How we built a custom CI/CD system using GitHub Actions and AWS CodeBuild

The engineering team at Simply Business deploy our many apps to production over 300 times a week. Until recently, we’ve used Jenkins as the main technology for our continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) needs.
