About Me

I am Panagiotis and I'm currently working in the automobile industry. In April 2020, I had the opportunity to join Codecademy and start a Web-Development course. All the projects are based on exercises during my studies and I'll be adding more as my course progresses.

Experience

Up until today, my experience in coding comes from working on my projects. However, I recently started working on other people's projects, which has given me valuable experience. You can read more about these projects below.

Elisan Antologia

Elisan Antologia is a blog for Elisa Stenberg, a young writer from Finland. She needed a blog to share her writings. Since the project wasn't that demanding, I suggested creating a one-page site styled with W3.CSS to display her documents.

On second thought, however, I made two separate pages since one page would have been too long to read if all of her documents were on the same page.

I worked a lot with handlebars.js in this project and I loved it. I used handlebars to display each of her documents on a second webpage. How to display each article on a different page using their id, was something that I hadn't tried before so, I am quite excited about doing it.

The site displays many photos. There are background photos on the body and for each article. Handling manually the photos became quickly hard so, I started to use the ImageKit CDN for an easier image transformation and conversion.

I learned more about handlebars and the use of an image-CDN. The site is light, loads fast and the Lighthouse results are good. Overall, I am satisfied with the result.

Revelation Football Club

This has been another interesting project, which is still in progress.

A football club located in Ghana wanted a site to present themselves. Building the site, I had to take into account the lack of infrastructure or/and the slow internet connection in Ghana. The site needs to load and run fast. I use the W3.CSS framework, which is very light and, I will try to use as native Javascript as possible.
One concern is that I use pictures in a webp format. Safari browser doesn't have good support and, since I don't know which Safari version the users will be using, I might have a problem with that but, it's an easy fix.

This is the first time that I am not working alone on a project. The client has an opinion about the state of the site and on the other side, I get pictures and guidelines from a designer, who works with them.
On this project, I had the chance to use a wireframe to show a basic structure for the site. I had read about it during my studies on Frond-End Development but I had never tried it before. I didn't use some computer program, I just made a pdf document.
This situation has taught me a lot about communication.
Overall, I am happy with the process and the progress of the site.
