Personal Portfolio Website
Design a personal website to display my engineering portfolio and also to show companies for job hunting purposes.
Using python, because I was the most familiar with python at the time, I looked into technologies that I could use to assist me in building my website. Django was the web framework that I chose to use because it is python- based and open- source, which really helped me alot later on when I was debugging errors.
Implementation & Prototyping:
I used Git and Github for my version control and then for deployment I used Heroku. I chose Heroku because there was a free tier that allowed me to have a live product.
Halfway through this project I realized that I could just host a static website without the need of Django. I was able to just use Amazon Web Services or Heroku and simply use my html pages directly.
Because of the simplicity of it, I scrapped the old website and used only html. This is what you are currently seeing.
Because i built out my entire website originally in django and python, and had it deployed but only recently changed it, I decided to keep this post.
