Take your DevOps and DevSecOps game to the next level by leveraging the power of the GitHub toolset in practice
- Release software faster and with confidence
- Increase your productivity by spending more time on software delivery and less on fixing bugs and administrative tasks
- Deliver high-quality software that is more stable, scalable, and secure
This practical guide to DevOps uses GitHub as the DevOps platform and shows how you can leverage the power of GitHub for collaboration, lean management, and secure and fast software delivery.
The chapters provide simple solutions to common problems, thereby helping teams that are already on their DevOps journey to further advance into DevOps and speed up their software delivery performance. From finding the right metrics to measure your success to learning from other teams’ success stories without merely copying what they’ve done, this book has it all in one place. As you advance, you’ll find out how you can leverage the power of GitHub to accelerate your value delivery – by making work visible with GitHub Projects, measuring the right metrics with GitHub Insights, using solid and proven engineering practices with GitHub Actions and Advanced Security, and moving to event-based and loosely coupled software architecture.
By the end of this GitHub book, you’ll have understood what factors influence software delivery performance and how you can measure your capabilities, thus realizing where you stand in your journey and how you can move forward.
