Portfolio

Assignment

  1. Choose a piece of code (or a set of tests) that you wrote this semester which illustrates something important that you learned. You should either copy it or provide a link to the GitHub repo and explanation of which files contain the code you are using as your portfolio example.  Describe the purpose of the code and what you learned from writing it. If you worked jointly with other people to complete this code, please also give them credit.

  2. In three or four moderate-length paragraphs, describe one technical skill you developed as part of your work this semester. 
  3. In three or four moderate-length paragraphs, describe one non-technical (aka “soft “) skill that you developed as part of your work this semester. 
  4. Include a link to your individual project’s GitHub repository and a link to your Heroku (or other hosting site) deployment.  
    1. This site should contain at least a couple of paragraphs on each page, appropriate to the heading/title/purpose of the page.  If you absolutely cannot think of something to write, use a lorem ipsum generator.
    2. Images should enhance and contribute to the purpose of the page, have descriptive “alt” tags, and not be the property of other individuals or corporations (the Rails image is allowed).  
    3. Each page should have a consistent header (and possibly a footer) and color scheme used throughout the site. 
    4. Write a paragraph explaining how this site showcases your skill development with Ruby on Rails. 
  5. On your GitHub repo and the Heroku app’s “about” page, write a summary of your answer for question #4.4.
