Hey everyone, I’ve started my journey through the front-end way in February, since then, my major problem was: Would I be able to get a job?

TL;DR: Keep here helping Campers and giving them feedback, you may don’t know, but this is very important to them, allows to continue. Thank you!!!

8 months later, 10 beautiful projects (I guess :blush:) on my Portfolio, a lot of studies, react, redux, npm, pure js, pure CSS and a lot of tools I decided to try, I sent 3 email to 3 companies, 2 feedbacks, I choose 1 and now I’m working remotely for a startup.

I have to thank you guys a lot, my first project was a Weather App, I was nothing, understanding nothing, with a lot of doubts, and the weather App was done as my worst project and with no feedbacks.

Then I was determined to try to be the best. My first cool project was the Quote Project. It was the first one I’ve posted here that you guys gave me good feedback and reported issues. I knew that you guys were worrying about every project here, from giving a simple “It’s cool” or “Could be better” to “Hey, you have this error and this, and you could do this to be better”. Every feedback gives power to the OP keep doing. With those, I decided to try to help FCC’s guy.

Helping other was great, I spent some time write some explanations such as
Right margin does not work and
How to make my logo and nav bar completely inline?

And I found that help is nice to learn!!!

Well, I here to say, thank you a lot, you helped me that I helped you and this just increase me as a person and as a developer. Please, Campers, keep on that way, I know the difference that you make and I want to spend more time here know, helping people to see and get what I’ve got, the power to continue.

Thanks again guys

See ya and keep coding.

We started around similar time. I’m hoping to start applying as soon as I’m done with few projects as well. Thanks for the inspiration

Pedro, just wanted to say your portfolio looks great. I looked at every one of your projects, amazed by your skill with CSS! Your love of design comes across clearly throughout your portfolio.

Well done, and congratulations!

Wow, your have cool portfolios. Forthe current me, more than half of your projects are complex. Beside the functions, the designs are also good.

I’m currently making two React apps. I have deployed one to Github. The app is about color components (RGBA) input and how they affect the output color. But I think the app is not complex enough and I don’t know how to design the app. Could anyone give some feedback?

The second app is not deployed yet. It is incremental game. I already coded the upgrade buttons and how it affects the money/currency. I want it to have at least have the functionality of save and load and when the user reloads the page it maintain the data. Maybe I have to learn Redux now.

mrfazry, I looked at your color picker app. Since you feel the app should be more complex, some important questions to answer are: how would you like to increase its complexity? What functionality can you add to it to make it more “interesting”?

If you need some ideas, you could look at other color-picking websites and web applications and try to replicate some of their color-picking features in your own way.

An immediate critique: the white text of each button can be “lost” when random light values of their respective color are applied within the button. The contrast isn’t strong enough for the white text to be seen clearly. You can either pull the text outside the buttons, or modify the button text color when the color is applied so that it can still be seen.

EDIT: the above critique applies only to the green button at high values when it isn’t highlighted by the mouse.

One thing I like about the app is that you show the “pure” value of each color (R, G, B) inside the button immediately upon clicking, so the user can see how each color “mixes” to create the output color.

On a final note: you’ll get a lot more feedback if you create your own thread for your project! :smile:

Hello @pedrobslisboa, I love your designs!

Just a question, where / how did you learn designs? Do you follow a course or article, or something that you studied to make your design better?
