I have been thinking of making a portfolio website for myself for some time (even before I joined Train2Game), but I never really had much I could put onto a portfolio anyway. But with this course, I will be able to put some stuff onto one.
But the question I often think (and I'm guessing a lot of others ask this too) is, "How do I make my own portfolio website?"
Today, I can across a few sites that look to be very useful in answering this question. Some of these sites give you tips and suggestions, and some give you a more 'hands-on' guide to making one. The links can be found below.
