Continuous delivery is essential for modern businesses and projects. In this session, you will get an overview of how to use the GitHub tool suite to implement continuous delivery and DevOps for your projects or organization.

First, we start with the exploration of GitHub Repositories and how to set up your your repository to deliver compliant software. We create new repositories, push to the GitHub cloud-based service, set up branch policies, and use GitHub pull requests to ensure a "four eyes" principle for all code changes. This will help you satisfy a very important requirement for most enterprises. Next, you'll learn how you can use GitHub Issues, projects, and pages to support your team in their agile way of work and the way this integrates with the repo to provide end-to-end traceability from requirement to code change. Then, we look at automation and how we can use GitHub Actions to automate everything, how to build a pull request verification, and how to deploy the software to the Microsoft Azure Platform so you can implement continuous delivery.

Finally, after you know how to automate everything, we go into the use of package management and the use of the supply chain tools to ensure you scan your code for known vulnerabilities, and the scanning of packages that also can contain known vulnerabilities. we include with the use of Codespaces, which provides a cloud-based Integrated Development Environment for your team members and enables remote work from anywhere without the need for any installation of software on your local computer. At the end of this session, you will have a clear overview of what the GitHub tool suite can do for you and how you can use it to implement continuous delivery and DevOps in your organization to deliver software to the Azure Cloud.

You will learn:

  • Get an overview of GitHub toolset
  • Setup GitHub to enable Secure and Compliant Software delivery
  • Setup a Cloud development environment for your team
