TBH, I've never known anyone with a portfolio do any better at getting interviews than someone without. As someone who has been doing a lot of interviewing over the last year, I can also say that having a portfolio really makes no difference as to whether you get hired. In a few cases the candidate's portfolio actually counted against them.

An active (and obviously uncurated) GitHub account with some interesting stuff going on is a far better indicator
