Rebuild of My Portfolio with Next.js

Hello everyone! I'm excited to announce that I'm starting the rebuild of my portfolio using Next.js. This is a project that I've been wanting to tackle for a while now, and I'm finally ready to dive in.

Why Next.js?

I chose Next.js as my framework of choice for a few reasons. First, it's built on top of React, which I'm already familiar with. Second, it's great for SEO and performance out of the box. And third, it has a great ecosystem of plugins and tools that I can use to build out my portfolio.

What's in Store?

I'm planning on using a few different technologies to build out my portfolio. Here's a quick rundown:

StorybookAs a developer I think it's important to have a design system in place. I'll be using Storybook to build out my components and document my design system.
ContentlayerWritting blogs like this one is a big part of my portfolio. I'll be using Contentlayer to manage my blog posts and projects.
D3.jsI'm a big fan of data visualization, so I'll be using D3.js to create some interactive charts and graphs.
React-Three-FiberAs i'm learning to use Three.js to also create 3D visualization, I'll be using React-Three-Fiber to create some interactive 3D scenes.
Tailwind CSSI'm a big fan of Tailwind CSS and will be using it to style my portfolio.

Join Me on the Journey

I'll be documenting my progress as I go, so be sure to check back for updates. I'm excited to share my journey with you all and hope that it inspires you to tackle your own projects.

Thanks for reading, and I'll see you in the next update!
