Finally ready to step out of academic programming and into the fun stuff!

I would recommend joining up with an open source project to get some ideas.

http://code.google.com/hosting/

Google Project Hosting is a great place to find a project to work on. Sourceforge is also another good place.

Just kind of think about applications that would be useful or using the latest technologies. For example, I have always wanted to see a web based version control system to replace Subversion and Git. Or find a new technology that just came out (like WebGL or HTML5) and write a library to interface with it.

By looking at other peoples projects, usually you will get inspired to make something. Either completely different, or a “I can do that better” type application.

Good Luck!!
