The GitHub recently announced Actions, a new tool that makes it possible to automate your workflow in conjunction with a rich set of features, including linking and sharing software development components.
From a technical point of view, GitHub Actions allows you to perform a series of tasks, such as building, packaging and updating projects without any code, all by simply automating the process with predefined actions.
GitHub Actions supports all languages and is currently available as a limited public beta - this means you must register as soon as possible to try it out as the company can stop accepting new testers.
Meanwhile, GitHub expects the approval of the regulator to complete its takeover by Microsoft. Rumors argue that the European Union has already approved the agreement and will soon release a communication on the issue.
Information, for those of you who do not know it or not microsoft will buy GitHub for 7,5 billions of dollars, making it the second biggest acquisition that the giant has made. The first largest acquisition took place last year, amounting to 26 billion dollars, and it concerns the LinkedIn social network that now belongs to Microsoft.
