I've had a Gitlab account for a couple of years because of their facility for free Private repos and since then I have pondered moving all my Public Github repos across but never had the inspiration. The main reason not to was because Github was the de-facto Source Control site, so when dealing with non-tech people like recruiters, it was easier to just point people at Github rather than explaining the lesser known (at the time) Gitlab.
Now with the acquisition of Github by Microsoft, I've got the inspiration. With the exodus of many repos to Gitlab, they now have a much greater reputation outside the tech-circle so my code has now been moved.
The Github projects still exist but just have a README.md directing people to Gitlab.
