I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to our community of amazing developers. For some time, I have been struggling to find a way to showcase the awesomeness of someone as all traditional means seemed to failed.
The traditional means like a CV was good only on showing past work experiences and even there it's amazingly difficult to showcase any depthness of knowledge or character and trying at the same time to keep the 2-pages quota, while also talking about your education or extra information that try to show you are also human and not a robot.
Networks like Linked In seemed to provide a better solution. More interactive, allowing linking to projects or companies made the traditional CV slightly better. The addition of endorsements came in as a way for also helping you to show certain skills you have, but I personally feel it ended up being like the LIKE button. Eveyone hits it in hope you are gonna hit it back. And again, it's all about your work experience. Not to say it's not important, but it's not YOU. It's only a small fraction of you.
I introduce you, Awesome Devs. A different approach in showcasing your self, focusing on what makes someone trully awesome. His uniqueness, her character, their experiences and things that do not stay in the 4 walls of a working environment. If you would like to read more about what started all this, read an article I wrote in the early days of Awesome Devs
