  • One idea is to build a contact list which may appear simple until you first realize to properly does this a handful of database tables are needed coupled with providing add, edit, remove, filtering etc.

    For database operations look at Entity Framework Core.

    If you have never worked with WPF if can be challenging at first so be prepared for this.

    WPF is OOP so if you plan things out properly you will ended up using Interfaces, classes, data binding and more.

    Dependent on your expertise this project might take a week to a month or something in between.
