UPDATE: She's mobile-friendly now, folks! :)
I am at the beginning of my job search, which inspired the need for a portfolio website. As I've been learning web development, I've always day-dreamed about what my portfolio may look like and have been eager to make it throughout my process.
You can visit it live here.
A few weeks back I had the idea to make the layout inspired by the Fibonacci spiral. It is both an ode to both my first love of photography and my current love of programming. I first learned of the "golden ratio" while studying composition in photography, and writing a program to compute the Fibonacci sequence was coincidentally one of the first exercises I did when I first began coding.
Building this website was a wonderful learning experience. For the first time, I:
- built a React toolchain from scratch (and in turn wrote my own Webpack config)
- used a CSS Grid layout
- used CSS Modules
- created an SVG animation
- used a transition library
- used relative units for font, image, and icon sizes
- made a set of custom icons
- deployed via Travis CI
... and it feels really good! I am so proud to have something out there that feels like it comes purely from me.
The next step is making it mobile-friendly, which I will also be doing for the first time. [see update]
And, of course, I am open to suggestions if you notice anything awry.
Wish me luck! With <3, happy coding!
