Online PortfolioSpring 2003
Background:This was assigned in Yolanda Reimer's CS 415E: Computer Ethics and Society. The CS department is looking for a way to tell if its students are learning enough of what they should be learning. Reimer's solution to this problem was an online portfolio.
The Problem:The assignment was to create an online portfolio that showcases some projects that I have done over the course of my career as a CS student at the University of Montana.
The Solution:I started out thinking I would create the website in Dreamweaver, but I soon found out that Dreamweaver was overkill and that it would save me some time (and teach me something) if I just used a text editor.
I started by finding a University of Montana logo and using it to design a header to the webpage. (All webpages on the University of Montana computers must have the UM logo on it.) From there, I decided to go with a rather simple layout design because I'm not that great at creating graphics.
Here is a photo of what I came up with.
Here is the actual website
What I Learned:Even though I learned a little html in the Vote Montana website, I learned a considerable bit more on this project. This is the first website that I alone have completely coded. It also helped remind me of some old projects that I never quite finished.
If I could do it over, I would have made more backups of all of my programs. The hardest part of this was finding projects to put on the website because of technical difficulties, both my own and the CS department's.
