What are your favorite portfolio sites for devs?

I'm looking for some portfolio site inspiration! I'd love to see your favorite sites by other developers or or even even your own site if you're happy with it.

My site is overdue for a refresh and the hardest part for me is always deciding on a design. It would be great to have some more ideas.

My favorite so far is brittanychiang.com. I like the way the content is structured, I like the dark theme, I like the monochrome color scheme and she has some really tasteful animations.

I don't love that you have to wait for a loading animation but maybe it's worth the impact of the site.

 

I love the feel of this site and the design I love the feel of a terminal.

 

Loved this portfolio. What are tech stacks of this site. @monica saltar

 

Built on GatsbyJS, here's her github repo: github.com/bchiang7/v4

Thanks ๐Ÿ˜Š

 

Check out the browser extension Wappalyzer.

 

Not sure, but her page has a link to the site's github that should give you some info.

 

Oh wow that is super cool

 
 

WOW! Bruno Simon took it to a next level.

 

OMG. That is incredible. That guy has serious skills.

 

W. T. F. amazing

 

Dayum Bruno Simon is so good

 

Bruno's site is god-like! However, I'm going to say this lacks some user experience as it requires you to navigate around with a car when sometimes people just want to look at your work without gimmicks. In other words, this site works best if you're solely a game developer, but if you're looking to get employers to look at your resume to decide if they want to hire you for a quick project, there's a chance that they will give up halfway trying to navigate the car around.

I'm sorry guys, 10/10 on web skills but 4/10 on content organization; just trying to call it as I see it. Also, my Macbook Pro overheated just trying to drive the car D:

 

You can also navigate with the mouse (click and drag). But this isn't explained anywhere as far as I've seen.

 

My thoughts exactly. Cool game. But bad portfolio page

 

Bruno's portafolio is amazing!!!

Also Roby's portafolio, so colorfull, I loved it <3

 

After see , i asking myself if one day i really can do something look like this ...

 
 

fyi: Ben your site throws a certificate error:

  • SSL_ERROR_BAD_CERT_DOMAIN
https://benhalpern.com/



Unable to communicate securely with peer: requested domain name does not match the serverโ€™s certificate.

๐Ÿ˜‚ impressive

 

Best retro page I've seen. Lol

 
 

if you designed that, then you're not aspiring.

 

I got overwhelmed looking for inspiration ๐Ÿ˜‚ so in the end I went with simple
pachi.dev

 

Ha, looks good!

Sometimes simple is a good call ๐Ÿ‘ In the past I would get caught up in these Big Awesome Ideas and then burnout because I didn't know when to let it go lol

 

That is definitely a great point!

 
 
 
 

The first one (zainamro.com) couldn't be more minimalistic than that, haha!

 

Brutalist more than minimalistic :)

I literally sat waiting for it to load ๐Ÿ˜…

 

Lol Jack McDade's home page looks like the title of an action movie he stars in.

 

I recently redesigned my portfolio website to be more minimalist as it was very busy and ugly before. I'm quite happy with how it turned out!

andysmith.me

 

Nice! I like your experience page, looks good and it's easy to see the important info at a glance ๐Ÿ‘

I noticed you don't have projects listed like most people do, how come? Has anyone had an issue with that? Asking bc I might do the same, I'm not able to share my work projects from the last few years.

 

Thanks! Really appreciate the feedback

Honestly though, I don't know why I didn't add a projects page as my previous design had them. I think it's definitely good to include though if you do have them or are able to share them

 

AmeliaWattenberger.com - the site really invites you to play with the awesome visualisations. Great work from Amelia.

 

Wow she has a ton of content too!

 

My friends and I found that it took too long to build portfolio sites... so we teamed up and instead built a site that makes your portfolio for you.

Still under development, but here's my portfolio: joinhelm.com/portfolio/5d6c7f9c19e...

 

Helm is cool! as someone who does more casual side projects, it's a lot easier to build a portfolio here than doing a custom portfolio site. Seeing other projects is also helpful

 

alexacea.com
davidhellmann.com
michael-schultz.at -> this is my best friend
benjamin-raffetseder.com -> and my portfolio (I'll relaunch it in a few days/weeks)

 

I like your site, it's simple but the overlayed text, staggered callouts and font choices keep it interesting ๐Ÿ‘Œ

 

Thanks, I currently work on a polished version of it, with some font changes and improvements. I also want to leave the old CMS behind and build it more modern.

I think, I usually redesign my site every six months or something like that. ๐Ÿ˜…

I'm glad you liked it! I'm also pretty interested with what you going to come up with!(:

 

I like this one a lot: caferati.me/ by Rafael

 
 

I haven't seen that yet, thanks!

 

Nothing compared to all other awesome portfolios but here's another one

anuraghazra.github.io

 

I recently came across James Long and he has a pretty neat animation on his site jlongster.com/

But my overall favourite still is Jake Albaugh jakealbaugh.com/

 

The portfolio design should more close to your personality. I gave my portfolio a new design three months ago, I applied dark and bold elements that suite my personal taste. I built everything from scratch with my bare hands. I use my in-house dev tools such as krugurt.js MVP framework and Yogurt CSS for styling.

I like your background.
FPGA, Firmware, Web and UX; That's what I call a real full stack engineer !

 

Here's mine :D, hope you'll like it.

Here's mine, hope it helps! zekinteractive.com

 

Nice, I like that Arapey font you used ๐Ÿ‘Œ

Holy, that is an experience. The fan in my laptop kicks into overdrive when I visit that site ๐Ÿ˜‚

 

Well, we can say that you are a "fan" of my website :D

Omg take your like and get out of here lol

 

What's up with all these loading/splash screens?
Are there any reason for this I am not aware of?

Nice collection, by the way.

 

A bit of self promotion here, but I took inspiration from so many places to put bhavaniravi.com together. Hope it inspires you too.

 

Not so fancy, But a simple implementation if you like to take a look at my personal site. galodha.com

 

Hello great site!
Can you tell me the tech stack used?

 

Glad Andreas you liked it. You can find the source code at github.com/abhinavgalodha/homepage
