Submitting a Code Sample to an Employer
Has anyone done this? I have a wonderfully complex algorithm that I wouldn't mind submitting. It's comprised of 11 source and header file and contains around 700 lines of code, plus a makefile. This is my most sophisticated from scratch algorithm, though it's very far from perfection. It would probably take me another week to polish it up, but I have doubts that even after polishing, that it will reach the state of perfection. Has anyone dealt with the issue of what type of code sample to submit to an employer? I'm trying to get into an interdisciplinary field, that would closely resemble computer science...you might say scientific programmer. While I feel like I'm a good scientific programmer, I'm not sure that I'm a good programmer.
