I begin my final year of a 5 year course, which will make me a Bachelor of Digital and Software systems. I have to think of a project, which I know I will keep mostly if not all software ( I love programming ).
I think I will use Java ( although I am more experienced at C++ ) as I like the portability aspect, and although to save time I will develope my project on the most familiar OS ( Windows ) I would like it to work on my most preferred platfom ( Linux ).
My question is, what does a propective emploer / interviewer like to see in a project that was chosen.
Everything I have thought of has been done already ( e.g. an on line compiler ).
Any guidance / wisdom is appreciated.
