GitHub Actions (in|for) Raku

Containerizing Raku for testing and other automation tasks

GitHub has a nice environment for carrying out repository-event triggered workflows; these use a variety of runner platforms, including containers. This talk is about how to create a Raku container that can successfully act as a runner for workflows, and how to Rakuize the workflow API so that Raku scripts can interact meaningfully with this environment.

There are two parts on this talk; first, how to create a chain of increasingly complex Raku containers that can be used mainly for testing, and second, how to run some Raku scripts within those containers, with cool things that can be done inside those workflow using Raku.
