Creating my developer portfolio site.

I love writing code right. I have been obsessed with the idea of using software to solve practical problems. Software development is a never-ending puzzle that I am passionately engaged in solving. I believe in the power of programming to transform and improve lives worldwide.

With this goal in mind, I set myself to build my portfolio to propel me towards this call. This was before the end of my Bootcamp program.

This is still a private repository as I am still on my β (beta) version. Check it out later...(will be making it public)

How I built it (what's the stack? did I run into issues or discover something new along the way?).

I bootstrapped the project using create-react-app with typescript. I had earlier made a commitment to use Typescript in all my Javascript projects going forward, and this was going to be my first attempt at it.

Just a couple of tutorials into Typescript and I was about to give it a shot on a project and more so one that will define how I am to be viewed.

So what you are looking at is the result of all that 🤓🤓🤓.

Additional Thoughts / Feelings / Stories

I am super excited that I got this off my bucket list. Still iterating through the numerous versions until I have a superb site.

Kindly check out the I really need feedback on any areas of improvement.
