Spruce it up

Now that you have a readme profile, we can admit that it is pretty basic. Take a minute to Google a few GitHub profile repos. I did this to get some inspiration on my current repo.

Commit and Launch

To work on your repo locally, you can clone it. You can find some documentation on this from GitHub docs. After you are satisfied with your markdown (you can preview this when you edit remotely), don’t forget to commit all of your changes. This is particularly important when you are editing your repo from a local host like Jupyter Notebook.
