The company I work for writes a software product that is used by other businesses rather than the general public. In order to log into the web app, a paid account with multiple users is required. It's nothing secret, there's just nothing free that Joe Schmoe can sign up for and take a look at, nor is there a public demo account they could try out.
I need to put together a portfolio of work I've done to use when applying to other jobs. What can I put in my portfolio which won't get me in trouble with my current employer and will showcase my programming and software design skills?
- Can I include sections of code I've written or improved?
- Should I include screenshots of web pages I've worked on?
- Can I included rendered html of web pages I've worked on?
- What sort of things should I try to include in a programming portfolio in general?
I'm interested both in what I can safely include without asking permission, and what I ought to include if I'm able and allowed to.
