Page is hosted on github pages. Sorry codecamp, I didn’t want to host all the images on a free 3rd party site XD.

Code can be viewed here - https://github.com/codyflynnNC/codyflynnNC.github.io

All feedback is appreciated. This page is in it’s infancy, mostly just want it finished so I can move on to next projects.

Edit: I forgot to upload my social media pages into the header navbar. will be fixed soon


#2

Having a contact button on the navbar and the landing image seems a bit redundant, but I can see why it might work. Other than that, this is a very professional looking portfolio. I’m always happy with (shades of) black and white palettes being done well. Nice work.


#3

Thanks for the feedback. I was thinking about removing the ‘contact’ link from the navbar, pehaps after codecamp reviews and approves. Yes those colors are my favorite to work with, for me, it gives a more ‘professional look’.


#4

I’d actually keep it in the navbar instead, because then I can access the contact button from anywhere in the site. Then again, it’s not a blog with a large article that it wouldn’t be an issue to scroll down a bit more for contact info.

I guess it’s really up to your design preferences in the end (which are great if this site is an indicator).


#5

Thank you for the kind words! I got the idea by looking through search results of “best portfolio websites” and then trying to mimic successful designs. Helped me alot.


#7

Ah, excellent observation. I will make those changes and while I’m at it I might add some neat jquery tricks. Thanks for the advice.


#8

Finished with your suggestions as well as added a couple nifty jquery animations. What do you think?


#10

Yeah I agree, I struggled with whether or not to go ‘all out’ with animations as they say. I have pondered putting a section called “Examples of my coding expertise” and then including some cool and funky jquery stuff, possibly some video pop up stuff etc just to demonstrate to a potential employer that I know how to do it. Imo this would show people my skills without taking away from the professionalism.


#12

Excellent point. I have removed the animations. Also, well done on the Simon game! Completely forgot about that game… kids these days won’t have any idea. haha


#13

really nice! good job! On the map print you took the cursor with it!


#14

Oops! Lol. It was an interactive google map using googlemap API but it was loading really slowly so i got frustrated and used a screen shot. I’ll fix that, thanks for the heads up!


#15

Hi,
I am viewing your site in Chrome and I don’t see any animations or smooth scrolling.
Looks professional and I love the colors on the laptop screen with the rest blurred :slight_smile:

update
I see nice subtle animations on the social icons up top!


#16

Thanks Mat. I recently added those animations and removed the others as pointed out by others, distracted from the purpose of the page.


#17

Definitely looks professional. The only thing i see is when i view this on mobile the LinkedIn link in the menu flows over to a line of its own. Other than that it looks great!


#18

It looks great! Much better than my effort.
One thing, could you make the random quote generator open in a new tab instead of replacing your portfolio page?

Well done!


#19

Thanks! I am going to change all the links to eventually open in a new tab once I get around to working on the page again. Thank you for pointing that out!

Also, thank you BFunk86, I just kinda threw the page together on a desktop screen but yeah it definitely needs some work in the media screen breakpoints. Thank you for pointing that out


#20

I’m a newbie here, but I’m very impressed and I kinda hate your for it. Kidding. I just finished this project myself and I see I’ve got a lot to learn about design.

Only thing I noticed is that at the 900px break point your projects section turns red and then back to normal at the next break point. I imagine you forgot to take that out after some testing.

Great looking portfolio!

Nice work, looks good.
