My First Portfolio
HTML Website created Thursday, June 01, 2017
I think this is the earliest screenshot I have from my early attempts at making a website with a proper design from scratch. I tried to go with a minimalist modern design with lots of white space again, but I wasn't happy with the loose and sloppy way the pages behaved. In retrospect, the index page does look pretty cool, and if I only still had the source code I would share it with you over on my Github. In fact, I may try to remake it sometime. I do recall that I used bootstrap to center the elements on the page and make the buttons, so this places this design somewhere in mid to late 2017.
Version 2.2.0 - Late 2017
My first stable portfolio site was made thanks to the work of Tania Rascia, a web developer who makes extremely useful tutorials for web development and design. This particular theme was made available by her for free on Github here. She has a Patreon, so you can support her there!
This theme is a trendy one page theme that looks fabulous on mobile with its sliding menu. Because at this point I was learning about the importance of responsiveness in modern web design, I took apart and reassembled this code with some modifications to learn further. Its simplicity makes it best for a resume-style personal website.
Here's a screenshot of the whole site using the FireShot FireFox extension:
