How to get inspiration for code
CodeABC123 (198)

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...

Not being able to think of what to code means you've fully learned a language


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

Actually not really. You would like to master a language first, and then possibly learn related languages. And besides, no job will ask you to do a task in C++, but the next day switch over to Java, but your co workers use Python.

And even still, once you mastered a language and more importantly, how to use that language effectively, learning another language is just a matter of a new syntax.
