Automating Everything with GitLab CI

English training

In a world with complex software projects, distributed development teams and constantly recurring manual tasks, the pressure to automate processes quickly increases to painful levels. A very common and successful means of introducing automation is the use of continuous integration.

In this workshop, you will discover what continuous integration means and how to get the most out of GitLab CI to automate all the things by taking a hands-on deep dive. We'll start from a basic GitLab installation to setup our build environments and create our pipeline from scratch! We'll explore various options to have pipelines build, get our tests run, assets compiled, and the software nicely packaged, containerized and even deployed.
