Prepare for the GitHub Foundations exam

In january 2024 GitHub launched his certification program. There are 4 certifications available:

  • GitHub Foundations. Designed to introduce learners new to the GitHub platform fundamental concepts and products of GitHub.
  • GitHub Actions. Designed to learn how to build CI/CD pipelines, manage GitHub Actions for enterprises.
  • GitHub Advanced Security (GHAS). Designed to teach you how to secure your code with advanced security features at every stage of your development lifecycle. GHAS is specific to GitHub Enterprise!
  • GitHub Administration. Designed to teach you everything you need to maintain a healthy, robust, and secure GitHub environment that supports the needs of your organization.

The first exam I prepared for is the GitHub Foundations exam.


I passed the exam on march 23, 2024.
