It's my Winter Break again. I'd like to continue programming over my break to get some coding projects under my belt, and stay in practice.

What kind of things could I be programming?

I had thought about teaching myself a bit of web development. Or maybe trying to build an additive synthesizer from scratch.

I'd like you guys opinion on what I could build. It would help my resume too.

The information in each issue is too powerful for most guys to handle. If you are an ordinary guy, it is not for you. It is meant for the elite few – not the unwashed masses.

If you think you can handle it...

But if you're just an average Joe, an ordinary guy, no one special – and wish to continue being so – then skip this. It's too much power for you.

Ask students who've taken the succeeding classes you're about to about the material that's being covered and you can try to pursue some of that to be better prepared for what's coming. You can probably find bookstores (online or brick-and-mortar) which have textbooks w exercises that you can do.

It's hard to answer this without knowing what your career goals are. I've been doing some Python programming at my day job which is Information Security/Network Security. Python is all about automating tasks that old school network guys have typically done by hand like program routers and switches and firewalls. IT now is all about "what can be automated to save you time so we can pile more work on you". Python is similar to what Perl used to be if you know much about that.

I'll probably do that too Nick. I'll focus on building a website where I can share my CV + building some Telegram bots using Python so I can learn the language. However, I have final exams too so we'll see how much time do I have available to personal projects.

Not long ago I developed a simple C++ program with a workout routine where you can keep track of the weight and the exercises you have to do each day. It's pretty simple but if you have github we can work on that if you want.

What is your speciality? Artificial Intelligence, Software, Websites?

I would do something about IoT or AI , I know many students get hired just because their project was about one of the hot techs , after talking with them , it sounds they just use Azure and AWS api to make the calls, however they still got hired.

My concentration is Software and Scientific Applications

AI is really big right now for sure. I actually plan to take a class on that in the next Fall.

Seeing as you're pretty focused on money why not create a finance app?
That could be fun. Especially seeing that I have an Android now. I've heard that it's more enjoyable programming for Androids than Apple Devices. Heck maybe I can use it to make sure my money doesn't go down the drain next semester lol.
