Programming projects-suggestions

(OP)
Hi All,

I thought it would be useful to start a list of useful projects which everyone can use as practice to:

1. improve their programming,
2. add to their "portfolio",
3. put on their website,
4. present to future employers

etc.

I have some ideas and suggestions but I though I would see what everyone thought first..  

RE: Programming projects-suggestions

Not really related to Microsoft Certification, is it?

Anything that helps yourprogramming is beneficial to helping you pass your certification.

To pass your certification you should:

1. Learned the subject.
2. Write programs to reinforce your knowledge.


Whatever IT subject you learn you should do practicals rather than just rely on reading.

RE: Programming projects-suggestions

(OP)
although programming is vastly different to networking you still need to gain practical experience. I note that you have your MCSE-did you gain the certs purely by reading the Microsoft Press books?

RE: Programming projects-suggestions

No.  In fact I didn't even start my certification exams until I had over 10 years of experience in the industry.

so when someone is learning a subject area for the first time and taking exams then practical experience is important.

However we both seem to have gained experience first before going for certification....

RE: Programming projects-suggestions

Here are some ideas to get you thinking..

1.    Games (e.g. Chess / Noughts and crosses/ 3-dimensional noughts and crosses smile)
2.    Cricket scorecard
3.    Football tables/fixture lists/result predictor
