@Bookie0 Do you have any ideas for things like cli tools, or websites with a backend and database that are pretty complex, because I'm trying to build up like a portfolio of good projects.

Lmao yeah most of those projects are kinda beginner lol

Maybe design a basic programming repo website, or some sort of website where users can contribute to a common cause.

@IMayBeMe So maybe something like a repo for short snippets of code that people can use?
