Consistent naming is important so that users of your GitHub account can easily find what they are looking for and so that you appear professional.
It is important when working in multiple projects to ensure consistent practices.
Structuring your repositories consistently makes your project feel professional, and makes it easier to work with as it is predictable.
When you have a public project in GitHub you have some graphs available that give you some statistics helping you to understand who is using your project and why they are using it. These graphs can be found under the Insights tab.

More and more projects are being created as Open Source. However just because you’re created an open source project doesn’t mean you give everything in your cookie jar away. You should only release your code subject to a licence agreement. A common confusion when putting projects onto Open Source platforms like GitHub is ‘What License Should I Use?”. We have our own opinions but we aren’t lawyers so if you want to know what’s best for you speak with your lawyer.
When you make a pull request or need to communicate the next actions someone needs to take in a GitHub comment, you should use a @mention.
