#### Course Description
Whether you want to apply for a job or a scholarship, a portfolio is your best representative!
In this nanodegree, I will walk you through the steps of setting up a static website which will be your first business card. Using a couple of open source tools, some stunning pictures, and need-to-know facts will help you be seen and heard by future prospects.
In this course, we’ll help you create a portfolio, publish it online, and get some constructive feedback. By the end of this nanodegree, you will have a clear vision of the existing available tools and what needs to be done to have an online presence. Ready for the challenge?
