Supercharge Your Workflow: To GitHub and Beyond

New

Whether you are new or experienced with GitHub this class is for you! Supercharging your workflow caters to anyone who wants to enhance their Agile and DevOps process with the capabilities of GitHub. GitHub has long been the premier site for open-source projects and is now turning a pivotal corner into becoming the predominant platform for all aspects of the development lifecycle. Some examples of this include; protecting company code through various GitHub Products or curating marketplace actions and workflows prior to use. This tutorial will look at how to leverage GitHub Actions (CI/CD), automate issue creation and assignments in GitHub Projects, leverage discussion information into actionable feedback, and how to seamlessly shift left using repository protection and vulnerability remediation tools built into GitHub. Finally, what tutorial would be complete without some AI!? GitHub CoPilot presents a new approach to software development and if that interests you, come join Phil and Dalton for this tutorial.
