Compare Traditional and Enriched GitHub Workflows

The concern is documenting the difference between traditional and enriched github workflow as discussed in

https://www.pluralsight.com/courses/github-actions-getting-started

1. traditional

  1. create a feature branch from master
  2. add commits
  3. open pull requests → showcase changes to other team members
  4. discuss and review commits, or, add more commits if needed
  5. once ready, deploy changes to the master branch; run tests; checkout changes into prod
  6. merge into master when all looks good and delete the feature branch

2. enriched

  1. add branch protection to our master branch
  2. you can set up continuous integration (CI)
  3. add another branch protection to our pull request to require a review before it can be merged
  4. setup continuous deployment to a cloud provider (AWS, GCP, Azure)
  5. require specific tests to pass for confirmation
  6. merge the branch into the base branch
