About the Creation of this Website

After attending a four-day training course on AngularJS (version 1), I decided it was time to completely overhaul my portfolio website which I first started in 2008. To replace the server side includes (to stop having repeated code) I used Angular's partials. I have a history of over 70 contracts which I want visitors to see but not cause the web page to be unnecessarily delayed in plotting. So I decided to plot just the first four on page load and then use infiniteScroll (an AngularJS plugin) to keep adding more contracts as the user scrolls down to the bottom of the page.

April 2018 update - added the small animation library AOS (Animate on Scroll) https://github.com/michalsnik/aos. There are a multitude of animation styles and I apply these in a random manner to each contract to show off the variety of animation styles.
