Discussion on: How To Build A Great Technical Portfolio

I'll be honest. I like the aesthetic of your site. Except there's a few things that caused me some annoyance:

  • The cursor change. I don't personally like it, and I think it takes away from a site's accessibility when you change the user's cursor. Also, it's not a cursor shape either.

  • The background, and how it interacts with the cursor is actually distracting when using the site. Not a fan.

  • The navigation bar at the top is a little interesting. As you scroll, it flicks from Home, to Projects, then to Contact. However, it bothers me a little that Contact is not next to Projects. If you were to put Contact after Projects, then it'd flow nicer. And maybe add some kind of separator to About and Thanks so that it's clear they're not part of the "scrollable navigation".

Just my two cents, up to you whether you wanna change anything. It's your site, and it's pretty. :)
