Ethics Article to Read – Why Github is not your CV

The article Why Github is not your CV  by James Coglan brings up a lot of valid points about the ethics of recruiters using Github as a hiring tool. A lot of recruiters use github for hiring purposes thinking it will make their lives easier. The problem with that is the majority of people who use github are white males. Github only shows you the repositories that have the most “forks” which doesn’t necessarily shows you the complexity level of code a person can write. It is a really good read.
