Get Hooked on Integrations With Github

DPA2 Development, Programming and Architecture

Location: Cotton Row

MONDAY, 9:30 - 10:15 a.m.

Github service hooks are awesome tools for developers to integrate Github into the systems their organization uses. Even though there are over 75 items listed in Github’s integrations directory, this presentation will highlight just a few of the interesting ones. Also, we will look at a case study where Loma Linda University leveraged Github’s webhooks, a way to integrate with systems not in the integrations directory, to implement an automated deployment process for their in-house developed intranet portal platform.
