Happy Movember!

This November from here on out known as Movember. Movember is the global men’s health charity that encourages men to grow and women to support the moustache for 30 days to raise awareness and funds for men’s health – specifically prostate and testicular cancer initiatives. We’ve created Team about.me to help support men’s health.

A handful of other people on the platform already support Movember!

So join, donate, and help spread awareness.

Be sure to add ‘movember‘ as a tag so others can find you. If you update your page for Movember please comment!

GitHub is here!

We’re excited to announce GitHub integration on your about.me pages. As you can see, it’s now available to add at the Services tab of your Edit Profile view.

The GitHub modal shows both Repositories as well as Gists. Repositories display the language, number of watchers and forks.

A perk of GitHub is the static page hosting available for repositories. If there’s documentation or other content that is best displayed as a web page GitHub will host it for you. The best part about this is that updating it is as easy as pushing changes.

GitHub has been a blessing for our team when we need to make small changes to open source projects that we use. Just one click and we have our own fork of the project, yet we can stay up to date with the original project by merging in later patches and changes.

Likewise, GitHub makes it easy to contribute to original open source projects. This gives us the opportunity to return something to the communities that makes about.me possible in the first place.

GitHub is a standard space where startups look when considering candidates or looking for new hires. So if you are looking to show off your chops, add Github to your page!

With contributions from Jake.

Yesterday we mentioned a screen displaying employee profiles at Holiday Extras. Looking to set this up at your own office?

It can take just 3 steps. We provide a how-to on AppleTV below:

1) Capture screenshots of the profiles you want to display.

2) Place the screenshots in a new iPhoto album.

3) Set that iPhoto album as a screensaver on AppleTV.

Of course, we take it up a notch with nine screens as shown above. Have you set this up? We’d love to see examples!
