About the Portfolio Project: Inspirational Homepage category

Welcome to the subcategory for the Inspirational Homepage Project. This portfolio project can be found in the following courses or paths:

Code Review: Why It’s Important

  • Better code quality – improve internal code quality and maintainability (readability, uniformity, understandability)
  • Finding defects – improve quality regarding external aspects, especially correctness, but also find performance problems, security vulnerabilities, injected malware, etc.
  • Learning/Knowledge transfer – help in transferring knowledge about the codebase, solution approaches, expectations regarding quality, etc; both to the reviewers as well as to the author
  • Increase sense of mutual responsibility – increase a sense of collective code ownership and solidarity
  • Finding better solutions – generate ideas for new and better solutions and ideas that transcend the specific code at hand.
  • Complying to QA guidelines – Code reviews are mandatory in some contexts, e.g., air traffic software

For more on why code reviews are important as well as how to give a code review and ask for one, check out this article.

Hey fellow coders! Here are the links to my completed project:

I had a lot of fun making this, and it was probably my favorite Codecademy project so far. It took me a little over a week to complete (putting in a few hours a day.) The most challenging parts were the beginning (figuring out where to start) and the end (had some issues with deployment, especially with the Netlify serverless functions I had to make in order to hide the API keys.) But all in all it went pretty smoothly.

Feedback is welcome!

Hello everyone!

Here is my completed project:

It was a great project! Implementing everything that I learned during the course was really a lot of fun!

For those of you who want to go the extra mile:

  • Implement a feature that asks the user for his/her current location.

Hi devs!

Sharing my solution here so maybe is helpful for you. It was a tough and challenging project but I could complete it :smiley: Something to take in account is that I used an Express server to make the requests to the APIs in order to hide my API keys and upload it to Heroku instead of Netlify.

Now I feel more confident with my knowledge in React/Redux so I strongly recommend you to tackle this project! :muscle:

Here the links:

Cheers and happy coding! :nerd_face:

Hi everyone!

I learned a little bit of React awhile back at university. I really did not feel confident in what I learned. I feel a little more confident now in my knowledge in React after taking this course, and it was a plus to learn about Redux. The course was difficult in that I had to rewrite what I learned before, but the process as a whole was very fun since I took my time with it. Below are the links to my repo and the link to the deployed web app.
