Re: Do You Struggle For Programming Ideas?
This thread has drifted way OT oh wells. Anyway I answered No to your poll because I have at least the next couple of years booked out programming project wise.
I choose two types of projects. 1 is the project I want to do (normally some sort of computer game or programming tool). Then I work out what skills I need to be able to write that program. Then I choose some smaller projects that will help me gain the skills I need to complete the primary goal. But since you don't seem to even have an area of interest unlike me you might need some other approach. All I can think of is that you look at things that seem interesting and start there. If you are doing something boring then you lose interest quickly. Better to have a goal you want to achieve than one you don't.
Another aspect you could look at is what sort of person are you? Are you logical, mathematical, visual, auditory, language, social, etc? Looking at programs that fit in with those areas might help.
Where does it say I know what I'm talking about?
