a short introduction: I’m Raphael, I started FCC a month ago with no prior knowledge about anything.
I spent the last week to build my personal website. Initially I wanted to postpone the portfolio and learn some more but I have a potential employer for a semibig project(for my at least) so I have to have something to show.
Firstly, please critique my website
Disclaimer: I am going to remove anything codepen and move all projects to github(pages) as soon as I reworked them. Please bear with it for now.
Also project descriptions and about section is more or less placeholder, but I’d like to get some first opinions and feedback.
Secondly, the job offer.
I have to make a website with database for an archeological excavation(for my local university). I dont have the exact details yet, but there’s about a 200 objects(findings is the appropriate word?) to be shown with images and info.
She also needs an authentication system for people to access all of the data of all the objects(about 1000).
This is a great opportunity to get my foot in the door, although challenging. But if I do a good job, I’m sure to get more work in the future.
My question: How to tackle this? Is node an ok choice?
Since the main feature is the database I’m wondering if php + relational DB would be more appropriate. Though I have zero experience with php. JS everything seems to be the way to go.
Disclaimer: I am willing to put in the time. I feel like with alot of reading and looking stuff up and trial and error I could make something that satisfies at least the requirements.
Anyone who read this far, thank you and good luck!
