Project to build for yourself as a developer

Okay so you are a developer and have built a lot of projects. But wait you forgot yourself in the process.

You built software to help the world but what about you. Did you build anything specifically for yourself?

No? Then what are you waiting for? You have the skills, you know what are your needs, you know what activities do you do on a repetitive basis that can be automated by some software.

My Personal Example

So what did I do? I built a software that automatically opened these sites for me every time my computer starts.

Language Used

What I did above comes under artificial intelligence and there is no other language as good as Python for that task.

This was just a very basic example. You too can find some task that you do repeatedly which could be automated. Basically, build a kind of virtual assistant specific to your needs. This not only saves you time but also gives you some hands-on experience of building an AI.

There is this amazing book which I read which inspired me to automate my daily tasks. The book is called Automate the Boring Stuff with Python: Practical Programming for Total Beginners.

I would highly recommend you all to read this book irrespective of your current level in the field of programming.

This book teaches you couple of technology used to automate some of the stuff we do daily and gives sample code as well.

After all,

What use is programming is we are not able to make our own lives better using it!
