We’re wrapping up our second week of #DevDecember, continuing our journey of looking back at 30 of our favorite dev and Azure moments from 2019. Here’s this week’s line up in case you missed them earlier:

 

This week in #DevDecember:

Sneak peek at December 14: GitHub Actions

With GitHub Actions, thousands of workflows and steps are available as code in a repository, so you can create, share, reuse, and fork your software development practices.

Sneak peek at December 15: Achieve More with Microsoft Game Stack

Microsoft Game Stack helps game developers easily discover the tools and services they need to create and operate games. Game Stack is a whole ecosystem in one, bringing together all of our game-development platforms, tools, and services—including Azure, PlayFab, DirectX, Visual Studio, Xbox Live, App Center, and Havok.
