AppSec expert Niroshan Rajadurai says putting developers at the center of everything will enable you to meet your security goals.
While logged in, with the app open, you will automatically receive notifications from the repositories that you watch:
Notifications will be shown for the usual things, like issues and pull requests being opened/closed/commented on, as well as git events, like commits being pushed, or branches and tags being created/deleted. Clicking on any notification will open up more details on GitHub.com.
Update: We’ve since removed notifications from GitHub for Mac because the feature was kind of half-baked, and we prefer not to use half-measures. We might reintroduce it in a future release after we’ve had some more time to think about how it should work. In the meantime, we recommend that you use the website notifications or email notifications.
