Your GitHub Activity, Now Available on LinkedIn

linkedin150.jpgLinkedIn has teamed up with open source repository GitHub to help developers showcase their projects and build their professional networks.

LinkedIn has added a new application to its platform. By adding your GitHub account on LinkedIn, your projects will show up automatically as part of your profile there. Your network will be updated when you create, follow, or update any GitHub project.

You’ll also be able to see who else in your network is on GitHub and what projects they’re working on.

Adding this social layer to GitHub may be a boon for developers looking to highlight their work in this way as part of their professional identity. And it may certainly give LinkedIn even more data to assess changing patterns in employment and computer language projects.
