Workshop / Pre-Conference (August 4th, 2022)

End-to-end DevOps with GitHub


GitHub is more than just a place to keep your code. GitHub offers features that cover your whole DevOps lifecycle from idea all the way into production.

This hands-on workshop will take you through an end-to-end software lifecycle, starting with GitHub Issues and Projects for planning, GitHub Codespaces for a super efficient inner loop of development, and GitHub Actions to take your applications into production.

You will learn:

  • How to effectively plan and track your work using GitHub Issues
  • How to manage your projects within and across repositories in your organisation
  • The free and paid options for coding in the cloud, including the web editor and GitHub Codespaces
  • How to use GitHub Actions for CI/CD
  • How and when to use GitHub Actions for non-CI/CD automation
  • Techniques and strategies for safe and effective software engineering using GitHub tooling
  • Techniques for effective collaboration in remote teams

Topics:

  • Planning and Tracking with GitHub Issues (Introduction to Issues, Basic features, Task Lists and cross-references, GitHub Projects)
  • The Inner Loop with Codespaces (The web editor, Codespaces)
  • Automation with Actions (Introduction to Actions, Syntax and capabilities, Workflow structures and strategies, Environments and approvals, Non-CI/CD automation)

Who should attend:

Software engineers, team leads, and DevOps specialists, regardless of their level of GitHub adoption.
