If you view the sites source code you will find that I have included meta data & structured data on each page for optimised search results. I have also included Google Analytics to monitor performance and guide future improvements.
I began coding the project to expand and showcase my Web Development skill set. It is a work in progress and I welcome all constructive criticism on the sites user experience, design, aesthetic and code. Feel free to poke around the sites source code and get in touch with any improvement suggestions, pointers or tips.
Using SWAPI (The Star Wars API) I created a "Star Wars Character Profile's" page that retrieves information on 85 Star Wars characters. I added a button that returns the results translated into Wookiee.
This project was my first experiment with AJAX, sending HTTP requests to 3rd party servers and parsing JSON responses.

I used Chart.JS to help display the results of tosses in graphical form using the canvas element.
I also used a debounce function to limit the rate at which the toss function can be called to once every half a second.

On this page I used jQuery & AJAX to send HTTP get requests to api.open-notify.org, displaying How Many People Are In Space, their names and space craft on a star themed page.
I also used the setTimeout method, of the HTML DOM Window Object, to call the function that requests the ISS latitude and longitude data every 5 seconds.

I also attend other monthly tech meetups in the local area.
Last year in my free time I began coding a personal side project EverythingChester.co.uk to expand and showcase my front end web development skills as well as advance my SEO, digital marketing and holistic online knowledge.
