frontend development

Currently my strength. I like the idea of using code to solve problems and build something

    Languages I speak:
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JS
    • Libraries / frameworks that I use:
  • React
  • Gatsby
  • backend development

    Most of my backend skills are MERN stack related, as I've been learning so much on the frontend, and don't want to be a jack of all trades, master of none

      I can program my backend with:
  • NodeJS
  • ExpressJS
  • PHP (with WordPress)
    • Databases I use:
  • MongoDB
  • Deployment

    Have experimented with a few deployment environments

      Deployment environments I use:
  • Netlify
  • Heroku
  • Firebase
  • featured projects

    khenny c photography project

    The client of this photography site specifically requested WordPress.

    For this site, I created a WordPress theme with the requested styling, then incorporated a contact form using Formspree for it's backend. After that, I configured the other pages so all the owner has to do is create a WordPress post for each gallery, set the gallery's main image as a featured image, and upload to the content section all the images he wants displayed in the gallery's slider, and set the appropriate categories.

    All galleries of the 'featured' category will show on the home page, whereas galleries with a 'fitness' and/or 'fashion' category will show on the appropriate page.

    raw muscle project

    I initially made this portfolio in the process of learning React, nodeJS and Heroku. Please find the first project's site here and the repo here.

    After learning Gatsby, I decided to make a new version of this project using what I've since learned in terms of producing more efficient code, and applying the benefits of static site generators. I was also interested in comparing GTmetrix and Lighthouse results between the site's versions, mainly to see the page speed difference from using Gatsby Image's image optimization plugin.
