I've tinkered with a ton of programming tools this year, but none of them has captured my heart like GitHub Actions. It's a continuous integration tool, yes, but it's also a general purpose code execution platform, and it's built into the website that I use to manage my projects every day.
In this video, we'll explore the what, the why, and the how of GitHub Actions, building a very typical weather bot with a not-so-typical deployment strategy: it's deployed and run daily using GitHub Actions. In building the project, we'll understand how to get up and running with GitHub Actions, how to securely store environment variables and configuration details in our repositories, and much more.
