someone tell her about google web cache: http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:nataliecarras.co
how does some one accidentally delete an entire portfolio? better yet, why is the live stream of her face and not of the work in progress?
2/10 would not hire.
It is a big link under the video taking you to the WIP, http://nataliedeletedherportfolio.tumblr.com/
Also, no version control? Github isn't exactly a hidden gem anymore.
It's still a heavily development side of things though. I didn't discover GitHub until 2ish years out of design school, and it took me about 6 months to really figure out how I was supposed to use it after that. If she's still in school I doubt she knows about it.
It's a tumblr
Perhaps she's going for a personal touch.
If you're after the code why not view source or open the inspector?
I say give her a break. She's a student. Who hasn't made a mistake? When it comes to losing data, most of us have learned the hard way.
This little post is the game-winning shot in this thread, I think.
Plenty of valid points all around here, but they could do with this little bit of salt.
"Hire me and this could be your site deleted!!"
Exactly. This was posted 10 hours ago and she still has nothing to show for it. How long do you need to make a one-page site with four sections?
Not sure if design portfolio, or application to be invited to a party.
Everyone loves a parallax party ;)
They see me scrollin', they hatin'!
There's a parrallax party in my pants and everybody is invited!
It would definitely make me get in touch if I was hiring.
First rule, back up your stuff. Second rule, back up your back up of stuff.
Can someone explain to me how one deletes a website? I mean it has to be in at leas two places right? Even if she didn't have version control she at least had a local copy...
I even saved deleted CMS pages using google web cache once.
A lot of things could have happened when you figuring stuff out, I bricked my VPS up trying to figure out how it works. We all learn what to do and what not to do. Hyper Island's student does produce good work.
It seems to be Tumblr. I've not used it in a while but by the way those types of apps used to work, I'm guessing it has an input box somewhere where you can edit the template's CSS.
So, there's that.
Although, for me, coding is like fixing your hair, or put on some make-up; should happen in private so everyone think it's natural 8-)
Yes! But sometimes I like to show off my amazingly efficient workflow.
Accidentally deleting code? That's sloppy, and not something to be flapping your gums about. It's not a small thing to laugh off, it's a fundamental! Imagine if this happened in a production environment!
Yep, and this IS a production environment. Can't blame her for making lemonade though.
Probably better to do this than to just let the potential employers see a blank portfolio page. At least it shows her dedication, hard work and ability to turn a situation around.
Give her a break. Everybody has made mistakes before. She was creative and made it into something interesting.
Really cool idea! However, I wish the live stream showed her screen as well rather than just a girl talking to her computer haha
