    I'm going to uni in september to start my Computer Science undergraduate degree (at Liverpool University). I don't want to spend the summer holiday lounging around doing nothing. So I've come up with the brilliant idea of starting a programming project. I'm very proficient in python and SQL and I'm learning JS, I'm still on the basics though, as in declaring variables and stuff :/

    I'm not sure what I could do tbh for a project any ideas?

    Think of a problem, or something that you need or something that you think people will need that doesn't exist. There is no point in doing something that has been done before.

    If you have some cash, get a raspberry pi and some electronic sensors, try to get the data from the sensors and display on a live webpage. Will sound pointless but the knowledge you gain from doing that will benefit you a lot. You'll pick up skills from writing simple servers, IO interfacing with pi, some web skills etc.

    Hell yea, I did something similar for my Computing A2 project. Except I custom built arduino based embedded systems in addition to using raspberry pi's. Sounds like a simple project, but I ended up using PHP, SQL, Javascript, Python and C++, not even mentioning all the electronics knowledge I gained.
