With this course, you'll learn:

  • About all key GitHub Actions building blocks & components
  • How to build and orchestrate both simple and complex workflows
  • How to connect workflows to events & configure event details
  • How to run jobs or job steps conditionally
  • How to manage environment variables
  • How to handle job results, outputs and inputs
  • How to leverage community actions
  • How to build custom actions
  • How to secure workflows and jobs
  • And much more!

This course requires no prior GitHub Actions knowledge. You also don't need to be an advanced developer or Git & GitHub user, though fundamental development and Git knowledge is recommended - though the course does come with a Git & GitHub refresher module.

This course is a practice-oriented courses, exploring all key concepts whilst diving into concrete examples. You'll build different workflows for multiple projects and requirements.

The more I go through this course, the more incredible I think it is! The course is well organized and practical knowledge. The instructor uses best practices, and is consistently updating the course so I just keep getting more and more value from my initial purchase.

I feel like I learned a ton and feel like I can build custom apps to store on the flat thingy I keep in my pocket! Thanks for the course. It's great. Highly recommended.

Rachael Bouissey

As always, great teacher. I got a lot out of the React course and React Native is starting out just as helpful. Never would have made it through bootcamp without Maximillian!

As a self-taught professional I really know the hard parts and the difficult topics when learning new or improving on already-known languages. This background and experience enable me to focus on the most relevant key concepts and topics. My track record of many 5-star rated courses, more than 1,500,000 students worldwide as well as a successful YouTube channel is the best proof for that.

The most rewarding experience for me is to see how people find new, better jobs, build awesome web applications, work on amazing projects or simply enjoy their hobby with the help of my content.

That's why, together with Manuel Lorenz, I founded Academind to offer the best possible learning experience and to share the pleasure of learning with our students.
