A B has a GitHub as a résumé question

- Hi Chris and Mike. Love the show.
- I've been programming as a hobby for several years, and it's high time for me to turn it into a job™.
- I have no degree (university and I didn't get along very well), and no working experience. So, as I see it, my only real way to prove my ability to potential employers is through GitHub.
- I took a crack at actually finishing and publishing a project of mine for the first time. I made a medium-sized program in Python with Qt framework. It got a couple hundred stars on GitHub upon release (it's my only real "success" metric) and I'm pretty satisfied with the whole endeavor.
- The question is how many of these projects do I need to confidently put a GitHub profile link as my "résumé" for the lowliest developer position? What do employers even look for in a résumé like that? What would be red flags or instant deal breakers? (I currently have no docs or tests, so that's probably one of them)
- Cheers, keep up the great show.
