GitHub released an octocat builder. I was waiting for this for many years and I am super excited. I am curious how dev.to would look like if we a... [Read Full]

Can't find black hair, and black glasses, but looks about right. :) Can't start a day without coffee either.

(And I feel a sense of accomplishment managing to add this image and comment in markdown on my phone \o/)


I really love this one :D no coffee no morning


But I can see only five legs πŸ€”


Greetings, Earthlings.

I come from planet of water, Meowearth 🌍.
Our species has evolved & can't breathe underwater.

I offer you our treasure, Orichalcum, as a sign of friendship.



Looking good. Loved it.


This is amazing. I just want to make it into a sticker now!

IKR, just what I was thinking. Got to make these into Telegram stickers too.


It could be more accurate, but I like it. Sadly, I couldn't find the "oversized jumper" option or the "balding dude" option.

I think you forgot to add the picture?!
Didn't load earlier


Yeah, I didn't realise that I had to copy the uploaded image URL and add it to the markdown. I assumed it'd just tack on to the end. Whoops!

Thanks for the heads up. :)


I used my natural hair rather than purple cause it clashed too much, but that was fun!

I did the opposite and went with purple.


Except for the T-Shirt this is a pretty reasonable depiction of how I look a fair amount of the time (though I tend to exchange the coffee for a beer as it gets later in the day).



Here's mine! It's not a fancy one, I just work from home.



There weren't enough customisations available to make it match better but got close enough (I got a much shorter beard haha).

Finally, something useful to do today :-)

Is that bubble tea? What flavour?


Mmm... Looks like thai milk tea from the color.

It's Pepsi Max of course! It is what keeps me going.


Very much could be customized more, but from the available options, this seems very close

Blue Version


Fun way to start the day!


Too many books. So little time.

Well... I wear black glasses and I don't usually wear grey, but they didn't have anything else, colour-wise. :D


I call it the "Jewish Octocat" and it mainly reflects me as I always have an iced coffee nearby

Could not have been more stoked for the Viking cap!!! Many moons ago, I attempted to start a record label (The Littlest Viking) and the Viking cap was my main logo. <3



I couldn't find a way to place the github logo behind the laptop...


PS: I'm actually more like the next one, I just did this for fun 😊


This makes me realize that I default pretty androgynous

Jeans, hoodie, sandals, smartwatch, videogames/phone, new bifocals, short hair


No Image found

Here I am , searching for buggy code

Here's me. Though I generally avoid holding squirrels.


I guess that's pretty much how I look like arriving at work everyday πŸ˜†


Bearded bunnyflop
I have no mustache in real life but the beard is nice :).
I can't live a day without coffee.
The bunny slippers where too funny not to put the feet :p


Me at the studio 😁

This is my octocat alter ego. Black hair (I liked the blue color), little eyes, indie wear and my cup of coffee.

Somehow the squirrel felt right!
Suspect that's because it's been a long day.



I just found this site yesterday. It is super fun. I really like the results of selecting the random button. Super fun. Here's mine I made:

Me going for job interview


That was fun to make. Not that far from the truth ;)


Johnson's Octocat
Just created mine, check it out guys. LOL


So great! All that's missing is a stroller and baby octocat.

Coffee anyone !? 😎✌️

Just went through the process of designing mine, and I think it looks a little like my robot avatar:

Never mind! I'm a doofus...Haha. I see it at the bottom. πŸ€ͺ


Why do you think it's not in the main thread? Or maybe I am just not used to dev.to yet.


I'm late to the party! I blame the identity crisis I'm experiencing while separating from the military!



I miss the lightsaber, though



Coolest feature ever.


The perfect self-portrait

Coffee and a bit of wizardry, that's how i'm working !

Nothing can beat the music and good ol' coffee!

Nothing can beat the music and good ol' coffee



Or at least how I sometimes feel...


Rock style !!! πŸ˜€



My octocat! I couldn't decide whether to go with the jester hat or not, so I left it out :D

Here's mine πŸ˜‚



@pxlpnk Where can I find the Octocat Builder?


Omg I totally missed to add the link: myoctocat.com/
So sorry!


I like to read a lot and I'm usually wearing noise-canceling headphones when on the computer so I thought this was the best look for me.


Nothing can beat the music and good ol' coffee


I like the coffee and the accurate representation of my hair situation :P



It's the closest I could get to real me !
