Website Portfolios, Science, Data and Neurodiversity

Portfolio website

Want to show-off your talents?

‘While many of you may have written some great code and are brilliantly talented, how do you stand out from the crowd and show off your skills when job hunting? Ric Barnes from CodeHub will be helping you set up and discuss how best to create a portfolio website. As ever we will be running this at our Workshop Wednesdays in conjunction with Women’s Tech Hub(Women’s Tech Hub ~ Bristol • Bristol or CodeHub Bristol • Bristol) and it’s all for free!

Whilst some of them are done by web-designers you can see there are other alternatives out there and web pages can be implemented by most people with rudimentary knowledge. Which is where Ric and the WebDev101 team are happy to help. If you want to put your wares on show but don’t know how to get started, pop along and have a chat.

Here are some examples that you can look through where people are using their websites to showcase their skills for work opportunities.

Fusion Processing

CavForth and MultiCAV project trials

We’d be lying if we said we don’t have an interest in this as one of us works for Fusion Processing who are delivering the tech for the projects. It’s a Bristol-based company so we thought we’d share the latest good news!

Driverless bus takes passengers across Forth Road Bridge in UK first

A group of passengers have become the first in the UK to travel on a full-size, self-driving bus on public roads.

Volunteers were taken on an autonomous Stagecoach single-decker over the Forth Road Bridge, near Edinburgh.

The trial was part of a project to have five self-driving buses run on a route between the capital and Fife.

Stagecoach, which is aiming to launch the full service in the spring, announced that the test had been successful.

For more details on the projects check out CAVForth and MultiCAV
