Github Actions is a Continuous Integration (CI) + Continuous Deployment (CD) tool by Github.
CI and CD are bombastic terms, but they simply mean the following:
Although Github Actions is one of the many CI + CD Tools out there, it’s probably the simplest one to use (in my experience). Unfortunately, the Github Actions docs is a complete mess — they keep pointing you to different pages, expecting you to read everything (and understand everything) when you’re still trying to set up your first action.
Automate, customize, and execute your software development workflows right in your repository with GitHub Actions. You can discover, create, and share actions to perform any job you’d like, including CI/CD, and combine actions in a completely customized workflow.

I recently deployed my portfolio site and wanted to try out github actions and this is my experience of automating the deployment.
This article is more focused on how you can use the GitHub actions and how easy it is to deploy your code to GitHub pages rather than the portfolio site code.So every time you make an update or build to your website ,the changes are automatically reflected and this automated deploying process makes work much faster.
The way GitHub action works is you create actions in your repositories by creating one or more yaml files and these are called workflows.Workflows now can handle build tasks like CI CD. This means you use the action to test your code and push the site to the desired hosting platform (in this case GitHub pages ) when the main branch changes .
First step assuming that you have a GitHub account is to create a repository having your website code in it.Now I have a bootstrap website but in the future I do plan on adding node JS so I already added package.json.

A short tutorial on how to deploy an Azure function using GitHub action.
As we know, GitHub Actions help us automate tasks, for example, executing an integration/deployment pipeline as we create a release, or running integration test scripts after pull request event, or maybe just simply an acknowledgment to a user who has created an issue against your repository.
Here, we will create a simple Github action to deploy an HTTP Trigger Azure function to Azure Function App.
Step 1, is to create a function app in Azure. I am not going into the details of how to create the function app. You can either use an easy self-guided** Azure portal** or Azure CLI to create a function app.
Once we have created a function app in Azure, one key thing we have to do is download its publish profile, as we will need it to deploy the function to the function app from GitHub.
One key thing to do here is add the below configuration parameter to configuration settings of the function app:

If you have project code hosted on GitHub, chances are you might be interested in checking some numbers and stats such as stars, commits and pull requests.
You might also want to compare some similar projects in terms of the above mentioned stats, for whatever reasons that interest you.
We have the right tool for you: the simple and easy-to-use little tool called GitHub Stats.
Let’s dive right in to what we can get out of it.
This interactive tool is really easy to use. Follow the three steps below and you’ll get what you want in real-time:
1. Head to the GitHub repo of the tool
2. Enter as many projects as you need to check on
3. Hit the Update button beside each metric
In this article we are going to compare three most popular machine learning projects for you.
