Ok guys thank you very much for your replies!
@ Tom Sloper: I think you got me wrong. But this is my fault. I didn't make it clear enough. I did not assume that programmers are dying out and that is the reason I do not get a job. It should have been another point/question in my post. I am pretty aware of what I am capable of.
One point I find very interesting, the Portfolio. What do you guys think what is it about such a portfolio that could convince a AAA (or not) developer to hire a person? Note here I am only talking about the portfolio not the social skills. Let's say I want to apply for a 3D-programmer job. Things I can think of:
- Clean code/coding technique.
- Visible understanding of basic concepts in 3D programming.
- A good code documentation.
- Something like project plan?
- Maybe how you create and implement concepts?
What else should I be aware of when creating such a portfolio? Would you completely agree with this article or is he/she missing something?
