Tiny Projects for Learning Programming

Julian Evans wrote a wonderful blog post about tiny programming projects. They are things like scrapping the webpage of a festival to make a calendar, or generating crossword from text files.

I too love writing these little, single use programs. I think this is why I like teaching intro to programming and doing programming contests — it gives me an excuse to write lots of little programs. The last tiny program I wrote was a script for finding solutions to wordle. That was a fun project.
