Who am I announcing this to? I'm not sure. It's a total vanity project, but we all need a vanity project or two!
I filled out my details, deployed to Github pages, and called it a day. The page saw a few content updates, some under-the-hood optimizations for SEO and Lighthouse, and the addition of minor UI tweaks like Font Awesome icons.
Things were fine, but I felt the site had started to feel dated and didn't reflect my current skills. So I went on the hunt for new ideas.
I am an engineer by trade and CS geek by night. As hard as I try, graphic design just isn't my strong suit. However, people are kind and open-source is awesome! If you ever lack inspiration, search out the community. Just remember to cite the helpful people who contribute to your work :).
After some hunting, I arrived at this cool freeCodeCamp tutorial! This guy was great a great teacher and I learned a lot from this tutorial. I typically work with React so this was my first Svelte introduction. I would say this is a good place to start.
I took his great design and made some tweaks such as adding my details, a skills section, and custom links.
Please go check out the new site or view some of these fun screenshots.
