    I would recommend putting together a little portfolio website showing off your games and the code. Then put a link to the portfolio on your resume. I think it shows that you have initiative and a genuine interesting in programming, which are both great things to show to a potential employer.

    It certainly wouldn't hurt. I think you're overthinking things a bit. Put up your portfolio, make sure you know the basics, and practice interview questions. Good luck.

    i encountered this situation and based on what i remember in java internship.
    it was devastating as a simple java exercises exam but I AM NOT READY. i practice more on technical
    question rather than coding and so forth i did not get the chance. so practice the the two MOSTLY in coding
    they did not focused on what blings on your resume just focus on your PL and anything around it. im sure you
    will get that job.

    When I applied for my internship i put these little things on my resume....the interviewers gave me a fair bit of stick but they also appreciated my youthfulness and overall i think it helped me get the internship.....just shows your passion about the subject.
