    Topic 1 - Welcome to the show. Tell us a little bit about your background, as you’ve been working on developer productivity for quite a while?

    Topic 2 - We’ve been watching this trend of GitHub moving from a place where developers put code, to a place where they collaborate around code, and now it’s expanding out to a full lifecycle around both the code and running applications. Let’s talk about that evolution.

    Topic 3 - Help us understand the basics of GitHub Actions and GitHub Packages.

    Topic 4 - What sort of feedback was coming in from developers that pushed GitHub to get more involved in the complete DevOps lifecycle?

    Topic 5 - Can you talk about the growth of Actions/Packages since they launched in early 2019? What are some of the interesting use-cases you’ve seen?

    Topic 6 - If you’re able to give us a glimpse into the future, what are some of the other areas where GitHub can expand Actions, or you’re starting to see users push it’s capabilities?
