We Create Identity End Exibition

Summary of the module expo of moldule 1, November 10, 2017

Yesterday we had the end exibition of the final project of module 1. Every group had to show their video off, we too. When watching the video's from the other groups we realized that our video was a bit too long, so that was to bad, but I think our video was still fine. Overall it was very intereresting to see what all the groups had made.

Peer review

Reviewing a fellow students website, October 17, 2017

The assingnment for webtechnology this week was to write a peer review of another sudends website. I reviewed the website of Kun Zhang. The first thing I noticed, was that the navigation bar was at the bottom. At first, I found it a bit weird, but after a while I realized it was actually fine. The navigation bar in the bottom makes the background picture stand out more. What I learned from this, is that the standard way of doing things, doesn't always have to be the best way.

For this review, I will review the blog page. It was created using wordpress. I know that because when I inspect the page, you can see that he uses themes. These wordpress themes make adding blogpost relatively easy. The wordpress theme he used was twentySeventeen. The page uses javascript to display these themes. This page doesn't use a gallery, since there are not a lot of pictures to display. For the picures on this page, he just uses the img tag in the p section. I can see however, that he did gave a somewhat personal touch to the page.

Website update

The current website progess, September 18, 2017

I think I already made quite some process in making my portfolio website. Its to bad that I don't have any pictures to put in my portfolio yet, but to show that I have a portfolio, I will use a placeholder image. Also, I may alter the color scheme a bit. I'm not completely satisfied yet.

GOGBOT visit

Visit of the GOGBOT festival in Enschede, September 12, 2017

Friyday afternoon I visited the GOGBOT festival. It was very intereresting to see what people had made, since some of the creations where made by first year creative technology students. It gave a good impression about the things we might be able to do at the end of the year.
