I get stuck at Portfolio Page

I have to build a portfolio page. I know what I have to do, but I don’t know how to do it or where to start. Tribute Page project was really good and I had a lot of fun. It’s so annoying to be stuck like this. Any advice is welcome.

Hey devgrips,

I was in a similar situation and didn’t know where to begin. Try looking at some examples here:

And then try some styles out for yourself. Don’t copy and paste, but rather build for yourself and then learn from any mistakes you make.

I was intimidated but found that as your coding gets better, you will come back to your page to fiddle around. Mine was not pretty by any standard, but finishing it gave me a confidence boost, and also further understanding of bootstrap 3 functions, especially the nav class and nav= “nav nav-navbar navbar-fixed-top”

Start with the navbar and work your way from there! All it takes is some googling and some examples to look at and you’ll be on your way.

Good luck and keep on trying!

I feel you. I was stuck on the portfolio page for a while too. Like weeks haha (mainly due to procrastination though). I finally got it to a place where it satisfied the user stories and looked decent; but I still make changes to it as I learn new stuff (currently struggling in the javascript section).

It helped me to break down everything that had to be done so it was less overwhelming. Like one of the user stories was to have links to your social media pages. So I spent like two consecutive days (like 5 total hours at Starbucks) just working on that. And when the social media buttons were done I started on the portfolio part, and on an on like that doing little parts until the page was complete enough.

Also, I second what budakai said: it helps a lot to look at other people's portfolios/code.
