PowerShell & DevOps Summit: Move over TypeScript, PowerShell has come to GitHub Actions

In August 2020, GitHub added support for PowerShell within GitHub Composite Actions for all of their runners, including Ubuntu, Mac OS, and Windows. GitHub Actions allow you to create reusable actions using shell scripts and even mix multiple shell languages in the same action. You probably have a lot of shell scripts to automate many tasks, now you can easily turn them into action and reuse them for different workflows. This Action-packed presentation will show you how fun and useful this new GitHub feature can be. Combined with Docker containers, the possibilities are endless.
