Make your Github Profile Look Great

We at PMG are huge supporters of the Git/Github code workflow. We, like many agencies, use the standard flow of branching, committing and pull requesting all of the code we write. However, a lot of this code is priority and lives in private repos, which makes your Github contribution chart a little bland to outside users.

However, with a small change in Github, you can show private activity (although what you are actually working on is still private) to anyone viewing your Github profile page.

Use the “Contribution Settings” dropdown to show the private commits you have uploaded to Github.
