+1 on this. Well done, Jure, and congrats! I just hired a fresh-from-bootcamp coder myself, mostly on the basis of the strength of the portfolio site that they took the intiative to put together. And you're exactly right about "giving the interviewer a chance to talk about the decisions I made while making my website" - that's mostly what we talked about during our early interview, and it gave me a chance to see what this candidate could do.

Thank you for your kind words, Andrew, and thank you for giving someone without a formal education a chance! People like you are really bringing the change!
