My Resume Website

Recently, I got tired of trying to explain to non CS people why my Computer Architecture classes did not teach me web development, so I started teaching myself web development, and this seemed as good a place as any to start.

When I think about it, I have always wanted my own website to catalog my projects and serve as a digital resume, and I am not sure why I didn't have one yet. That's why, to learn html and css for my first real website, I decided to try to make one. I think I am a pretty good first client because I have really high expectations, and no ability to sue if those expectations aren't met. In other words, its an optimal learning environment.

While working on this website, I learned:
  • How to use CSS grid to lay out web pages in ways that look good.
  • How to use github pages
  • How to set up domain forwarding
  • How to implement Responsive Web Design
These skills have already allowed me to better support my friends in JADE and my team in Karen Nakamura's Disability Lab
