Talks for Ruby Galaxy April 🌌

Setup Ruby for GitHub Actions and MySpace

DevOps goals have stayed the same over the year, but our tools, infrastructure, and operating models have changed. To support modern software delivery, organizations must establish and share proven developer workflows. This talk will focus on building an automated README with GitHub Actions. Plan to leave this talk with ideas on how you can automate new portions of your software development workflows, outside of CI/CD.

In addition to that, Brian has a passion open source and loves mentoring new contributors.
