How to get inspiration for code

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.

What about the world of web development?

I actually consider HTML, JS, and CSS as "one" language. They are meant to be together, and you will naturally learn all three as you progress.

Also, yes, full stack developers are a thing, however, they didn't start by learning HTML one day, then switching over to PHP the other day, and learning parts of CSS, but then going back to parts of HTML. They started by learning HTML first (or at least you should), then JS, and then mastering those languages, before finally moving into Python or PHP.

But if you learn all of them, you have more options available to you

I'm not saying that you shouldn't learn another language, but you should only do it once you've mastered one language first. No job is going to hire you if you know a little bit of Python, a little bit of Java, a little bit of C++, and a little bit of Android. All the good paying jobs are only looking for people that know a language, like know a language - mastered it.

All and all, I still do believe that learning new languages (especially ones that are in a different field) is not a priority to pursue.
