Thanks! So I just took a look at your website its good although there are some areas that you could make better.

  1. Possibly adding a profile image on the home screen so people know what you look like
  2. I would remove the text telling people to use the nav bar. It's too technical not everyone is a programmer. Better to have one of those breadcrumb menus on the side that lets you scroll to sections or possibly an arrow pointing down.
  3. Some of the images in the skills section are stretched out too much
  4. The image of the monitor for the Todolist at the bottom needs cleaning up because there is a blue highlight on it
  5. The text in the footer would be better centre aligned i think
  6. Some of the buttons are missing the cursor pointer when you hover over them
  7. The contact form has no validation a user can submit it blank

Quite a long list but those are the major issues I saw. Other than thats its not too bad ๐Ÿ˜

Do you know what size of screen you used to view the skills section is? That would really help alot. And thanks for your feedback! ๐Ÿ™‚

MacBook Pro M1 1680 x 1050. It's like that on all screen sizes. Look at the Linux and json logo. The Linux logo is stretched there is not enough width and the json logo should be a circle but it's an oval shape. The same applies to a few others like the React logo which is not in this image. I think the images need some resizing so add more width.

Yeah, for me, I fixed a tricky bug regarding DOM manipulation on div resize, was happening, but was causing both performance as well as re-render issues in React, tried everything, however useEffect saved me. Sometimes, u know but still u ignore and continue try improper methods, I think in such situation, we really need to calm down and keep things simple...

Two weeks late but after much contemplation I decided to become an independent engineer and left my job at Pulumi after 3.5 years there. Are you looking for a Pulumi expert/cloud engineer? I am available for hire! :D

I've been working on redesigning my portfolio and blog site, stefan-wright.com, I'm using React with Typescript, and the Styled-components library. Design is not a strong point of mine, I'll probably soon design I don't like it. I also really need to try and make sure that what I do is reusable, I often find myself rewriting from the ground up!
