What is <Code>Digital?
CodeDigital is a portfolio website which I (Xavier Travers) will use to display different
projects that I feel are noteworthy. While it will house some fun games to mess around with, I also intend
to share it with potential employers as well. If you feel like I may be the right fit for your team, feel
free to read about me below.
Mainly you will see projects I have worked on in
p5js library which can be found at p5js.org. Sometimes I will also include other works I have produced (such as music).
A good starting point would be my Amazing Clock #1 project, an aesthetically pleasing redesign of a clock.
Another aim of mine is to publish "Weblog" posts on this website with topics ranging from a more in-depth look at a project I've worked on to a form of article about my findings (and perhaps even touching on my personal opinions at some points). To get started, my article on the transition of the website between two different platforms may prove an interesting read.

The Making of the Site
Oh my, was this website a total pain to create. I had to learn React from scratch, only to learn that I couldn't use it the way I wanted. Despite all that, I cherish the learning experience. I now have a good mid-level understanding of React, and have a website as proof. The source code can be viewed on github. Technically, it isn't even close to complete, yet. I will keep adding to it as I develop more fun stuff and continue to explore new concepts.
