Hey guys,

I am currently kinda stuck in tutorial hell, where i just kept doing Java tutorials from Derek Banas youtube channel.
My friend who is a proffesional Java programmer/developer, told me why won't you try to make something with the framework Vaadin ?

So i thought, ill make a portfolio website.
Vaadin has a ton of features but i don't think its a good choice to build my portfolio website with.
What i get from just reading the features etc, it's more focused on creating nice looking web apps.


The link above is kind of what i want to build eventually but im not sure what programming languages the he used to make it? Is it made with HTML,CSS,Javascript ?
Or can i make the same type of website by just using Vaadin ?

The bottom of the page says "Made with Bulma", which is a CSS framework.  Right click on his page and select "View page source" and I think you can get a good idea as to how that page functions.  
Vaadin is a different way to go about building a web page.  Rather than manipulating DOM components with CSS, one works with Java objects.  You can certainly use it to create a simple web page.  The catch is that to use Vaadin, you will have to deploy the "page" on a Java servlet container like Tomcat.  Using HTML and CSS simplifies deployment because you don't need a servlet container.  What server resources do you have access to?

My 2¢: if you are trying to create a portfolio site showing your coding skills, using Vaadin will only impress those who also use Vaadin.

3¢ opinion: Tools like Vaadin are pretty much considered fossils at this point in web app development.
Get out of my mind! Look! A tiny ad!
