Is it smart to release a small project as free and open-source to display my abilities as a programmer.
I don't mean that in a "Hey, look at me, I'm awesome!" way.
I mean it in a "This is the quality of work you can expect out of me." way.
- Aside from my full-time job, it takes 5-10hrs/week
- 1st Beta release complete within 1 month
- Product is a tool for my exact peer-base
- Product does not have ability to scale
- Could only charge ~$5/month/license
