Simple Web Project → You just need a simple Notepad & a simple browser for web development. Save it using .html extension and BOOM💥. You have created your first web development project. Add a little CSS to make it look beautiful.

For advance Web projects you have to additionally learn Angular JS or Vue JS or maybe React Libraries.
Placements (What’s beneficial)
If you have some medium or high-level real-life Android/IOS applications mentioned in your CV, then it shows that you are passionate about coding or learning coding from scratch. Also shows that you haven’t wasted 4 years of your college by doing nothing.
Also it shows your creativity as well as knowledge of Android as an Operating System is also been shown.
If a company visits your campus🧑🎓, you definitely have an edge over others as in interviews the questions are more often asked about Android system. Even if you are not good at Data Structures & Algorithms📚, Android development could be your biggest advantage.
