Portfolio Page Linked

Index aite with Portfolio link sctive

It’s sort of a milestone. For more than two months, I’ve been working on my portfolio page whenever I could find the time. Design, code, and test. There’s still a lot of testing to do… and coding… and designing. It’s not 100% done and not 100% good yet, but I have enough good stuff to show you what I have so far.

The first screen the visitor sees on page load.

This page may not look that complicated or that impressive (even to designers), but there’s more than enough happening in the backend that I am proud to have come so far in the past two months. In the process, I’ve learned a new programming language that is very powerful and opened a lot of doors for my creative outlet. I look forward to learning more PHP as well as the next step up, whatever that is.

Next entry will be very special. Another milestone. I haven’t decided what to do yet.

    Congrats! I’ve been checking in on your portfolio section for the last couple of months to see for myself how it’s been coming along.
    It looks slick and through my own navigating have found no bugs or errors; I don’t understand a lick of php but it seems as though you’re pretty solid at it.
    One small gripe of mine, however, is that on my first visit the panels were collapsed and I think it may be best for them to be expanded of the first visit.
    Also, I really like your resume section and how you’ve retained the headers and text styling throughout all sections. I also dig the extension of the bg photo on your resume section.

    Thanks for commenting guys!

    Sam, The PHP actually makes it easier for me to update and add to the portfolio; it had little to do with the layout design. But I do feel more confident with it now. Still got lots to learn, though.

    And as for the panels, I had them collapsed because I felt the panels were overwhelming. But from your (a visitor’s) point of view, did you feel like you didn’t know what was going on when you saw the panels? I can switch that up pretty easily if visitors seem to get it without me collapsing the panels for them at first visit.
