GitHub Actions Cookbook: Authored by a Microsoft Regional Director, this book shows you how to leverage the power of the community-driven GitHub Actions workflow platform to automate repetitive engineering tasks

Say goodbye to tedious tasks! GitHub Actions is a powerful workflow engine that automates everything in the GitHub ecosystem, letting you focus on what matters most.

This book explains the GitHub Actions workflow syntax, the different kinds of actions, and how GitHub-hosted and self-hosted workflow runners work. You’ll get tips on how to author and debug GitHub Actions and workflows with Visual Studio Code (VS Code), run them locally, and leverage the power of GitHub Copilot. The book uses hands-on examples to walk you through real-world use cases that will help you automate the entire release process. You’ll cover everything, from automating the generation of release notes to building and testing your software and deploying securely to Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), or Google Cloud using OpenID Connect (OIDC), secrets, variables, environments, and approval checks.

The book goes beyond CI/CD by demonstrating recipes to execute IssueOps and automate other repetitive tasks using the GitHub CLI, GitHub APIs and SDKs, and GitHub Token. You’ll learn how to build your own actions and reusable workflows to share building blocks with the community or within your organization.

  • Author and debug GitHub Actions workflows with VS Code and Copilot
  • Run your workflows on GitHub-provided VMs (Linux, Windows, and macOS) or host your own runners in your infrastructure
  • Understand how to secure your workflows with GitHub Actions
  • Boost your productivity by automating workflows using GitHub’s powerful tools, such as the CLI, APIs, SDKs, and access tokens
  • Deploy to any cloud and platform in a secure and reliable way with staged or ring-based deployments

By the end of this GitHub Actions Cookbook book, you’ll have gained the skills you need to automate tasks and work with remarkable efficiency and agility.
