- Why You Should Build Projects When You Are Coding
Just now·2 min read
“Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.”
― Rick Cook, The Wizardry Compiled
Once you’ve figured out what about coding (it can be anything) sparks your interest, the next thing to do is to start your own projects. I definitely believe that completing a personal project is 1000 times more valuable than completing an online certificate because it prepares you better for what coders and programmers actually do.
I know that coming up with a project idea can be quiet difficult, so I will leave some ideas below:
- If you’re a soccer fan, can you collect data and see what parts are the most indicative of a team winning a game? Is it the team with the highest goal percentage? Is it the away team? etc…
If you want to dive into the world of deep learning and ML, can you create your own model that detects whether someone is wearing itglasses? (YouTube Tutorials)
If you like cooking, see if you can find a recipe dataset (or better yet collect your own data) and create a model that shows a replacement ingredient for a missing ingredient from the recipe you are looking at.
“Let us take you into a deeper experience, make a moment a lasting conveyable memory. Let us help build your tribe.”
― Deep Immersion
And I would like to finish with this excellent quote:
“Any fool can write code that a computer can understand. Good programmers write code that humans can understand.”
― Martin Fowler
Thank you for reading I wish you the best of luck on your learning journey, If you would please give this post some claps I would hugely appreciate it because it really motivates e and helps me out.
