Had an interview this morning..
Interviewer - have you used github?
Me - yes
Intw - so, you have a profile on github?
Me - yes (** in mind, I don't think github will allow me without that **)

Intw - how many commits have you done?
Me - ** what kinda qust is this ** well,... Yeah... Umm.. A lot! 🙄

Intw - how much is a lot for you?
Me - umm... Well... A lot lot... So many... I mean a lot of... **Long pause** .... You see, I'm a commitment type of guy. ** Wtf did i just say?**

Intw - Whattt!! Then he laughed.

... and I used to think that my days of embarrassing interviews are over. I'm not going to that company doesn't matter what happens. Shitt 😐

    I have major issues with companies who make any judgement of your ability or suitability based on your GitHub activity.

    @CrankyOldDev yup immediate big red flag, they probably also judge how well you write software based on number of lines written

    For me, it says more that they are looking for someone who will spend lots of time outside of working hours... well, working (for nothing). They're looking for a rock star.

    But what if I prefer gitlab?

    What is the right answer? I make 1,000 commits a day, because I keep making bugs that need fixing and I don't test my work correctly?

    @DjWawa what if you prefer Bitbucket ?

    he's probing to see what you consider to be a lot of work so he can prepare you for the slave ship hours you would be putting in.

    TLDR he's lubing your anus before he rams it in

    That company will buy the company you decide to work at next. Watch.

    I'm a commitment type of guy.. you trolled interviewer :D :D seriously that is not a type of question he should be asking, but he probably wanted to know how frequently you commit code.
