Code to Cloud update

We’re back with another promising update from the Code to Cloud world.

Let’s do this thing!

Output Markdown using GitHub Actions Job Summaries :star:

Our team recently introduced yet another exciting feature for GitHub Actions that lets you induce markdown files and publish them as a job summary.

If you’ve encountered a scenario where after running some tests you wanted to know how many passed, failed, or were skipped at a glance rather than digging through hundreds of lines of log output. This feature is for you!

Same as pull requests and issues, an action can generate custom Markdown content on the run summary generated by each job. To learn more check out this blog post from the GitHub Actions engineering team.

Back to Basics :pen:

Do you want to learn more about GitHub Actions, brush up your basics or know someone who’d like to get started? It is easier than you think. Check out this awesome community post with 3 simple steps to get a head start on your GitHub Actions learning.

We’re on a mission to protect your code… :closed_lock_with_key:

The GitHub Security Lab wants to help secure developer code from any security vulnerabilities. According to a new Secure Code Warrior survey, almost 86% of developers do not view application security as a top priority.

Take a look at some of the most common security vulnerabilities and learn how you can best protect yourself.

FYI: To level up your security, GitHub will require all users who contribute code on to enable one or more forms of two-factor authentication (2FA) by the end of 2023. Learn more about this change here

GitHub Hosted Runners: Ubuntu 22.0.4 BETA is now available :ballot_box_with_check:

A beta of the Ubuntu 22.04 runner image for GitHub Actions is now available. Start using GitHub Actions to build software on the latest version of Ubuntu by updating your jobs to include runs-on: ubuntu-22.04

We also shipped the public beta of macOS 12 for GitHub-hosted runners last month :tada:.

Lights Camera Actions! :raised_hands:
