Today is your last chance to submit your @github profile for the contest. So many inspiring profiles have been shared this month

More mazes?! Yes, please!

This time, it’s with a twist:
Pathbot only gives you directions, not the maze itself.

Can you make it through? 

You might not be able to tell from the name, but Sortbot likes things to be organized.

Get the values in the correct order...

Ask Wordbot to write you a novel, a poem, feed you inspiration, and it will...
But it might not make sense.

Up to a thousand words are delivered—it’s up to you to figure out what to do with them! 

Riddlebot might just turn you into the world’s greatest hacker-spy as it feeds you encoded strings to decrypt.

Every level continues to get harder… can you keep up? 

GitHub is a worldwide community and we’re proud to bring that same global mindset to our help documentation.

You can now find localized help docs written in Japanese and Simplified Chinese via the drop-down menu on the top right.
