I'm interested in improving my programming skills so I can get a programming job. I majored in a STEM subject as an undergrad (not CS) and used C++ for a research project. I'll have to look thru my harddrive to see if I still have the code for that, as I worked on it a few years ago. I have also worked on a few projects on my own. One of them is a simulation of a children's card game (like pokemon) and is 2000 lines of code. I've also completed a very simple poker game that takes 200 lines of code. However, the codes for these projects are messy and need to be cleaned up. The card game also functions, but I need to add more components to it to more realistically simulate the actual game
Would these be sufficient to load onto Github and increase my chances of getting a job now? Or, if my code looks sloppy enough, will it hurt my chances of getting a job?
