Completed portfolio and certification

Just finished the last project, the portfolio and got my Responsive Web Design Certification. WooHoo! I set a goal to complete it and did which feels really good.

Portfolio Project


Great many more to common keep coding and learning .
Go are going good.

Congratulations on your cert! Will you be moving on to learning JavaScript now? I’m a little bit ahead of you as I achieved my certificate a few weeks ago. If so I’ll be seeing you around I’m sure!

Applaud yourself for this achievement though. You’re doing amazing. A lot of people can’t say they made it to the responsive design cert but you can!

All that being said are you looking for some feedback for your portfolio project? I can’t help but ask since this is in the project feedback section.

If not, here’s another congrats! Happy coding :+1:


Great work !

I suggest you put the same box-shadow at the flyover button certification. you can soften the shadow too

Thanks! I’m always open to feedback. I’m almost done with JavaScript as well. I’m working through the algorithms now and then onto the projects. I’ve been a VB.Net web developer until I got laid off last year and decided to take some time to learn C# and MVC as well as come here and get a complete background in the front end skills. I was competent with HTML/CSS and used JavaScript as needed, but wasn’t solid with it. Now I feel I have a much better foundation. I just finished my second callback interview with a company for a web developer position and am hoping to get an offer soon. :sunglasses:

Wow that’s awesome! Good luck on that dev position. That sounds like such a dream to me at the moment. Can’t wait to see your projects, I’m curious to see how a seasoned dev tackles those JS projects.

As for your portfolio, here’s a few suggestions:


  • I’d be careful, with your link color, and visited color. It’s a little hard on the eyes.
    Screenshot%20(5) Screenshot%20(6)
  • I’m a huge fan of symmetry, I’d recommend centering your get in touch section. Just a personal preference though.


Looking through your code through your index.html file I noticed a few things I would consider for the future:

  • I would strongly advise against using <br /> for spacing. Get in the habit of changing the padding and margins to achieve your desired spacing. Using it to achieve spacing within a div is fine but spacing between paragraphs or sections is a technical no no.
  • Be careful with your use of <h> tags. I noticed you jumped from h1 to h3. Using h tags correctly will make your code more accessible to screen reads.

That’s really all I could find and I was trying to be nitpicky.

Overall great project. I love how organized your css file was. I’ve seen some real messes before.

Thanks for the feedback! Yeah, I was thinking about the link colors as well and I was being lazy with the <br />s. It was 2 am and I just wanted to get it up. :laughing: I’ll be going back over it later and do some tweaking.


Congrats!! I hope to be getting my certification shortly after you. I’m about to start my portfolio project this evening. Wish me luck!
