Featured Developmental Projects
Continuous Deployment and Integration through GithubCurrently in R&D
Orchestrating a continuous deployment and integration system for code modifications is a sophisticated task that demands substantial effort and proficiency in proprietary development.
Recognized as a distinguished leader in development operations, I have consistently found this challenge captivating and have persistently aimed to enhance existing procedures. With the universal acceptance of GitHub as the premier platform for monitoring code alterations and the accessibility of advanced features and tools, I embarked on a personal journey to investigate the potential of harnessing these resources to establish a comprehensive continuous deployment and integration system, even as a complimentary user. I successfully engineered and presently sustain a functional continuous deployment and integration system for one of my most active projects on GitHub
While further documentation and explanation will be provided in due course, I invite you to witness the system in action by visiting the following link,
