Look inside

As the IT Developer for Rocinante, your primary objective is to streamline and centralize the company's scattered IT scripts and tools. By leveraging the power of a unified GitHub platform, you will bring together these resources, empowering your team with a consolidated and efficient solution. The GitHub management module has been meticulously crafted, adhering to community standards and fortified with automated tests and linting—now you need to prepare the module for packaging and publication, enabling effortless sharing with others through the Install-Module cmdlet. Additionally, you’ll tackle the crucial task of testing the modules across Linux and Windows environments, culminating in creating an official release on GitHub.

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