Hi,

I am self taught developer, who just finished his very first website.

Can I please get some feedback?

Love the website. Very snappy. Loved the home page section, in all ways. Snappy minimal and fast.

But couple of things that caught my eyes...

  1. Navigation bar hover effect is on the top, felt weird. While this could be a personal choice, when it comes to making this for others to attract/get noticed, I keep things as standard as possible. Just a thought.

  2. Skills page: The page is extremely dim and felt dull. While you made the logo get brighter when on hover, I didn't even hover on any square logo elements at first time. Just went directly past that section. And to me, it was a dim and dull page. If I didn't realise it would brighten when I click on the logo elements, more people will do it and leave with a bad impression too.

My recommendation would be to brighten up the rest of the area and dim just the square elements which will also get brighter when the user hovers over it.

  1. Project's and experience section was too dark or dim. I would brighten it up on click or just keep the background brighter so that when the user clicks on the navbar links for this, it is brighter.

Hope this helps. You are on the right track in all ways. Good luck. :)

Some parts missing padding (checked on mobile), also the 'contact me', 'download cv' are not in the middle (i would give them total of 80% width). But overall its very nice for the first website. You can add animations to improve it :)

Bug report

Environment:

  • Firefox 85 on Windows
  • 1920x1080 resolution

Steps to reproduce:

  1. In top navigation bar, tap "PROJECTS".
  2. Tap "zNote", a "Znote project" dialog appears.
  3. In top navigation bar, tap "ABOUT".

Expected behavior: either "ABOUT" is unselectable, or the "Znote project" dialog disappears.
Actual behavior: the page scrolls, but the "Znote project" still stays on top.

For the first web-site it looks ok.
I recommend you to try reverse engineering. For example, you can take an application or ready web-site and just create copy of its frontend. It probably can give you valuable skills and good points to your CV.
Anyway, you're on the right way!

I really liked, this is awesome!
(You could do the animations of skills be more fast, I think that can be more cool)

In skills you wrote "asw" instead of aws haha. Making the skill section a bit more compact in mobile would be good too. Great color scheme!
