Publish an online portfolio (for free!)

1. Code it up
A basic website consists of an HTML, CSS, and Javascript file.

  • HTML: content (e.g. text, images, links)
  • CSS: style (e.g. color, sizing, spacing)
  • Javascript: interaction (e.g. buttons, forms, animations)

Feel free to use your own .html, .css, and .js file. If not, open a text editor (e.g. VSCode) on your computer, paste in Hello World, and save the file as index.html.

Opening the .html file will actually show your website in a browser.

2. Host the code
Now we store those files on the internet using a hosting service (e.g. Github).

Create a new repository on Github named <user>.github.io.

Upload your files and click Commit changes.

3. Visit your website
Now head over to <user>.github.io to see your site!
