  • Finished building my portfolio! saurabhdaware.in
  • Wrote an article explaining how I optimized the portfolio and the article got 27k views! also, It became my first article to get 300+, 400+ and 500+ reactions πŸ¦„.
  • I started working on a new project, It will be a web game and is one of the things that I always had in mind and I'm extremely happy to finally start working on it (I am aiming to release v1 by February)
  • I am in the middle of my university exams so I'm just proud that I could handle all the above things while studying for my exam 🌻

Such a nice portfolio site!

I would suggest making a larger area clickable for the hamburger button, right now if you press slightly above or left of the hamburger it doesn't register (I'm on mobile)

Hi, the problem is, when you scroll down I have some projects listed so if I make that target large and if user tries to click on project somewhere close to the menu he will end up opening the menu rather than going to a project.

I will see if I can make it a little larger that it is not large enough to come in between the other site content.

Thank you for your suggestion 🌻🌻

Site looks great! Couple of suggestions if they're welcome or not :P

Put an arrow in the middle of the page so it's obvious to scroll down for more content. At first glance I thought sweet, his name and links to his profiles on other sites. Then I scrolled.

Second, make the overflow menu in the lower right moon more obvious somehow. I didn't even realize it was there until a second look.

fr though, the site is great. Just don't want to miss any potential employers because HR is too lazy to attempt to scroll.

This makes so much sense I will have it for sure! Thank you so much πŸ¦„πŸ¦„

Not really sure how I can do that. I think the problem is it's color, the color kind of makes it look like it is part of browser so you don't strongy notice it. I tbh ran out of colors when I went to that part. I'll see if I can do something

Thank you so much for your suggestions they are super helpful 🌻🌻

I agree as well haha. That scroll bar isn't very a11y friendly imho, didn't even notice it initially
