This may be a bit unique, in that it's not a coding problem, but it's nevertheless a scenario where input and expertise would be valued.
I've had a few interviews over the last few months and it's been a good situation in that I'm currently under contract so I'm not in a desperate frame of mind when I go in to be considered.
Without exception, the interviews have gone very well. In some instances, I left thinking, based on the conversation, that the gig was mine to lose.
But I've had several situations where they would come back and say that I wasn't a good fit and they would reference my Code Samples as being a point of concern.
I realize that there are "Human Resources" type responses that often come across as vague, but I wanted to get some folks to look at what I'm putting in front of employers and get some feedback as far as how to better present myself.
I don't perceive myself as being "all that," and I'm not fishing for affirmation. I want guys who are either in positions of authority or have the experience that qualifies them as being good "critics" of how I'm presenting my "stuff."

What's lacking? What can be tweaked? Perhaps there's some "dead weight" that I could do away with.
What do you think?
