I can’t seem to pinpoint a single project to get started on. I have so much ideas for a project and keep jungling all of them in my mind.
How can I focus on one idea?
I’ve read blogs about ideas, sample projects and read countless forums. The world is full of stuff, such as music, movies, products and services. I’m a big thinker, a dreamer, and I love writing.
I think the main purpose is just to start something you’ll love doing. Okay, I’ve got it!
- Movie database – categorize our movie collection
- Real world scenerio – Doctors files (patients, records, files, vendors, etc.)

For now I’ll focus on doing a movie database. This could get really big. My husband has tons of movies and I can start there. Great, I’ve just started downloading Microsoft’s free version SQL Server 2016 SP1 Express Addition to build my database. I already have practiced writing queries for about 1-2 years in my spare time and I’m comfortable to start something on my own.
Information on SQL Server 2016 SP1 Express:
- good for small driven databases
- supports web and mobile applications
- Free 10 GB of space
- entry-level database
- has several options to upgrade to
- lightweight deployment
- easily scalable as you grow
There’s many free open source databases out there, such as MongoDB, CUBRID, MySQL, SQLite, and PostgreSQL. Just to name a few, but they all have their pros and cons of using their database just like Microsoft’s SQL Server version. However, Microsoft is a very reliable resource and they have been around for years when it comes to quality and features.
Leave me a comment below to tell me what databases worked for you. I would also love to hear about your projects that you’ve started.
