What am I building

I was thinking about creating a portfolio because it's a perfect way to show the qualities I would mention in a resume or talk about in an interview. Which provides proof of my applicable expertise and abilities.

My personal portfolio shows some of my education history, achievements, volunteering experiences, tools expertness, dev articles and the projects that I've done. I developed this website using JavaScript, Html, and CSS. I used DigitalOcean App Platform to host my portfolio. It is amazing and convenient to build.

(What made you decide to build this particular app? What inspired you?)

Starting with the software engineering industry, I felt the need to be able to bring more expertise out there and still practice what I've learned.

How I built it

(How did you utilize DigitalOcean’s App Platform? Did you learn something new along the way? Pick up a new skill?)

I used CSS, JavaScript, SCSS (Sassy CSS😌) and HTML basically. I have worked with JavaScript to dynamically modify the website theme. I learned about deployment by reading How to deploy an app guide. I deployed my very first static app, select GitHub repo and boom💥. I am really glad that DigitalOcean App Platform support it! It was so easy to setup when I choose to start from App Platform portal. They guide me to setup my application and recommend a number of options that would be helpful.

Additional Resources/Info

Deployment on the Digital Ocean platform is very simple and effective. I genuinely liked and enjoyed my journey while I set up my App on DigitalOcean. Kudos to the team! 🥳

Looking good! Just one suggestion: in your gallery section, when a user clicks on an image make it so that it gets enlarged :)
