Portfolio - Version 2
Every project has to have a why. In this case, I redesigned my portfolio because the first version was unprofessional, and it does not reflect my skills. Back when I created version 1, I had no work to showcase and I ended up using android themes I created as a placeholder.
It’s been almost half a year since then, so my portfolio is long overdue for a proper overhaul. I mean, I still don’t have any good projects to showcase, but hopefully I’ll get something up soon.
This project doesn’t use any tools that are new to me. I tried to stick to tech I knew, because I wanted to focus on the content and design.
Technologies used include:
- GitHub Pages
- SASS + Bourbon + Neat
That’s pretty much it. Nothing crazy. I do want to talk about how I structured the project, kept it organized, and managed my files. I think that is where I really made a breakthrough in this project. I’ll save that for another post though.
Documenting Version 1
I don’t want to forget the visual design of the first edition of my portfolio. In 10 years, I will have gone through many redesigns of my site, and I want to keep track of each iteration so I have something to remember. This was inspired by DevTips creator Travis showing his old work.
Here is the first version of the site.
