Never ever use percentage based skills please. For instance, you claim to know 98% of the CSS but do you really know how flexbox, position and or padding top property works? You'd say yes but chances are that you don't. These concepts, if you study in depth are a little more complex than you can think.

What if I as an interviewer don't want a person who knows only 70%? IE, what are the things that you know or don't know? I may want a guy who knows 95% but can anyone know any technology a 100%? No.

This percentage based skill showoff looks cool and a lot of newbie developers use it but it is a very very bad practice in my opinion. For senior developers with more than a decade of experience, sometimes when they switch a job, companies don't mind if they know the language they are going to work on.

These companies know that senior developers, given some time can learn the language in order to get up and working. I hope you got my point and I hope anyone reading this comment did too.

Your portfolio has some things I really like and some things that need improvement but I appreciate your effort. Keep coding and thank you for sharing your portfolio.
