior guy comes in with no idea about the project, but still has to share 'ideas and suggestions' irrelevant to the workflow. Such a busybody!1
Is there anywhere that you can get your open source code brutally reviewed?
As the (almost) sole developer on a project (and only just entering the world of professional software development), I have no idea if the stuff I've written is good, bad, or just plain disgusting, and obviously the only way to improve is to be aware of the mistakes you made3
Any suggestions for good reading regarding the boundaries of Microservices? By this I mean a domain driven design approach.
I have a pretty good idea of what I “think” is right for my project. But something is telling me to challenge my idea.
For a little bit of background... I am using separate DBs for each Microservices, and building APIs to access the information across the system.2
My first time developing a C# project with a friend. He decided it would be a good idea to put 15 classes into a single .cs file. Ever had a person do that to you?1
I'm studying in college and just got introduced to Android development and firebase. It's wonderful. And I'm wondering for an app like devRant would it be a good idea to store the data in firebase... If not, what else options are there? Also, I'm planning to work on a similar project for my sophomore year.
Any ideas guys?2
Start a project with new idea that will totally work. Rinse and repeat every 3 days, 3 weeks, 3 months 😅
How do you guys come up with ideas for side projects? I'm really motivated to start a project but i don't have an idea... It's been going like this for weeks4
I need your help gaiz. I need an idea for a project. I have to be tech specific here as I am currently learning ASP.Net from my college curriculum. Pls halp.
A coder in need is a coder indeed.12
Planning to buy smaller laptop myself, prefer lightweight and small ones. First was looking for MacBook air but then heard about project crostini for Chromebooks. So for me that crostini seems good but I don't have any idea what Chromebook would be okeyish for development, so if anyone got any experience with crostini I would happy to take recommendations for Chromebook7
Do you have any good idea for a 2 weeks programming project for school, in a group of 5.
It should be large enough to get a 1 (or A in other countries) but small enough to do it alone, since I'm at risk of having to do it alone and drag 4 dead weights behind me.
Language doesn't matter.6
I'm looking for a project idea in cyber-security...
I'm good with x86 assembly, c, c++, python and shell scripting.
I'm very well versed with Linux operating systems and basic networking stuff.
I'm willing to learn new concepts11
Trying to become a software developer by teaching myself with tutorials, books, etc. and then realizing that I need an idea for a project to practice my skills. I don't have a good grasp of software architecture and the tutorials on the webs on this topic suck.
4 Step Plan:
1: Have a new idea
2: Work on it
3: Forget about it a week later
4: Pause project till forever!
Is there such a site that makes documentation useable through 3rd party documentation?
I'm looking at you aws docs.
Stackoverflow had a great idea when they started making stackoverflow documentation, too bad they sunset the project :(1
*Begins a java project in IntelliJ*
*Puts it on git without committing .idea folder*
*Suddenly finds out 26 libraries are needed so adds maven*
*Collaborators don't like maven*
*Battle on git between package names com.company.project and main.java.com.company.project*
Today is a productive day but also an unproductive day because I have no idea where I need to do work on project A or work for project B.2
Guys, am planning to work on a reactjs project. I learn by doing things so can anyone challenge me with an idea that involves using an API.6
Oh, there are hundreds that I've started categorizing them. They outgrew the storage capacity of my head / brain. I've tried a lot of productivity tools to organize them, but in the end, all my project ideas just remain ideas scattered somewhere unless I see it action and go like, "Hey, I had that same idea. I wonder when they got the idea. Was it before or after I had it?" In the end, I just console myself saying that for me it was only an idea in my head when those people saw it through execution and has a working product. The next step for me is to get along with them and collaborate and make that idea better rather than re-invent the same wheel again according to my idea.
Nextcloud is the biggest example of an idea that came to me and remained in my head and is still on a todo list somewhere.
Been doing webdev for 2 years straight and I need a change of pace so in my free time I wanna do a project with either Java, c# or c++.
No experience with either of them and I have no idea what I could do as a project.
Do you experienced de s have any suggestions?
(looking for a somewhat expandable project as my skills become better so I can keep building it)
Would love to hear some ideas!8
Depends on when it comes out, often it involves rebuilding my portfolio. Other times it's building a project idea, had a light week at work once and built a small app in Aurelia, then rebuilt it in Vue to test out both and compare them.
When I was looking into PWAs I rebuilt my react native app into react. Lol
Suppose u got a project idea. But for this project u have to use a totally different language, say Go as it's suits the use case. But till now u had experience in other languages like Java, node etc.
How do you switch to different language in minimum time? What points u keep in mind to get the language? U r well aware of that u may or may not use this language for another project in future. But for this project, it's best case scenario.3
Any GNU/Linux tool idea?
I'm trying to find a project idea for creating a tool for GNU/Linux. My previous projects are available on GitHub and I'm open to any suggestions.
(I prefer to create useful CLI tools specifically.)2
I've got an idea for a site I'd like to make, nothing complicated, just a little project to open source and show what I can do. I primarily use Rails and React, but this project could be done in just React with a Firebase (or similar) backend. My question is, do I make a Rails API just to show some of my rails code, or go with what I'd recommend a client do and go with Firebase? Thoughts?2
Not really a project idea per se, more of a very robust plugin idea or IDE feature (Jetbrains preferably), for suggesting better variable names while writing code.
I was given a project to fix and improve a legacy unity VR project I was told was for the oculus rift Now the problems started almost immediately partly stemming from the fact I’ve never used unity before this project was handed to me as my long term TA assignment
And partly from the fact there was no oculus integration in the game at all. it was built for GoogleVr and most of the code the last person wrote consisted of massive sections (25-50 lines) of commented out code and no explanation of what the hell the non-commented parts are supposed to be doing
So long story short. I’m now in a basic unity course, six feet deep in documentation trying to read resources that go way over my head in understanding, and am rebuilding the project from basically scratch (took the assets and saved the c# scripts for reference) and have finally figured out how to at least get the player character constantly moving forward and stream in the WRLD3D environment like the last guy did. Now to get the player character to turn and change direction when the player turns their head with the oculus headset
By the way. WRLD3D is a really cool api thing in my opinion
Me yesterday: finally weekend is coming, I'll start the research for this cool app idea that I want to make for a side project
Me today: Suma1l you magnificent son of a bitch, that blademail surprise... (I'm watching Dota vods on bed while eating snack endlessly)
Still new to development buy holy dang I had no idea clients could be so fickle.
It seems like every time I turn in my one project- which I've been on for a month because of this nonsense- they think of two more major features they wanted all along but never mentioned
I have a new idea for my discord bot. I want to make a very simple kind of conversation engine: basic replies to the user based on what they said. Sounds like a fun project.1
Any good idea for Bachelor's degree project in Computer Since?

#NonRant Programming student, doing a years study abroad and one of my courses is a self done project. My home degree is "Games Programming", exclusively done c++ so far and got no imagination. Anyone have a suggestion for something to make they can throw at me to give me an idea of what I can do?
Any good hackathon project idea that can enhance the D-Commerce Market??
D-Commerce includes all digital goods like e-books, streaming services, SaaS, etc.
I need urgent answer as quora is being weird like always. Ok here we go. I have a project idea but its really huge in size. Lots of features.
My question is. I recently learned Angular 2 but I know jquery well. Which one should I choose for the frontend? Please give your opinions. I need your expert advice.8
Hi! I study informatics. I'm looking for a nice graduation project idea. Also I'm interested in web development and AI :)4
For me it's going to be:
Learn cpp (for my education)
Make a game (to train cpp)
Try to find a project idea generator or build one
If you were working on a very interesting private project, are you scared to show it to people in case someone steals the idea?
Had a great idea for a project today but I realized that if I do I'll never go back and finish my current project.
Tmw you look at something and instantly get a new project idea.
This is why I have so many unfinished projects.
