Program Portfolio

In developer/IT meetups, I always seem to hear people talk about the importance of developers having a portfolio — something that can showcase their accomplishments in a quick and easy to understand format.

I largely develop highly-specialized in-house apps. It isn’t like there’s much in the way of ‘glamour shots’ for these apps that would really show a whole lot. Similarly, my work on public-facing websites and mobile apps is generally behind-the-scenes on the backend.

Rather than trying to get permission to use code snippets from any of these applications or database logic, maybe I need to find some interesting open source projects to work on… At least that would be a decent start, I think…
