Finding special repository and creating readme for GitHub profile

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

You just need to create a repository with same name as your username and initialise it with a readme file. That’s all!
As soon as you type this repository name, GitHub will greet you that you have found the secret to creating a profile.
