Great post, I’m loving all the beautiful portfolios of such talented front end and web devs.
I am curious what your thoughts are on portfolios or personal sites of back end or database devs. How do you construct examples of projects that are in the same way visually compelling to describe dev work that is purely back end or unable to be shared because it would be putting company data out on the internet?
I think with company work, I would instead just put a description of your job at the company instead of the project. For backend work, I would include descriptions of projects with links and just a minimalist site-- you could even use a template!
Good advice... and less work for me to do :)
I like the idea of a simple template, or even just a landing page.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
