Between running unit tests, validating machine learning models, and deploying projects there are numerous tasks outside of writing code which often involves interacting with external tools. This takes developers out of the flow, slows development, and increases the likelihood of mistakes. Automating these processes with a toolkit which meets developers where they are ensures consistency and improves velocity.

Join us as we explore how GitHub Actions can automate tedious tasks.
