During the hackathon event, Intro to Web Development my interest was piqued. I wasn't planning on creating a project until I started coding along with the presentation and got the urge to go for it.
What it does
It's a website that has some information about myself, and showcases some photography and video content I created.
How I built it
I used the website/tools on glitch.com to create my project. And I programmed with HTML and CSS.
Challenges I ran into
I wanted to create a gradient effect on my icons near the bottom of the home page, and I was having trouble trying to get it to work properly. This was my first time truly diving into HTML and CSS so I used the website w3schools.com to browse a lot of the different concepts and rules. Even with that, I wasn't able to sort it out by myself so I got help from a mentor (Alan Hunt).
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I know this project is very basic but I am proud of the fact that I even created it, when I had no plans on making anything during the hackathon.
What I learned
I learned way more about web development than I honestly thought I would. Learning how CSS and HTML work together using classes really opened things up for me. I can say that I am way more interested in web development than I was 24 hours ago. It was a lot of fun to create.
What's next for James Aquilina III Website
I want to learn how to create a drop down menu system, get better at using flexboxes, and add some more dynamic graphics to make the site pop more.
