How I made my Github profile stand out !

Github
GitHub is a code hosting platform for version control and collaboration. It lets you and others work together on projects from anywhere.
For the past decade, Github has been heavily used for open-source collaborations, developer communities and code inspiration.

Here’s a Sample Github profile

Why you need to build an Exceptional Github Profile ?

There are three major reasons to build an exceptional Github profile -:

  • It works as a Resumé
  • It shows your Knowledge and Skills to Recruiters
  • It helps in connecting with other Developers

Choose a Github profile Readme Generator.

There are several readme generators online like
https://rahuldkjain.github.io/gh-profile-readme-generator/
https://share.streamlit.io/rahulbanerjee26/githubaboutmegenerator/main/__init__.py
but personally i prefer https://gprm.itsvg.in because README file generated using it is way more attractive than others i mentioned.

1. Enter your Github Username.

I don’t take any donations so i am gonna leave it empty but i suggest you to Donate to Vishwa Gaurav, the creator of this awesome website.

7. Add Additional details to make your profile more Attractive.

  • Add Github Trophies, i didn’t add them because mine aren’t very pleasing to view 🥲
  • Add Visitor Count
  • Add Random Dev Quotes and Random Memes, This can potentially show that you are a hilarious person to be around and work with.

8. Now go ahead and Copy Code.

9. Create new Github Repository.

The projects and activity on your GitHub account are infinitely more important than a sparkly profile

Surely it is but building a sparkly profile definitely adds a charm and makes a good first impression
