How am I supposed to prove my programming skills if my work is all under NDA?

Generate open projects on git. Just make something that solves a problem or problems for you in your personal life or explore a concept even if it's something as basic as blackjack game or automatic random pizza generator and go from there. And contribute to other open projects, assuming you are a much more advanced programmer than I. 🙃


This is what I would do. Showcase your skills.

Do you use open source software at work? Contribute to some open source packages that you use, or create some that solve a problem for you at work and publish them.

I'm glad you asked this because I've been struggling with the same thing. The suggestions on here are great.

There are appts available in my home country. However I don’t have AP (did not apply due to valid H1b). Is there any risk to my GC application if I travel abroad and get a H1b stamp to re-enter the US?
