Often times, as beginning coders, we feel like we lack the ideas, motivation, or time to build new websites and showcase what we have learned. But building your own site is important for transferring what you have learned into your long-term memory, as well as building up your portfolio. Not to worry, this challenge is for you!
Are you a coding beginner? Are you looking for a meaningful challenge that will help you build a website with a clean, classic design and original, well-commented code? Are you short on time or motivation?
