The new portfolio is now up. I will be adding works to the dashboard throughout today and tomorrow. As well because of the nature of my previous work, following an adaptive methodology as opposed to purely responsive was the best decision for strategy on this portfolio. With that being said, the new portfolio is desktop ready, for the most part, still a lot of testing to go, but what the heck, it's an MVP. I will be adapting mobile today and tomorrow to ensure the best possible experience.
After reviewing the Google Cloud platform I have decided to integrate an instance for the new portfolio as scaling is becoming a requirement to my surprise. After complaints of slow load times it has become apparent that the need to scale and engage a larger audience is required. With balancing clients and working towards goals it is the portfolio that always suffers - but I have set aside another 10 hours this weekend to get this done. Exciting work with a MEAN stack and WebGL - a new frontier for a Creative Technologist.
A brand new portfolio of mine will be launched on May 15th, 2017. This will be the MVP BETA version to start - utilizing ThreeJS, Material Design Lite and GreenSock Animation Platform. Content will be added throughout the week with regular blog posts and insights thereafter.
Well, Front-end Friday is supposed to be smooth sailing. You would think that after all these years as a Creative Technologist I would recognize that it is always on Friday that servers decide to go down, computers mesmerize us with those spinning balls or worse, the rain intensifies. Well at least this week it started early and maybe will cease prior to the hockey game!
Either way it is Front-end Friday and I will plow through this, as I cannot sleep right tonight if I don't at least develop a new visually appealing project for myself today. After another satisfied client overseas this week, I hit the gym this morning and decided I will continue with a Three.js implementation with Bootstrap and Greensock to build a new works page by days end. I love WebGL. But, wait don't go looking for it just yet, I will post the link here when there is atleast the model up, just incase anyone has any interest in monitoring progress! After all, we all like to see "pretty pictures" do things.
Well the cubemap is working, thank you for Blender, NASA and Three.js. I will begin layering and adding a proxy with the Haversine formula to grab Equirectangular images from NASA based on location. Quite possibly after dinner! But not during the Penguins game!
