WDI Day Four: Portfolio Website Lab

Today was our first lab day. We started off with a lesson in Git, and then off we went to work on building a site for our portfolio. I’ll admit, I’m at a bit of an advantage when it comes to working with layout. Since I’ve had extensive experience in web design, I happily tackle styling whenever it comes up. I managed to style the basics for my overall portfolio site during the day, and started thinking about how I’d like to rollout JavaScript as a later functionality.

Things to add later:

  • Tabbed browsing for portfolio sections (web, application, and illustration)
  • Sorting filters
  • Transitions for the anchor links
  • Additional scrolling animations
  • Making the site mobile-friendly

Overall, I felt like I accomplished a fair amount, however I’m more excited about starting JavaScript tomorrow since today was yet another review day for me.
