I sure hope that you have gotten written, explicit permission to release
the code.  If you are getting paid to do it, then the job is work for
hire, and you do not own the copyright, so it is not under your
authority to release it publicly.

Make sure you've cleared it with your company before you go any further.
(If they have not already okayed it, it is unlikely that they would.)
