I need a project again
So currently I have some spare time and I don’t want to waste it playing Guild Wars 2 all day long. To make me feel more productive and to learn something new I want to get myself a new project to work on. I’m currently trying to find a field to explore.
I don’t really have a clue about the average-day-work of a backend developer and can’t judge about that. For me, personally, it seems to be the more interesting part though (because it involves realizing the logic behind a website and that’s what I want to do: make awesome software work).
Inspired by my first lecture on computer networks last week I feel like programming my own webserver (in Java) might be something that’s interesting. Maybe I could use my raspberry pi to do something productive there although I don’t have any concrete idea what to do, yet.
I’m kind of lost. I feel like I miss out on many interesting things/fields of applications that I just can’t imagine. Can anyone give me some advice here?
