Wow… Who would’ve thought copying someone would have some positive things to learn? Seriously!
Today, I took up a challenge to copy a designer’s portfolio that I liked just for practice. By examining their code and mimicking their best practices, I learned a few things:
- Use SVG! I heard this before, but rarely seen it when looking at HTML code.
- White space is your friend
- Basic CSS psuedo selectors FTW!
- Bootstrap’s .container class is "required". Been using Bootstrap for 3-4 years nows and never knew about that class *facepalm*
Most of the lessons learned were simply reminders from the past. But, if repeat lessons were pointless, people would stop going to church! 😛
