Did You Know I Have A YouTube Channel?
Yes, I do! I even have a vanity URL for it: https://youtube.com/mickeygousset. I’ve been adding DevOps related content (as well as a video log, which I’m about to reboot) on a pretty regular basis. Which brings me to the topic of this post: GitHub Project Boards
How Do You Plan The Work That Needs To Be Done?
It is important that your team be able to plan the work that needs to be done on your project. In Azure DevOps, you do this using Azure Boards. In GitHub, you initially do this using GitHub Issues. GitHub Project Boards builds on top of that, allowing you to use a Kanban-style board to track notes, issues, and pull requests related to your project.
A project board can be linked to multiple GitHub repositories, and you can take an issue or pull request, and add it to multiple boards, providing maximum flexibility in how you view your work and what processes you want to follow. The boards are customizable with custom columns, and can also contain automation, allowing your issues and pull requests to flow through your board, based off events thrown by the issues and pull requests.

I’ve really tried to up my content and video quality with this series, including both slides and demos, and better audio quality as well. I’d love any feedback you might have on the videos, as well as any suggestions on future videos you’d like to see. You can either leave comments at my Youtube channel, or send me a tweet with your questions and comments.
My next video series is going to be all about GitHub Actions, starting with the very basics, and ultimately diving deep into the inner workings, including building your own actions. I’d love for you to join me on my YouTube journey, so please like my videos and subscribe to my channel.
