Like my website, I started this post a while ago but wanted to finish it once I published my website, so this will probably end up with a lot of rambling and absolutely no structure.
I began building my website a few years ago. I wrote some code, then deleted everything countless times, I still have a few .psd and .ai of my half-designed website laying around in my computer. I knew I wasn't going to respect any design I made, so I decided I'd just wing it and go with the flow.
This version of my portfolio, took me around 3 months before I pushed the code to prod, I only wrote code for this project when I felt like it, so not that often. Since I mainly used 2 different computers for this project, I decide to put my project on github and while I was at it, I made the code open source.
One of the main reason I never fully finished mt website is because I lacked personal projects to showcase, I only had my IE11 death countdown. I wanted to have a few more projects before releasing my website. And the funny thing is that I'm not even looking for work, I just wanted a website because any web developer should have a website I guess.
I apologize for this rambling post, but I had to talk about my journey to make my personal website, you can check it out here : gabriellaroche.dev and the repo right here. It really feels like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders, it's far from perfect, but I'm happy with the final result and I'm happy I finally finished this project.
