Cara Michele Ryan's Portfolio
This is the repo for my portfolio site. When my 12 week experience in the inaugural Omaha Code School class was coming to a close, I wanted to redo my portfolio site completely to showcase all my new work and skills (before OCS, all I knew was basic HTML and CSS).
My portfolio site is built using the Jekyll framework. Omaha Code School primarily focuses on how to build Rails applications, but this site is simple enough that it only needs HTML, CSS, and JS. We spent about half a day learning Jekyll, and I decided I wanted to use my portfolio site to teach myself more about Jekyll since it seemed light-weight and easy to use.
The clock itself is an SVG that I drew in Adobe Illustrator CC. Choosing an SVG over a simple JPG/PNG made it easier to manipulate the moving hands and the afore mentioned surprise. You can check out the code in _includes/clock.html.
I used Lightbox to display the work in my portfolio. Lightbox is incredibly easy to add to your site, and I highly recommend it.
