Beginner Developer C# Project Ideas RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Everyone!

    My name is Mike. I'm a Cloud App Developer in training, currently enrolled in the Microsoft Software & Systems Academy (MSSA). I don't have any real-world experience programming, but I feel like I've gained enough skills to work on something simple. As of today, I'm fairly comfortable with T-SQL and developing my strength in C#. Do you all have any side-project recommendations for someone with practically zero programming experience?

    Any feedback is really appreciated!

  • Hi Mike,

    You didn't specify what platform you want to develop your project like WinForm, WPF WCF, ASP.Net. I would suggest start from Console/ WinForm project and then climbing the stairs.

    Well you could try developing following projects. Hope this helps you..


    • Basic: Develop a simple calculator which will perform some arithmetic operation like add, substract etc.
    • Advance: Develop a simple calculator which will store it's operation results in a text file/ database

    Phone Book:

    • Create a simple phonebook project which will store your contacts information and a search option to get users contact info

    Advance Project:

    • Student admission system
    • Library management
