My early days of web development, with very little knowledge of HTML, CSS & PHP, I challanged myself to code from scratch and all by hand my very first portfolio. I went for a vertical scrolling site, with navigation jumping the user to parts of the page. My projects featured in picture frames on a brick wall, as if they were hung in a studio. Each project coming with its own web page, featuring a project title, video if it had one, a breif description and a series of images, again in picture frames. This was followed by a statement from a tutor on the project and a comment section. This meant a php form for each project page. This one of my main challanges, getting my first ever form to send to my email address, and a valuable skill I have learnt and took on to other web projects.
This website had many issues, the biggest been its responsiveness, this was none existant. In an all round way, I was very proud of this development at the time, but it became short lived and served as a basis for Version 2.0 of the portfolio, alot of the code learnt here was taken into the build of the next iteration of the site.
