First thing, I hope I put this topic in correct subforum, if not I'm sorry.
I want to create a little project to put in my resume/CV/what's it called in US to help me in getting my internship as Junior Java Developer. I'm on my first year of CS, so the competition is rather ahead from me.
My idea about the project: online chess playroom (with user ranking system, if I manage), with some chat and interactive tutorial. What frameworks could/should I use here and is this even real to make in 2-3 months with studying CS and Java on my head?
Chess? Possible. But before all that, you need to decide what kind of app is it? Web, desktop, mobile etc?
Going a step further. An app can be broken down to several modules or packages or entities. Take chess for example even though I don't know the rules, there's the board, the chess pieces, the player(s), the rules, the AI. The list goes on.
Thinking about it, such idea looks like a year long project from design to testing. Yet throughout the process, you sure will learn a lot, not simply Java.
