Hey everyone welcome again to the new blog and I don't want to repeat all those things, So let's get started:

As you all know If you want to become a web developer or a software developer you need to practice & make a good amount of projects.

Many people just watch tons of videos or courses or some lecture videos on any platform.

But the major thing that every learner does not do is making projects by applying those things that they have learned during courses.

So here I am providing a list of some of the best Beginner-friendly React.js or you can also make this using Next.js or whichever Framework that you prefer.

All these projects are very basic and beginner projects, so if you are a beginner and just started to learn Web development or learning from 2&3 months then these projects will be very ideal for you as practice projects.

Here is the list of those projects:

UIUO (User Input User Output)

This project will help you to get familiar with the forms in react.js and also you will know how you can output the data entered by a user in the input field.

This is basically a JavaScript project in which you can make use of useState Hook which is a very important Hook and also about React.js forms in which you will use an input field which you will be updated using the increment and decrement buttons and you have to write the logic of these buttons to function properly.

Design the Home Page of any Website

(My recommendation will be to create a simple UI for Google Home Page.)

As React.js is especially for creating UI/UX so you should focus on that as well. Try to implement good CSS and also include some animations in the project if you can. You can also use React animation package or Library.

Don build this in a single page code, try to break it into different components as you know React is all about Components.

What you will learn:

  • CSS

  • Creating Rich UI/UX

Now you would be thinking that these projects are very easy to build and you will ignore these projects.

But please don't skip this, these simple projects will build your basic knowledge and you will never forget them.

So now let's talk about the other 5 projects, these are one level up than the above projects :

Todo List App
