Fair enough, but i never said hire programmers based "only" on their code in github. The assumption here is that certain programmers do not do "technical" interviews well and they can therefore point to their code as proof of their technical competency. If their personality is broken well - that's a completely different problem and i don't know the solution to it. Either way, i think this particular strain of discussion is in someways orthogonal to the main point of the article.
