[Azure Saturday Belgrade] Deploying to Azure: Azure DevOps Pipelines vs GitHub Actions

When it comes to infrastructure as code, pipelines help you automate the processes around the code so you are always sure your environment is consistent. Azure DevOps has been around for a while. Two years ago, GitHub announced a new pipeline on the block: GitHub Actions. You are able to deploy to Azure as well, but how do they compare?
