How to get inspiration for code
CodeABC123 (212)

So, you probably came here because you can’t think of what to code. Well, you came to the right place! Here I will show you some ways to get inspired.

All about me

You can make a repl all about you! Ideas:

  • Biography
  • Game

But some people aren’t comfortable sharing information about themselves. In that case...


You can ask for inspiration! Just make a new ask post, using the following:

  • The title should say that you need inspiration.
  • The body should say the subject of what you want(game, tool, etc.)

Now all you have to do is wait. Once you got some good ideas, mark the one you like most as answered.

Learn a new language

You can learn a new language too! Go on learn, and search for the language. Then, start coding with what you know.
@SixBeeps and @DynamicSquid say that it’s a good idea to master a language before you do this tip.

Code with a friend

Friends will almost always get good ideas! But for some people, getting a friend and making them code might be the hardest part...

Now you are ready to get inspired! If you have any other tips, tell me in the comments.

@DynamicSquid Here's how I think of it. Not being able to think of what to code means you've fully learned a language. If there's something one doesn't know how to do, a common thing among new programmers, then they should tackle that first. This post is for people that already know at least one language and are looking for something to do (at least, that's how I interpreted it.)

And, if the person is pursuing a career in code, you would actually want to diversify your palette as much as possible once you know the basics. Being a one-trick-pony would make you not as good as the person who knows Python, Java, PHP, etc.
