Thank you, I just converted short animations from mp4 to gif online. I recommend Canva animated images canva.com/join/caribbean-kasbah-ge... - search animated and there will be a few options to create a short video.

I am loving the profile READMEs! I made an old coworker a collaborator on mine as a joke and he made me one... Needless to say, I had to make some changes.

There is a link in the post that shows how to create a Profile README.

TLDR; Creating a repo with your handle as the name (Marlyn-suarez) will unlock the README.

I haven't really explored that much of it yet, but the official tutorials are excellent and really explain everything well so a beginner can jump straight in. So for now, that!

Excellent I am using it for my Twitch Overlay, for now, if powers static content, but it will power my chatbot soon. I love how easy it is to get a React App up and running. They also make it easy to make contributions to it.
