I understand the appeal of doing this, but I would not call this PRO, I would call it excessive. As mentioned in other similar posts, recruiters and other developers don't care about all this nonsense. We don't care what you listen to on spotify, we don't care about flashy images, and we don't care about your life here. That's what cvs and personal websites are for. Github should be used to share your code and contributions. KISS applies here as well. Just keep it simple and make it easy for me to get to your projects!

Edit: Of course you can put whatever you like, it's your profile, I'm looking it from a professional (and personal) standpoint!

The preposterousness of recruiters and pro devs thinking that Github profile readme is just for them 😁

We don't care what you listen to on spotify, we don't care about flashy images, and we don't care about your life here. That's what cvs and personal websites are for.

Arguably, cvs are not necessarily for what I listen on Spotify and definitely not for flashy images. And my cv and Linkedin profile are for recruiters. My profile on Github is for me and I'll put whatever I want in there, for other devs wanting to actually connect to see.

Fair enough, I'm not a recruiter by the way! I might've written it weirdly but I was refering to the life information and experience would be in the CV, not spotify and so on. Of course you can put whatever you want in your profile, my problem was calling it pro...

In their defense, the title says "cool github profile", I didn't even notice them saying it's also "pro" in the body 😁 full-on agreed!

I never thought github profiles are for recruiters nor pro developers, but the posts says how to create a pro github profile, which I don't think this overdone readme is. Just my opinion though! Of course feel free to put whatever you want to, just note that it mighht have a negative impact when looking for work (or maybe not)...

If my potential employer won't want to hire me because I said that - for example - I do Tarot readings in my free time, it's πŸ’― an employer I do not want to work for.

While I don't agree with Keff on my Github profile having to be concise and about my professionalism, I think it's bit excessive. The massive animated header is an overkill, the buymeacoffee plug feels unnecessary (why would I want to do that?) and your "cute beardy guy coding on laptop" gif has a C# sticker on his laptop while you don't even list C# as your skill 😁

And, uhh... that's obviously my personal opinion, but your profile picture does stand out in professional environment, and not in a good way.
