Great post! I currently have a portfolio site that was made with HTML, CSS, JS, Bootstrap.
I'm just wondering why you chose to make a portfolio site with React (i.e. would it be beneficial to update my site and use React as well?).

Glad you liked it. My main aim with this was to provide reader a quick introduction with how different services in GitHub Student Developer pack can be used through a single project. It's completely not neccessary to use React for building a portfolio. It was easier for me to explain using React. Shifting to React is a completely personal choice. My personal portfolio was using html,css,js for long time until I shifted to Gatsby based website recently.

Basically every company uses frameworks, I dont know one that doesn't. Showing that you have skills in a framework like react is good.

Not using React is fine as well, use what the job requires. React (non-Gatsby) runs a lot of JS on the client and can slow down your page load. If your portfolio can do everything you need without React why not stick with it? You can show off your React skills in the projects in your portfolio. :)
