1. Asynchronous Programming
2. Functional Programming
This might not seem like an important skill to have, but the ability to write the code purely with functions makes you an expert. This skill can completely change how quickly and efficiently you solve problems. When writing the code in functional programming, you will be avoiding the shared states, mutation of data alongside effects. As a result, the code will be much more concise and easier to debug. Moreover, since the code is relatively concise, it will be executed much faster, thus reducing your load times. There’s no denying the fact that learning functional programming is a bit hard, but once you get a hold of it, you will know it is worth the time spent.
3. Writing Cross-Browser Code
4. Memory Management
This skill takes time to acquire but is not hard to master. Any web application that you are developing can leak memory, causing it to slow down if the code is not inclined toward saving up the memory space. On the other hand, in some cases, memory leaks could cause massive performance fluctuations, causing the application to consume tons of resources and not perform at the optimal speed. When you write the code that utilizes memory and the system resources correctly, you get extra performance.
5. Keep Up with the Industry
1. Web Development
2. Web Applications
One can even create a website as a presentation. For it to work perfectly, you need RevealJS and BespokeJS libraries installed in your system. These two libraries are web-based slide decks that allow the creation of some of the best and most interactive decks by using HTML scripting. One can even add in the nested slides without knowing much about the programming language. One of the great things about these presentations is that they are touch-optimized and work great with touch screen devices such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops.
4. Server Application
5. Web Servers
You can create a web server using NodeJS. The main advantage of using NodeJS is that it is event-driven, and once the execution starts taking place, it will not wait for the response of the previous call. It moves to the next call and sends in the notification of the previous call once it is done. As a result, the servers which are built using NodeJS are pretty fast, and don’t use buffering, and also provide the transfer of data in massive amounts.
1. Build a Clock
3. Tic-tac-toe Game
4. Weather App
We have asked you to make a clock, a calculator, so indeed you have seen this coming. A weather app is a good start for students to fetch the data from an online repository and display it on their app. Also, you can make it a widget for your laptop or mobile phone. One thing we would love to see in the app is the weather update of different locations, and once you change the location, the page doesn’t refresh, but it changes up the information present on the screen to provide a smooth experience to the user. Moreover, you can choose how you want to write and save the code. You can have separate files for both the front and back ends, or you can save all of them in one file, which could be an HTML file. But if you ask us, we would opt for a separate file approach.
6. To-Do List
With these projects, you will be building a great portfolio that will offer new opportunities that you are seeking in the field of computer science. In the end, we would like to close this article with one thought, don’t just copy and paste the code and call it your application. No one is there to see if you have written the code by yourself or have pasted it from somewhere else.
If you don’t have the idea on how to write the code, take guidance from other developers that are available in the online forum. But don’t just copy the code. Write it by yourself. This will be the best way to learn a new programming language along with its implementation and syntax.
