I just graduated back in December with a Computer Science degree and have been looking for application developer types job. I have come across some on job sites that require you to submit sample code with your resume. Does anybody have any experience with this and recommend any certain type of program? The most recent one I have come across was looking for a PHP developer. Would it be a good idea to create a "fake" website with some simple functions and maybe some MySQL queries? I also found one wanting some C# code, and I have no idea on what type of code to use for that.

The coding request is obviously to test your knowledge in a certain field. If you are strong in php, yes, create a "dummy" site with dummy MySql connections etc. It will only strenghten your application, especially if you include some advanced functions.
