The format that has worked best for me is a summary that summarizes the qualifications and past results I think the target company will be most interested in, followed by a conventional chronological employment history. Some aspects of functional resumes and T-letters can help make you stand out, especially to non-tech readers such as HR and recruiters, but tech hiring managers (myself included, perhaps) still like resumes that include the traditional detail points.
