This portfolio website is a static website created with Gatsby and Contentful, with the goal of sharing all of the amazing projects I get to work on and what I learned along the way.
One of the most difficult parts of creating this website was the design. Mainly because I had next to no experience creating designs so creating an interesting yet professional website did not come easy. With the use of the internet and advice of my colleague's, I can safely say that I am quite happy with the result.
Used technologies

Contentful is a cloud-based, API-first Content Management System (CMS) solution that empowers retailers and other enterprises to manage their content in proactive and dynamic ways.

Gatsby is a blazing fast modern site generator for React which enables the power of the latest web technologies, including React.js, Webpack, modern Javascript and CSS and more.

It lets you choose data from all kinds of sources, from headless CMSs to APIs. It is internet scalable, easily deployable and future-proof!

React is a JavaScript library build for creating your own user interfaces.

It uses declarative views which makes it painless to create interactive UIs efficiently and simple.

React promotes a component-based structure which improves testability and reusability.

A progressive web application (PWA), is a type of application, delivered through the web, built with common web technologies with an intent to work on any platform that uses a standard-compliant browser.

It enables offline functionality, push notifications, device hardware access and native application experiences without the need of a digital distribution system like Apple App Store or Google Play.

GraphQL is a query language for your API, and a server-side runtime for executing queries by using a type system you define for your data. GraphQL isn't tied to any specific database or storage engine and is instead backed by your existing code and data.
