As I was looking for older versions of my personal website, I came across my CodePen account. I haven’t used it much since I stopped using FreeCodeCamp, but it’s really interesting to look back on what I’ve worked on.
While I was doing FreeCodeCamp, I used CodePen to design the front end projects. I made
- Personal Websites (more on that later)
- Quote Generator (see the revisit on Quote Generator).
- A tribute to Edjar Dijkstra
- A weather checking webpage (no longer works) and
- A Wikipedia Search Engine
I really pushed myself into making these projects. Still, just looking at all the pens out there, I have a lot to learn.
There are lots of these. I did a lot of experimentation and given how this website looks right now, I guess this is my style1 even after so many website redesigns.
I also had a phase of trying out really basic websites in an attempt to look cool. After all, look at Bjarne Stroustrup’s website and he created C++. I’ll write more on my personal websites in another post.
While I was still working in the library, I was responsible for maintaining their website. At times, I needed to try out some code but I was too lazy to set things up properly. CodePen came in handy a few times then. I used it to make the hours script for the library and fixing the carusel which shows new library titles.
This isn’t in line with the git series since these projects are on CodePen rather than GitHub, but I did feel the need to mention it. I’m a bit sad that I don’t use it as much, but it will always be a handy resource as far as I’m concerned.
