Hi, I'm Ryan Furrer. I'm a Web Developer looking for my first job in the field.
Web Development has become a passion of mine only recently, though I have always been interested in it. When I am not working or coding I like to read, arrange music, and more.
Below are a few of my projects built with various technologies, but all rooted in being modern, accessible, and using the best practices known to me at the time of building. Each project contains a link to the live site and code, which is hosted on Netlify and GitHub, respectively. These projects feature the following technologies and tools:
The Ryan Furrer Blog
This is my third iteration of my personal blog, and hopefully my last for a while. I previously called my blog "Coding Catchup" but in an effort to build a personal brand and have more synergy between my portfolio, newsletter, and blog, I've renamed it.
I reserached many options for building my own blog as I wanted the blog site to closely resemble my portfolio and settled on Stackbit for various reasons.
I'll be writing a blog post on this further and will update when I do, but for now you can check out the site below and if you'd like to subscribe to my newsletter to know when future posts are published I'd love to have you join!
When I designed and created this site I wanted a simple and clean place to call home on the internet which started with a color palette I liked and ran with it.
I wrote all about my process behind developing this site which you can read over on my blog.
When I got engaged in December 2019 I just knew I had to create my own wedding website rather than using an online service like minted weddings.
I built this site with HTML and SCSS but chose to use Cloudinary as a CDN for the pictures as there are a good amount of them and I want the site as performant as possible. This was my first time using a CDN and thankfully the documentation made it simple enough to get up and running for my use-case of responsive images.
