GitHub just dropped a new feature today.

You can now add a README to your GitHub profile! Think of it like an About Me section for your GitHub.

Here's how it works:

  1. Create a repo with your GitHub username (i.e. https://github.com/jeannienguyen/jeannienguyen)
  2. Create a README.md file inside the repo (you can initialize your repo with a README)
  3. Add content to your README (i.e. intro text, contact links, etc)
  4. Commit and git push your changes

That's it! I've included my profile and would love to see what your GitHub profile looks like--feel free to share the link to your profile below.

This is amazing!
Definitely deserves to be on the list:

Made a PR, feel free to modify the format.

I know I am blown away by that!

I'll probably take it off soon as I am not sure that it has a positive benefit. I don't want others to feel neglected when their count is low.

 

Love this new feature, thanks for posting Jeannie!

Just saw the README on your GitHub, Laurell - looks good! Thanks for reading!

 

Such a cool new feature!

I have a thread of examples running. You should add yours, or just stop by for inspiration.
