I have an open source project that has gained a decent amount of attention and popularity, though it is far from well known. I believe it represents my skills quite nicely.

The thing is, it is associated with a well known, though not necessarily well respected website (hint: it is an anonymous imageboard known for obscene, lewd, childish, and immature content).

Should this be something I leave off my resume, or should I expect employers to look past the association and use it solely to judge my skills?


I think that there are clever ways that you can present your experience as a developer on the website without ever explicitly linking the website itself. If your interviewer asks you for more information you can easily have a conversation about the technical merit of your accomplishments, and even discuss what the application did, without ever giving them the URL.
