Thank you for purchasing the MEAP for GitHub Actions in Action. We hope it will give you a kick-start into what is in our opinion the best and most flexible workflow platform for engineers.

The book consists of three parts. Part 1 explains the basics of GitHub actions. It uses a practical, hands-on approach – but it covers all basics with simple examples. Part 2 explains the workflow runtime in depth. This knowledge will help you completely understand the platform's architecture and security considerations. Part 3 covers the whole topic of CI/CD – the main use case for GitHub Actions. This part contains more complex real-life examples. It also dives into security, compliance, and optimizing performance and costs.

Please let us know your thoughts in the liveBook Discussion forum on what's been written so far [and what you'd like to see in the rest of the book]. Your feedback will be invaluable in improving GitHub Actions in Action.

Thanks again for your interest and for purchasing the MEAP!
