Your GitHub Portfolio
Curate your code and show the world how great you are

This weekend project of mine is designed to help developers showcase their work. It's a place to curate your code (open source or not), and provide potential employers an opportunity to see how you think, how you work, the context of your code, and why you might be a good fit for their company.
