Motorsport Calendar Site

Allows the user to view, download and save to your calendar all the major race dates of particular racing disciplines.

My first personal project, and portfolio piece.

Allowed me to firstly design my own site, using Photoshop and Illustrator. Then put into practice HTML and CSS skills I’ve been learning.

Also integrates a 3rd party Lightbox (for displaying the racing pages in an iframe), and Javascript for collating the data from CSV files, and displaying in tables, within the iframe pages.

Also utilises Formspree.io emailing systems to allow users to submit requests for new racing disciplines.

More features to be added in the future.

Personal Portfolio Site

Personal portfolio site listing current and on-going projects, information about me, and contact information.

Personally designed the site, using Photoshop and Adobe Colour CC, and Google Fonts.

Following some online training I then coded the site using Twitter Bootstrap, allowing for structured layout, responsive design, and utilizing a number of it's features.

The Contact form utilizes Formspree.io for email forwarding, but future plans will be implementing my own solution.

Further work for the site will including adding further project work, media queries, and personal blog.

ABOUT ME

Having learnt HTML & CSS, with expanding knowledge in Javascript, I’m now striving to progress into a career as a Front End Web Developer.

My previous experience and skillset has either focused around being creative, technical, or being involved in IT. Now I’m aiming to put a lot of my strong skills into practice, and my career.

I’ve a strong foundation involving Photoshop and Illustrator through utilising them for various projects, whether it’s been creating modified car images, to creating icons, and illustrations.

I’ve also used WordPress for a few projects, and successfully been able to tweak installed themes to better meet the need, and update content accordingly.

I’m hoping to progress further with PHP, Jquery and WordPress. I also plan on looking into Mobile App Development.....amongst other things.
