Ronan Connolly - Personal Website 2019

Feb 2019-Mar 2019

Goals

The goal of this project was to create a base template for future personal & company websites. In the process I wanted to learn React, Gatsby, and related technologies. And to have a personal website to showcase my skills, portfolio, and blog.

Technologies / Skills

ES2015 Functions, HTML5 Semantic Tags, React, GatsbyJS, Styled Components, GraphQL, Netlify, Custom Mail Server (Zoho Mail), Lets Encrypt SSL Cert

Journey

Because I created a template it took under two hours to get this personal site setup, an extra hour to deploy (with SSL), and another hour to setup an email server.
