My collection of portfolios

Posted on Apr 4, 2021

In this blog post, I’m going to list all the interesting portfolios and blogs I stumbled upon, I’ll also attempt to describe why I think they’re interesting.

Portfolios on the simpler side

Jordon Baade

You can consult his portfolio here.

I like this one because it’s simple yet effective, I particularly like the presentation of the CV page. The blog part is dead or not yet used with the last of two posts posted in 2018.

Lobo Tuerto

You can consult his portfolio here.

This one is interesting, I remember that I found it while searching for a specific problem I had with VueJs. The style of the website is pretty cool, he is also maintaining a blog in parallel with tutos for VueJs and Phoenix (very cool !).

Abdelrahman Awad

This one is the portfolio of the guy that develops vee-validate, the vueJs validation framework. Very nice style and presentation, not much to add, there are tutorials for GraphQL and Vue Composition API.

Jeremy Bouin

You can consult his portfolio here.

I really like this one, it’s by a french guy doing game development and competitive programming. His whole portfolio holds on one page but is very nicely made, there is a made by hand feel to it that gives it its charm.

No blog or posts.

Ktei

You can consult his portfolio here.

This is only a blog and it mainly contains infos about AWS and how to setup AWS.

2ality

You can consult his blog here.

This is a blog discussing the ECMA decisions and proposal, it is above the level of many, including me. I don’t even remember how I found it but it’s interesting and filled with hidden tips and tricks.

David Xiang

You can consult his portfolio here.

This portfolio discuss general developer life from the point of view of a New York developer. I feel like his life is very far from most of the developers in the world. Some subjects discussed still may resonate with some.

Mike Coutermarsh

You can consult his portfolio here.

This one is not very content rich, you may find some interesting information about ruby and deployment. The style is pretty clean tho.

Jan Raasch

You can consult his portfolio here.

You might recognize this one, its the same template as my own blog, Jan is the one who transformed the original Bear Blog into a hugo template.

He’s a Mathematician reconverted into a Freelance developer. The style is nothing special but the simplicity is just impressive.


More efforts in the looks than in content

Jaye Hernandez

This one is very simple but I like the style, very efficient. I don’t remember how I found this one, I wander a lot on the internets.

Mamboleo

You can consult his portfolio here.

This one is focused on style prototypes, 2D and 3D. It’s filled with cool demos, hard to use in real life but still nice work.

I feel like I’ve seen many websites with the same blocky css.

Anmol Singh

You can consult his portfolio here.

His website is very nicely designed, it takes a bit of time to load but is professional and modern. I found it because he made many things to track data in your GitHub profile.


Huge portfolios - life works

Flavio Copes

You can consult his portfolio here.

This dude is a madman, he posts new articles every.single.day solving problems or discussing different subjects. He’s a freelance since january 2019 and work on his portfolio to develop his personal brand.

Tania Rasca

You can consult her portfolio here.

What a brilliant portfolio, her skills are the real deal, and she shares her knowledge very nicely. I found her portfolio while searching how to deploy VueJs static websites with netlify but there is so much more.

The style is very clean.

Guru99

I’m not sure this one is a portfolio but you can access it here.

The amount of informations this website provide is tremendous. I found it while searching for ways to test my code and it seems that they provide practical tutorials. They also provide jenkins tutorials to deploy apps (useful for java apps).

The style isn’t anything extraordinary yet practical.

Samantha Ming

You can consult her portfolio here.

Another madman or madgirl, the sheer amount of work is palpable. She post a new article every week about a new “tidbit” about various tips in JS (VueJs often), HTML and CSS.

The UX of the site is very well made, I find it quite appealing and clear.

DerEuroMark

You can consult his blog here.

This is completely a blog not a portfolio. It’s main interests are code quality and cakePHP. I found this one because I use cakePHP for work and many of his posts are very informative. As far as I know it’s the only blog providing advanced tutorials for cakePHP.

Thanh Phu

You can consult his portfolio here.

This one is incredible, the subjects are numerous and in-depth. The style is clear and efficient.

Xah Lee

You can consult his portfolio here.

This one is a rabbit hole, there is so much to dig out. The style add to the general confusion, according to the main page there are 3700 articles on his website. That’s more than an article a day for ten years.

I think he’s a mathematician, that would explain the complexity of the work he produces.


Conclusion

This blog post was made too fast to produce really interesting remarks, still I hope I made you uncover cool ressources.

I may add more to this list in the future, I may add elements to the descriptions too.
