TL;DR Do y’all mix personal & professional work (in particular, work for multiple companies) on single GitHub accounts?
I have had a personal GitHub account for several years due to FIRST stuff, and will occasionally put personal projects onto it. I have a personal email attached to it.
Recently, I was invited to join my company’s GitHub Organization. I made a separate account with my work email address and plan to use it for accessing work content. It’s not clear that I needed to make a company account, and GitHub is structured so that I probably could have continued to use my personal account to access new work organization content.
If I did… Would work projects start showing up on my personal profile page in some way? Seems like a massive privacy/trade-secrets vulnerability??
What’s typical “netiquette” here? What have y’all done?
Anyone using one github account to rule them all: do you also share hardware between work/play/home projects, or “bring your own device” to work?
I do some of my FIRST volunteering on the company laptop, but I have other projects I keep exclusively on personal equipment for Reasons. My company only does BYOD phones.
Pivoting the question a little - has anyone actually recruited through GitHub personal profile pages & shared or public projects?
I can see GitHub trying to make recruiting a Thing for revenue, but is that actually something users do or experience?
Looking good for Recruiting seems like a strong incentive to use a single account across companies, regardless of the implicit IP danger, in order to keep an active/complete profile…
