Creating GitHub release using Azure DevOps pipeline

Creating GitHub release using Azure DevOps pipeline

GitHub is pretty much the defacto-standard for hosting source code for Open Source projects. While it excels at hosting Source Code, it lacks automated builds and as such requires integration with systems like Azure DevOps, Jenkins or similar. For most of my projects, I do my builds using Azure DevOps and while Azure DevOps pushes updated nuget packages to nuget.org, I wanted to configure it to create releases on GitHub as well with the binaries produced.
