StackOverflow Careers now includes user activity from CodePlex

Stack Overflow Careers is an innovative new job site for programmers.  One thing they have recognized is that participation in open source projects is a great way for potential employers to learn more about a job candidate, and also give developers a new way of differentiating themselves with employers.  So they have now announced the ability to automatically incorporate your work on CodePlex projects into your StackOverflow Careers 2.0 profile.


We provide a secure way for StackOverflow to confirm that you are indeed a member of your CodePlex projects, and then display those projects on your profile.


Additionally, since StackOverflow Careers is invitation only, they have provided a mechanism where you can prequalify to join if you are an active developer on CodePlex.


You can check to see if you prequalify here.

    How do other services out there register as an oauth application so they too can verify someone is a member of a CodePlex project and

    1. Retrieve public information about you.

    2. Retrieve public information about your projects.

    Just like STACK OVERFLOW CAREERS does?
