I created this website to showcase some of my skills. There is a lot left to do to make it better but I’m getting stuck in analysis-paralysis.
These are all the issues I’ve identified so far: link. But I’m not sure what to focus on/how to balance my time.
I don’t want to keep tweaking the site if it’s actually more important (to recruiters) that I’ve done other things like creating test scripts…? But then I don’t want to waste time learning something new (like creating test scripts) if it’s better to continue honing existing skills (i.e. d3).
When I resize the window, I can see some UI issues on the website. If you want to use a project to show your skills, it should look like a website which is ready, at least something that you would release as an MVP.
Don’t focus on adding new features to the website. Focus on 2-3 core features and try to make website looking good on mobile devices and align all UI elements.
I suggest that you keep coming back to it as you learn more. Maybe every time you finish a project, you should come back to your portfolio to add that project and also to use your new knowledge to put another layer of polish on.
Thanks. If you have the time would you mind adding the issue you see to Issues list in GitHub? I already listed the sizing issue of maps so no need to add that. But other issues would be helpful. Thanks! Link
Personally I have moved to another country hoping that my IT skills (no I know how pathetic they were) would help me get a nice job. I have ended up desperately looking for anything there was. Just as I was about to get a very messy job (literally digging hard rock in someone’s basement) I got lucky and got a programming job. Thanks
