My website i want to be like a portfolio showcasing my work.

What can i do with javascript to showcase my skills. If you can think of any ideas, i can then learn them and implement them. I basically want a rich javascript website with a lot of functionality to wow potential employers.

Hey Matthew,

You might check out the jQuery Basics and Build an Interactive Website courses to get more familiar.

I recently purchased JavaScript and JQuery: Interactive Front-End Web Development if you want to check that out, too.

Try to implement responsiveness with CSS and as for javascript, theres a lot of cool things as far as having elements fade in as you scroll the page or creating a cool sticky header. Check out http://codepen.io/

You will find a lot of cool ideas and a lot of the things you can recycle and use yourself.

Hope that helped :)
