I have created a medium to guide others through code examples. I have been using collections of these ‘playbacks’ for the CS classes that I teach. Here are some examples: https://ourcodestories.com/markm208/Playlist/All (These are best viewed on a big screen) They are good for getting a peek inside the head of a developer who writes some code. My students seem to like them. I am wondering if people who hire sw devs would see any value from a potential candidate’s ‘code portfolio’ of playbacks? Here is a test portfolio I put together: https://ourcodestories.com/markm208/Playlist/3916 I am looking for feedback. I am mostly wondering if it makes sense for developers to create professional portfolios to show to potential employers. Here are some questions I have that readers might be able to help me with:
Is this any better than looking at a dev’s GitHub repos? Worse? Is there any value in seeing a candidate’s code this way from a hiring perspective? Would it take too much effort for a hiring team to work through a portfolio?
