The Time has finally come!
I have Finally put in all the work to put together my Dev Portfolio.
This was a project I was not expecting to put in as much as effort and time as I did. At first thinking it was just a quick project that I could throw a few links in with my picture and an about me Section and Done! but nope... This one took quite a while indeed 😅
I was basing this on the previous tester Portfolio I created for my FreeCodeCamp project which you can have a peek at here: https://codepen.io/malczzero/full/wvMbazy
That project was also not easy by any means but I had tutorials of a sort to follow. However in this case it was all me in this regard and thinking on my feet as I go. Ofcourse the same I have done for other projects in my Bootcamp. I can definitely say now it has been a rewarding experience to test all the skills I have learnt and to put it into a major(mini) project like this.
My main motivation for starting a portfolio halfway through my bootcamp is that its hard out here to get work. I will be real. and As well as doing Coding for the love and interest of learning I have real life bills to pay which wont wait for no-one! So with that being said I have to put myself out there and make ends meet.
One of the main ways this was ittereated over to me again and again was to create a portfolio with some basic projects you have worked on in the past to demonstrate your skill and capability. SO this is what I have done.
In the end I was able to get around all the bugs and obstacles and get it done! Another challenging aspect was now getting the site published with a Custom Domain. I bought a domain last year in hopes to have my own site one day, and guess what... we are finally here! Getting the DNS records, A records, CNAME to get configured and working properly has been a challenge indeed.
However this is a learning experiene I will need to relish in so I can apply this to the future projects I will work on for businesses etc.
SO I hope you enjoyed my article this time round and take something from it. Please have a look at my portfolio and tell me what you think.. This is the first stages and I will be improving it continuously as I grow and adding better projects to it too.
