I have a Portfolio now 👨💻🎉
Hey Everyone, I'm very thrilled to announce that the first version of my portfolio website is ready for everyone to see!
Check it out at https://amorpheuz.dev/. Looks like you made it here! 😋
I am originally a front-end developer, who has been polishing his React and Gatsby Skills throughout the past year. But my current pursues of Data Science academically ended up hampering my progress where I couldn't find time for projects. At the start of the worldwide lockdown situation, I was determined to get at least a couple of projects completed during my time at home. The first one of those finalized was my Portfolio Website.
Throughout 2020, I started coming across more and more blog posts that emphasized Blog Post Syndication. And you know what, they sold the idea to me! I started researching various things from other dev portfolios/blogs to design systems for it. The recent Blogging for Devs by @monicalent acted as a reaffirmation of my plan.
I found the Terminal theme by @PaulieScanlon to be the perfect foundation for my plan and started working on the idea. Many developers go with building their portfolio from scratch. I felt it would be better to start with a solid base/starter rather than starting from nothing. It thereby highlights my ability to integrate with others with my custom touches to the base. What I envisioned was a website that gave the visitor a feel of editing his development environment, basically their virtual home. My portfolio is the initial interpretation of the plan!
As you might have noticed already, I feel developing a portfolio is a continuous process. The milestone I have reached feels a great stable before moving ahead, and thus I have decided to showcase it to get some feedback! Please do leave your feedback in the comments. 😀
Before closing out, I would like to post a mix of my long and short term plans on what's next for my blog!
- Enable Canonical URLs after obtaining a custom domain.
- Start with syndication from my next blog post (Coming soon 😉).
- Develop custom components for third party content like DEV does with its liquid tags.
- Improve SEO with further research.
- Add support for the Hindi Language on the website, improve accessibility.
- Customize layouts and GraphQL queries to fetch more custom data.
- Add comments & interactivity to the website via serverless architecture.
- Integrate Projects & activity with GitHub API.
