Hi guys! I trust y’all had a good day?

Our focus today is the amazing special feature for developers, designers, etc. that was added by GitHub recently. This feature allows you to showcase yourself not just by building but by adding information about your work, portfolio, and anything else on your GitHub Profile.

Have got some favorites readme I will like to share with you before we proceed:

Now let's create something magical 🤗

Some prerequisite :


  • Create a GitHub account
  • Basic Markdown knowledge for a smooth experience

Steps are as follows:

  • Create a new public repository with your username and ensure you use the same case as your GitHub username.

    newrepo

  • Click on the checkbox: Initialize this repository with a README file. This will create a README.md file inside your repository.

    initialize

  • Now you can edit the readme to your taste. Remember, you can add images, text, lists, etc. You also get a free template from GitHub out of the box.
