JavaScript before Portfolio Webpage?

Has anyone decided to go rogue and complete the JavaScript work before starting your portfolio webpage? Just wondering if this might be a more efficient way… Any advice is welcome!!

Portfolio page can be made even without a line of js code but if you want to add some interactivity to the page then its better to learn some js before.


My advice would be to make it a static HTML-only page first and then keep coming back and improving your portfolio as you learn more. If you take that approach then by the time you’re done with FCC your portfolio should actually be worth showing off.


As @ArielLeslie said you can start with just a static html/css page but try to make your code as straight forward as you can because, lets say after 3 months after, you will have difficulties in even understanding your own code because, learning new things, you change perception on coding practices.
