    Hey DN!

    Today marks exactly 3 years since I first posted my portfolio to DN. To mark this occasion, I deleted it and replaced it with a new one!

    I started disliking the old site almost immediately, so I refreshed it for my most recent job search. As it stands, I don’t hate it quite yet.

    Tomorrow’s my first day at GitHub, so I’m stoked to start fresh. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the new site :)

    Your original portfolio post + the overview of how you got hired at DO were some of the things that made me want to be a part of this community.

    I'm surprised it's already been three years since. Congratulations and good luck at GitHub.

    I really enjoyed the personality of it and the simple walkthrough of your work. It put a smile on my face before I ingested any coffee so good job, man!

    I am sad you did not optimize images.

      Hey, you're totally right!

      I'm using a generator on jekyll to output a srcset and serve different sized images for various breakpoints, but I never thought to further optimize those outputted images.

      On my todo list for next week :)

    Joel, love the writing behind the features you've worked on. The detailed breakdowns are fantastic and help show why you made decisions.

    Good luck with the new gig!

    I love it, make me smile a lot. And these buttons, oh god. That's right. I'm feeling old.

    Great refresh! Design and content are both great. I really like the "visited" detail on the links under each job.
