Tech Thursday: GitHub Actions Workflows

We are all captivated by GitHub Actions and its powerful features for automating each step of software development. Workflows are the building blocks of Actions and can be utilized in different ways.

There is no right or wrong way of creating a workflow that best suits your needs, however, while creating simple and accurate workflows, I often remind myself of these three things:

  • Keep the workflow efficient using concurrency, time is precious so keep it simple and organized.
  • Visualize steps and dependencies of your workflow to reduce duplication.
  • Include Actions in the workflow to supercharge your CI/CD pipeline.

What are some of the workflows you’ve created? Share with us below!
