|From 2001 to 2008, I was the creator and frequently only developer on a relatively popular open source project. It was one of the first pieces of real software I'd written, and was the first thing I ever released as open source. It's been downloaded about a million times and is still running on many sites today.|
The thing is I really, really hate the code, and it's in PHP (these are only partly related). There are parts of it I'm downright ashamed of. My question is, should I put it on my resume and/or my GitHub account? Even if I'm applying for a software job that won't be using PHP?
