🆕 Project: Magic Form (Beta). Medium.

Most professional sites have an online form to fill out — whether for registering, ordering food, or making payments. But sometimes if you accidentally reload a page with a form, you can lose all the data. In this project, you’ll create a form that will retain the data when the page closes unexpectedly.

🆕 Project: Tasklist (Beta). Hard.

It’s always good to have a reminder of important tasks. It may be simple paper notes or a sophisticated app. In this project, you will create a text-based program that shows tasks, deadlines, and priorities.

🆕 Project: In-Memory Notepad. Medium.

Every day we face a shower of information that pours upon us from all quarters. It’s easy to forget the most important things in that flow. In this project, you’ll create a simple in-memory database that supports CRUD (create, read, update, and delete) operations and helps you structure your data.

🆕 Project: Duplicate File Handler (Beta). Challenging.

Duplicate file handler is a useful tool that can free some space on your drive. In this project, you will write a handler that checks and compares files in a folder, displays the result, and removes duplicates.

🆕 Topics: 

Math

🆕 Topics: Linear functions, Gradient descent, Modular arithmetic

Fundamentals

Note that projects marked as Beta are still in the early stages of testing. In order to see Beta projects on the platform, you need to have the Beta tester feature enabled in your profile settings.
