    I'm updating my current resume with information regarding my website I've built. I'm currently a Java developer and the majority of my professional experience highlights this, but I'd like to get involved in web development i.e. PHP, JavaScript, jQuery, etc.

    I have separated Professional Experience from Personal Portfolio. Normally, in my professional experience I would list with the most recent projects first. But here, I have listed items in reverse order so if someone is reading the list, they can get an idea as to how I went about developing the site. Is it ok to do it like that for this reason?

    (excuse the weird format here, it looks much better in word)


    PERSONAL PORTFOLIO
    --------------------------------
    www.matthewboston.com
    - Installation and configuration of LAMP for sandbox development and testing.
    - Design the MySQL database with normalization in mind and author queries for data insertion and retrieval.
    - Build a custom MVC framework in PHP to decouple the client-side requests from the server-side processing.
    - Design the layout using CSS and XHTML adhering to W3C validation standards. Testing compliance in a multitude of browsers on several platforms and an array of screen resolutions.
    - Usage of several user experience enhancements such as mod_rewrite for clean url’s, jQuery for AJAX form submissions, and JavaScript for form validation and DOM manipulation.


    Should I really be highlighting the major features of my site like this? Are there areas that could be removed/changed/added? Obviously, I'd like to highlight my development abilities using web technologies. Although I have no professional experience in the field, I hope this will showcase my abilities in becoming a potential web-developer.

    Thanks.

    I'm not sure why I put this in the web design sub-forum. Mods, you may move to the appropriate area if you believe it belongs somewhere else.
