Who Was Grace Hopper?

Skills Used

Visual Design, HTML, CSS, jQuery

The Project

I include this example in my portfolio because it demonstrates my HTML and CSS knowledge. It's important to speak a developer's language when working on a collaborative team, especially when the design is complex and could directly interfere with the usability of a solution.

I have experience helping out developers that may not be as CSS-savvy and finding plugins and other tools as suggestions for developing a solution.

Who Was Grace Hopper? was created as a fun side project one day after I read an article about Grace Hopper, realizing she certainly deserved an homage. Thinking it would be fun to rework her Wikipedia page, I used a few jQuery plugins and created a simple one page site.
