Building your own projects is arguably the best way to learn to code. It’s easier to stay engaged with a project when you have chosen to work on it. What’s more, working on a project gives you something to which you can add to your portfolio.
If you need further proof of the value of working on a project, you only need to look at the quality of projects we’ve seen code newbies submit to Career Karma Projects.
We’ve seen everything from a platform for campers to rent camping gear from locals to a card matching game for mobile devices. Let’s take a look at the top projects that we’ve seen this week on Career Karma Projects.
