re: What does a dev's personal website need to include? VIEW POST

  • It should load quickly. Render static from a CDN.
  • It should get to the point. Describe your skills and interests.
  • It should link to things you’ve written.
  • It should link to your profiles: GitHub, DEV, etc.
  • It shouldn’t be overly fancy, or generic. Make it unique but understated if possible. Going to flashy can really be a bad idea in web design.
  • It probably shouldn’t look like this

Plot twist: your website was actually an example of what not to do all along.


The fact that that website plays music when you scroll is the greatest and yet most terrible thing ever.


lool, it should definitely not look like that😄


The site is amazing and I added it to my favorite sites list


HHAHAAHAH I was actually going to comment "nothing like Ben's, unless you're Ben" :D


Is http:// also part of the statement?


That’s a matter of having not updated this in years. I’ll get that updated soon, I swear!

I think in this particular case it works in your favor. Subtle and completes the picture =)


10/10 with you except for the third point. I'm in a fulltime job and all our projects are basically private, which means, I'm not allowed to show any code.

How would be your solution there? I did some stuff on my GitHub or CodePen, but appearently due to being in a fulltime position, I do not have much time to maintain open source stuff anymore.


I just got a call from 1990; they want their website back...


No, never watched Rick and Morty.

okay. One of the characters uses a similar line. I thought perhaps you were referencing the show
