So I have been applying left and right to jobs. I have had 4 calls in the past week. 3 of those 4 calls were consulting firms that train you for one month to three months max without pay and then try to sell you to there clients. The reviews were horrible for all three places. The 4th call was from a company in Kansas and I didn't meet their certain criteria for employment. So I am currently having someone look over my resume. I noticed that my portfolio is a little skimpy. I have learned all the above technologies but most of the projects I did through self learning were relatively small and I thought not worth keeping. My portfolio is http://grimlek.github.io I am curious to what projects you would do in your spare time that would make you say wow he was able to develop that as an entry level developer. I would like to try to get into open source but I find it intimidating and hard to get into as an entry level developer. Any suggestions? This may need a new thread.
I had it linked to the README.md of the repository. I just switched it to the actual repository.

I'd just do an HTML table. That way you can say the project name/link, a brief description and why someone might click on it (the tech.) This lets you reflect what you are most proud of *and* capture the breadth of your knowledge. The later I don't see right now.
