Profile is a new GitHub feature that helps to showcase your professional credentials on your GitHub profile. I can confidently say that it is going to be your new resume. It requires a readme.md file as the back-end.
Creating a repository for GitHub Profile

As soon as you type this repository name, GitHub will greet you that you have found the secret to creating a profile.
Edit the README.md content to customise with your information and you are good to go. Here is how my profile looks.
