My experience rebuilding my portfolio

Turns out that rebuilding your personal website can be a lot of work, who would have thought? 😆

Therefore, I'm very happy to announce that this is the second version of my portfolio! Even though the design didn't change much, the technologies I used did. The first version of marucodes.com was built using plain HTML & CSS and now it uses Next.js (a React.js framework) to render the pages and Sanity (a very cool headless CMS) to handle the content.

For the styling I used Sass and finally, I used Netlify to deploy it, as well as their awesome form feature for the contact section.

When I first started to learn about web development all the new terms were very overwhelming but here I am, talking about frameworks and headless CMS's, pretty cool, right?

I decided to rebuild it because it seemed like the perfect opportunity to combine all the new things I've learned and it really was. It helped me to see how much I've improved.

For this new version, I really wanted to have some sort of "journal", a space where I can share some of my thoughts on what I'm learning and building so hopefully this is just the beginning.
