Have you ever looked at a project README.md and the first two to three lines are filled up with little graphics telling you the various stats of the project? The “badges” have become popular because they are a quick way for developers to communicate information about the project.
I want badges for my life. When people look at my life's README.md, what badges do I want them to see? What badges do they really see? What can I do to control this?
Join me as we jog through the list of Life Badges I want people to see on my life's repo. Along the way, we'll pause briefly to examine what each badge means, and what color is appropriate. As we examine README.md, you may be surprised at what you learn about me…and about your own life badges.
