Looking to launch a career in tech? If so, you’ll need a good technical portfolio.
A technical portfolio supplements your resume during the hiring process and helps showcase your skills to recruiters and hiring managers. It also gives you a chance to tell them a little more about yourself with information that may not have a natural place in your resume. More importantly, your portfolio provides tangible evidence that you’ve got the skills needed to do the job.

Along with your contact info, your technical portfolio should also include links to projects you’ve created in the past and details about the programming languages, frameworks, and other technologies you used to build them. And while you could always find a portfolio template online, creating one from scratch further demonstrates your technical (and creative) skills — which is a nice touch for any aspiring developer.

This livestream follows up on our last video, in which we showed you how to create a portfolio page with HTML and CSS. Now, Codecademy Senior Curriculum Developer Ben Stone will show you how to make your portfolio even better by using JavaScript to allow interactivity.

  1. I entirely hand typed everything. Proofed over video and then actual code source from website-link given. As well as final toss of the towel, copy and paste, with still an error present in my console debug. My Script-Java file seems to have an error on code line 16. Console message: "Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read properties of null (reading 'addEventListener')"

    Does anybody have a solution or getting this error at all?
