How to Evaluate a Good Project?
Before we start discussing the project ideas, it is very important to know how we are creating this list? What are the factors that were taken into consideration while compiling this list? And how you can evaluate your projects.
Some of the characteristics of a good project that will make you stand out of the crowd and draw your recruiter’s attention are as follows.
- Uniqueness: The uniqueness of a project is very important. Working on a unique project always sets you apart from the crowd and helps you get noticed by your recruiter.
- Difficulty and Tech Stack required: Always select a project that is a bit above your comfort level. Avoid choosing a project that is too easy for you because doing an easy task would never contribute to your learning. Make sure you don’t select a project that is too hard or beyond the scope of your current knowledge. Always try to choose a project with the best-suited difficulty level, which requires the tech stack you are learning.
- The most important thing to evaluate a project is, will you get users if you deploy your project? Making a project that adds value to other’s life or having a demand in the public domain is always valued higher. Putting a project with a user base in your resume will set you apart from the crowd.
While creating any project, always make sure that you go to the end and deploy that project. A project which has an actual link to it is always valuable. Try to market your project and get your friends and family to use it. If you have a solid user base, you will get feedback and will get to know the areas you need to improve.
Below is a list of the top seven web development project ideas that would help you to excel in web development and set you apart from the crowd. Instead of discussing concrete project ideas, we will discuss an overview of the project, so there is room for you to select a project and give it your own touch.

Front End Project: Use Other’s Back End
There are a limited number of options for projects if you do not know database and back-end technologies. But you can use some existing database created by other people or companies, generally called Application programming interface (API). APIs can provide you with required data without getting into the technicalities of implementing it.
If you love watching movies, you can make a movie recommendation system by using IMdB’s API. If you love cricket, you can build a website that gives you the latest cricket score or player stats. There are endless possibilities to build a website using API.
You can also get users as people love watching movies and playing cricket and may find your project useful. You can find a great collection of APIs at rapidapi.com

You can incorporate animations according to your choice and also add a great UI. You will easily find users for your media player, which will help you deploy your media player and take it to the next level.
Full Stack Project: E-commerce
Making an E-commerce website is very challenging and will help you to master all the concepts of web development. While making, you will get to know how the concepts of cart and checkout work. You also need to deal with logistics and order management to make a fully functioning website.
You can also help any friend or relative with a business to design a website for them, which will help them grow in their business. You will be working on a real and live project that will add value to your portfolio.
Full Stack Project: Cloning
If you are not good at designing a website, you can look for any website of your choice and replicate it with all its functionality. Replicating or cloning a website ensures that you are building an industry-standard website with currently in-demand features.
Cloning a website will help you to level up your development skills to the industry level. Cloning a website can be a good idea because you can solely focus on development rather than thinking of content and features for your website.
Full Stack Project: Necessities
Doing a project on something that you and your friends need can be very awesome. For example, you can make a notes sharing platform for your college in which a person can contribute notes and download them. You can also create an online library in which people can contribute free resources and books. The most significant advantage of making such a website is that you will get a heavy user base from the start as it is a necessity and adding a project with an active and large user base is always beneficial.
Full Stack Project: Societal Benefits
You can do a project to counter the problems that are present in your locality or society. In the current time of the pandemic, you can make a website that helps people locate resources or make a platform where people can help each other.
You can also make a website that allows people to locate the vaccination centres. These websites will help a significant part of society. These websites will get great traffic, and you will get a considerable user base while helping the community and people around you.
