About your profile

Your profile page tells people the story of your work through the repositories you're interested in, the contributions you've made, and the conversations you've had.

You can add personal information about yourself in your bio, like previous places you've worked, projects you've contributed to, or interests you have that other people may like to know about. For more information, see "Adding a bio to your profile."

If you add a README file to the root of a public repository with the same name as your username, that README will automatically appear on your profile page. You can edit your profile README with GitHub Flavored Markdown to create a personalized section on your profile.
