While waiting for my mobile application to gain some traction I've decided I wanted to go ahead and start moving into the freelancing section of the Internet. I have quite an arsenal of programming skills available, however my advertised specialties are going to be in web development. (NOTE: not design) I'm curious as to what you would want to see in a portfolio if you were looking to hire someone to do some work for you. I've thought about the following: An in-house blog software An in-house forum software Some stores utilizing different payment processors A live chat using PHP and NodeJS (Two different pages) Perhaps a simple multiplayer HTML5 game? I just don't have any idea what people are looking for, could anyone shed some light? I've never looked for someone else to do work for me, so I wouldn't know.
