Create Your GitHub Profile

GitHub recently released a feature that allows users to create a profile-level README.md to display prominently on their GitHub profile. A new GitHub profile feature allows more visual contents than the profile bio.

How do I create my profile README ?

Step 1: Create a new repository with the same name as your GitHub username

Create a new repository and set the repository name as your GitHub username.

Check option Public and Initialize this repository with a README

Create a new repository by clicking the Create repository

Step 2: Change your README.md

GitHub README profile are written in Markdown and you need to learn Markdown Syntax

Markdown is a way to style text on the web. You control the display of the document; formatting words as bold or italic, adding images, and creating lists are just a few of the things we can do with Markdown. Mostly, Markdown is just regular text with a few non-alphabetic characters thrown in, like # or *.

Commit your README changes and see your new GitHub Profile.

Example

Here is my README.md / source code.

I use GitHub Readme Stats to get dynamically generated GitHub stats. In my README.md, I customize my GitHub Readme Stats and you can use this by copying my source code and change the username in these links.
