Discussion on: Don't waste your time on a portfolio website

Thanks a lot for the comment! From my experience, a GitHub portfolio or portfolio website is most important when you don't have professional experience yet and want to get your foot in the door. Once you have a couple of years of experience on the job (as you seem to have) I wouldn't bother about a portfolio website at all. A GitHub portfolio is nice to have but also not that necessary in your situation imo.

The approach you describe seems fine to me and is exactly what I do as well. Just apply with resume etc, do the coding challenges, and hopefully pass the interviews.
