Spice up your personal site with jQuery

This article first appeared in issue 227 of .net magazine – the world's best-selling magazine for web designers and developers.

When looking at personal sites of web designers and developers, you’ll often see a lot of unique (and sometimes insane) concepts and designs that you’d never see on any ‘real world’ website. Personal sites tend to be the one area where people allow themselves to truly unleash their creativity. This often goes a long way in showing both your own personality, and the ability to think a little differently from the herd.

We’re going to use one of my own plug-ins, jQuery Scroll Path, as a tool to transform a conventional site layout into something that resembles an interactive presentation. The sections of the page will be spread out and rotated across a two-dimensional plane, and bound together with a path that the browser window follows when the user scrolls the page.
