COVID19 has locked us down in rooms and apartment and left a lot of time in hand. Rather than being a loner, why not to pickup something you always wanted to do. Making an app, or may be knowing more about entrepreneurship.
We have listed down some of the cool and valuable things you can learn and feel proud doing it rather than watching random videos on Youtube.
Exploring AI, ML & DS
Don’t get me wrong, but isn’t that dream of most of programmers to explore Machine Learning & Data Science. What could be a better time than being available at home and doing something you always wanted.
This is another cool technology every software engineer should look into. OpenCV was released
Intel Corporation, and it was open sourced for the community to make it better and easier for techies to learn more about visual recognition. OpenCV is hot and there are many courses available on the internet. If you love fun while learning the we recommend A-Z Open CV Course by SuperDataScience, they have used drone, horses and real time scenarios to explain the concepts.
A new Programming Language
Every bad moment is not bad especially when you have access to your laptop and the internet. The #covid19 lock down period can be an amazing opportunity to learn a new skills and muscle up your resume.
An App you wanted
Let’s speak the fact. Almost all of us have an idea to develop a mobile app and web application. We always think that “I will develop if I have free time.” You got the free time and a lot of time to explore new modules and technologies.
Help World with #covid19
Develop a web application or an app that tells people overall affected people in the world with visual data. This will not only help a lot of people in fighting corona but also strengthen your resume and personality for the next interview explaining “You are Batman that codes too“.
Covid19 Productivity App
Productivity apps in general are designed to monitor regular timeline following office travel, schedules, gym workouts and etc. But as the government lockout is imposed, there is a need of productivity app that follows the lock down schedule using limited resources. Making something like this will help will be very helpful for people in keeping themselves healthy and keeping obesity, over eating situations away.
Learn Project management Skills
Most of us hate managers unless we are employed at lavishing company having less work. Being in the engineering side we do not understand the pain points of a team leader or a manager. Taking a shallow dive in understanding not only create opportunity to make a great culture but also open up with opportunities to become a team leader in the future.
Learn Designing Skills
UI, UX Designing is complex for most of coders and developers but in reality nothing is really complex if given time to learn the basics. The #covid19 lock down period opens up opportunity for people enthusiastic about design to explore the basics fundamentals. I am sure it will strengthen up your profile and multi functional skills.
Get basic Course on Entrepreneurship
70% people I interact in general have a vision to start their own company. But when asked why didn’t they started yet, they say they do not know where to get stated. To become an entrepreneur one do not have to go to London school of business, simple finance, business and opportunity understanding skills is enough. In case you are interested you can check one of the most popular resource to learn basic about business and entrepreneurship.
Helping people though YouTube
Youtube is a great platform and if your employer has left you free having no work from home then you can teach skills to people using youtube. You can pick the subject you know best about and use a simple web camera or high quality web camera to record it. if you are an engineer then you can easily help people to learn basic programming in 2-3 weeks.
I hope the above resources will help you in being productive and making the best of lock down period.
