Project Summary

JessicaGAbejar.com is my personal website, built using Gatsby.js with React.js, GraphQL, and Sass/SCSS. It highlights all my major interests across various disciplines including dance, wellness, events, writing, and tech.

Features include fast site performance, reusable components and design elements, optimized images, content from multiple data sources, SEO, and offline support.

To see how I built this website in detail from design to development and takeaways, take a look at the process write-up for JessicaGAbejar.com.

This project is hosted on Netlify.

Updates Summary

This is a summary of major site updates:

  • 6/17/2019: Tech write-ups all added. Images fixed by uploading directly to Netlify instead of using the build command.
  • 6/6/2019: First deployment. Site includes all main pages (home, dance, wellness, events, writing, tech, and about) and page templates for tech spotlight & project created.
