The Where’s Waldo project was a particularly integrated one, but this project is the first time you will put everything together and build a full website. To do so, you will clone your favorite website.
This is a fantastic exercise because it allows you to build something meaningful and impressive without worrying about coming up with a full site on your own. When you show employers, they’ll likely already have experience with the site and you can focus on the technical implementation details instead of why you chose to build another social network for cats.
Of course, you can’t copy every single feature and a lot of the user interface will be a bit clunkier, but you can get yourself 80% of the way there. And that’s darn impressive.
