    A lot of internships require a GitHub portfolio. Most of my software I end up selling as a commercial application, so the official source never goes public. How have you guys managed to build a GitHub portfolio without giving away all your hard work?

    Participate in some open source projects, fix some bugs and mail to the project creator he will give you commit access after you are able to convince him about your coding abilities.

    Do this for 4-5 projects who are interested in learning and you should have a good github profile.

    Why would you need to have commit access? I write code for OSS projects regularly and the last time I've got commit access to a repository was for JBoss around 2008. On Github I always do pull requests, they work like a charm.
