This week's update is kind of lame. I've mostly been screwing around with building a portfolio site for myself to show off to prospective employers.
It's funny that this has been one of the more challenging projects I've worked on in awhile. I had an initial one completed in about a day, but the more I looked at it, the more I hated it.
UI/UX design is not something I consider in my skillset and I very much look forward to the day that I don't really have to worry about the design part! (Hopefully....)
All I knew, really, was that I wanted to have transition effects and such. My first iteration was built with React, but since I knew jQuery, and knew how to use its transition effects, I restarted a new design with that.
Turns out I like working with React a lot more. So, I trashed my jQuery iteration and spent a lot of my week messing around with different UI Frameworks (Material UI, React Bootstrap) etc.
I now have the basis for what I wanted to achieve. It's now a matter of populating the components with all my info/projects and screenshots.
My hope is to have this finished today....
In other news I'll be attending a virtual job fair tomorrow. Never been to an actual job fair, let alone a virtual one, so I have no idea of what to expect. But hopefully it gives me a chance to meet and network with some people.
