For now though, many are still taking the time to learn it. And even if it may not always be the premier language for high-end programming projects, it still has a lot to offer — even for beginners who are only dabbling in computer programming.
These might not be the projects you’re ultimately learning the language for, but they speak well to its utility and versatility even today.
Design a Game
Granted it might be a little bit of a stretch to call this a beginner project. But in many cases a game design will be a big project more than a particularly complex one.
It’s easy enough to find research materials and tutorials that will help you with the specific design concepts at hand.
Program an Arduino
If you’re more software-oriented and haven’t given much thought to Arduino before, this is worth a quick explanation.
An Arduino is effectively a programmable hardware board that can pair with software in order to function.
More to the point, Altium’s Arduino schematics guide describes these boards as being great platforms for hobbyists and those interested in getting started with new, functional designs.
There’s a guide to an LED light Arduino project on Medium that gets into some of the details — including why and how to use the Node.js environment to make this kind of application work.
Build an App
Enhance Your Website’s SEO
To some extent this is actually an argument to build a website of your own via another language, if you’re concerned about SEO. On the other hand, it’s also a learning opportunity.
At the same time though, fun projects can test you, expand your learning, and keep you interested. In that respect, all of the above are good to keep in mind.
