How your first project teaches you a lot!!
3 min read
For a Computer Science student, the projects are very important. They give you a lot of experience and teach you many important things which you may not learn in theory. Projects are a practical way to boost your knowledge and many projects also help society to solve the problem.
I did have some layouts and stuff in my mind but those were not fixed. I started by making a home page that will include my photo, a cool navbar, a header text, and a small animation text showing my interests and future plans.
So, As I was making my home page, I was planning to make 4 other pages showing my skills, about, contact, etc. I divided my work page-wise by making one page daily and in the end connecting them through the nav bar.
After making all the pages, one thing I was stuck at was how to connect them. And it was by using commands ‘. / ‘ and ‘ . . / ‘. I connected all of my pages.
Now, my website is ready and what I need is for my website to be online. So, I searched and found out about Netlify. It is a platform where you can make your website online.
I had my own domain and so I published my website there and added the domain which I own. Now, my website is online.
Initially, I made my website only for desktops but I wanted to have it on mobile devices also. So, I learned about media queries. Media queries help you to add personalized CSS for specific widths.
One, thing which is very important for a developer is its GitHub profile. So, I have added all of my code to the GitHub repository.
Projects help you learn a lot. I was not confident with my frontend skills but making it helped me gain a lot of confidence and I have also added a project to my portfolio. This project also taught me how to host a website, how to maintain your GitHub profile, and about HTML, and CSS, in CSS I learned about media queries which I always used to wonder about.
I know my website isn’t perfect and has a lot of faults but I really put my effort and hard work into making it and which I am proud of.
