My question is about a) an interview which I would place on "Workplace" and b) also uses many programming related terms, which would best suit "Stackoverflow".
The question background is like this (I did not find a suitable title yet):
- One of my employees is working on source code of a useful application. He's a beginner, so he doesn't write the best code.
- The application is not related to the business of our company, so I take the initiative of making the code open source, so that anyone can benefit from it.
- a) The employee refuses to create a GitHub repository, because it might have negative impact on his future career or b) the employee has left the company and can no longer create a GitHub repository.
- Since I have taken the initiative of making it open source, I become responsible to actually make it happen. However, I have no time to clean up everything in the code.
The question to find a site for: Would my initiative of making a useful application open source have positive impact in an interview or negative impact because the code quality is low? Consider that the initial commit is made by me.
Since the programming related amount is quite high, I wonder whether "Workplace" is the really the correct place to get a suitable answer.
Is there a SE site to ask this question?
