Using GitHub Actions to Build With the Language You With Ben Greenberg | Kongcast Episode 3
There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to developers. In this Kongcast episode, Ben Greenberg, Developer Advocate at Orbit, chats with us about building better engineering communities and focusing on the outcomes rather than technology. At the end, he shows us how he leveraged GitHub Actions to create a copy-and-paste workflow that integrates services, no matter the language they’re written in.
