Look inside

You’re the IT Developer for Rocinante, a company looking to unite its scattered IT scripts and tools into one GitHub platform. To make this easier, you’ll build a GitHub management module with PowerShell, with automatic building implemented as a GitHub action. You’ll first build your module locally, then implement a CI/CD pipeline using GitHub’s built-in DevOps tools.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.
