What are your favorite portfolio sites for devs?

mon_ste_cat profile image Monica Stevens ・1 min read

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.

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

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

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.

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!

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

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

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. 😅

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

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

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.
